“What a Find!”
Reviewed 12 June 2013

Stayed here for a night en-route to the UCI Downhill Word Cup in Fort William with my son and a couple of his friends. Found via the International Hostelling site. Fantastic value in a beautiful location within easy reach of both Fort William and Loch Ness.
It looks like a big modern house which has been converted to be a hostel. We had a 5-bedded room with 2 sets of bunk beds and a shower to ourselves with plenty of space to spread ourselves out in. Large well-equipped kitchen and comfortable lounge (how many hostels have a piano and a TV in them) and free WiFi and internet access

Blantyre Hillwalking & Rambling (we don't do rambling, but its what we have been called for the last 25 odd years) Club used this hostel as a base for 22 of our members to roam the surrounding hills & what a weekend we had.:>)
Three days of glorious sunshine, clear skies & little wind, allowed us to wander the hills that surround this excellent base.........which could be utilised for any number of outdoor activities or even just getting away from it all.
Comfy, cosy accomodation,plenty of space in the rooms - good nights sleep in the beds:>)
Plenty of space to relax in the lounge, ample dining space & kitchen....could do with another fridge.
Will revisit either as a group or individual.......pity the local hotel is so expensive, food is nice but portions a bit small :>(

Room Tip: A better base for walking the hills than Fort William.....Invergarry is central to more Munro's...

We stayed in this hostel as a group of 4, sharing a room with 2 bunk beds and plenty of floor space for bags and spreading stuff around! It was really comfortable and cosy, the carpeted floors made it feel very homely. The place was spotless, kitchen really big and well equipped with everything you could need. The rooms were good, individual lights at each bed, thick warm quilts and a sink, toilet and shower in the room. The lounge area is wonderful to relax in after a long day outside, plenty of comfy sofas, games, tv with DVD player. The drying room was very effective at drying out 4 people's wet kayaking gear in December! Overall a really comfortable place to stay, I'd definitely stay again and will recommend it to friends. It is more like a B&B in feel and atmosphere inside.

Room Tip: Any, they are all large and spacious!

I stayed in this hostel with a friend last week when we were on a quick tour of the Highlands. It was really comfortable and cosy. The place was spotless, kitchen really big and well equipped with everything you could need. The rooms were good, individual lights at each bed, thick warm quilts and a sink in the room. The lounge area was great, plenty of sofas, board games, tv with DVD player. Overall a really comfortable place to stay, I'd definitely stay again and will recommend it to friends.

My partner and me did the Glen Great Way by bike and was a perfect place to rest. The kitchen is spacious and you can buy the breakfast in a good price.
There were many bathrooms but with some inofensive spiders. The best of this hostel is the staff, always helpful. You can leave the bikes in a specific parking as well.

This hostel is in a peaceful location, tucked away down a little lane. The rooms were comfortable and clean. Everything looked new. Bathrooms looked recently refurbished and the kitchen was stocked with everything you could possibly need. We stayed as a couple for two nights and hired out one of the rooms as a private room. There's not a lot to do in the immediate vicinity but this was a base from which to explore things further afield. We would definitely stay again and even bring a few friends too.
