We stayed here while walking the Great Glen way. It was closer to the Way than the few B&B's in the area. Cost was 45 pounds for a private double room. Men's and Women's Showers and toilet are down the hall. Room had a bunk bed (double on the bottom), 1 soft chair and 2 straight chairs. They sell a...

We stayed here during our trip to kayak local rivers. The hostel is in a great position for hikers, bikers, skiing and water based sports. The kitchen has everything you need and the small lounge extremely comfy. There is lots of hot water and rooms/bedding etc are super clean. The reception has a small well stalked shop.

There's a no-frills charm about the Great Glen hostel. The beds were comfy, the kitchen plenty big enough with utensils and working appliances. Someone walked in on me when I was in the shower (they don't lock or anything) but that isn't the hostel's fault, even if I am slightly mentally scarred. The hostel was fairly priced for what they...

We were fairly unorganised on our trip to Scotland. After climbing Ben Nevis we booked this hostel online and headed there. Set in a beautiful scene with a well stocked pantry of food you can buy. Clean accommodation and efficient service. One of the showers didn't work but that want a problem as there were plenty more. I would definitely...

Stayed at this hostel for two nights with a couple of my friends on a road trip of the Highlands. It was really good, the staff were friendly and the facilities clean! We stayed in a six bed female dorm and met some lovely people whilst we were there. Ideally situated for Fort William, Loch Ness, Inverness, the Cairngorms and...

Awesome! No fuss, no hustle, just what One would expect. Wonderful staff, great indoors. Plenty to do nearby. You will not be disappointed that is certain. It's quiet spacious as for a hostel I must say. One of the best Hostels I stayed in. Thank You.

The hostel was basic but fine. They had a large selection of food to buy at reception. But walking the Great Glen way breakfast would have been great. Unfortunately nothing else around. But do take the extra effort to go to the Eagles Barge.

Managed to spend a night on this hostel. Everything was perfect (bathroom, kitchen, common room, and wifi) except our room was little bit cold eventough we know that the heather was already working. Overall decent hostel with proper facilities, a recommended hostel when you are visiting scottish highlands and surrounding areas.

Can't believe that we can find this kind of hostel in this area! Everything is satisfying. The bedroom, washroom, common room, even the kitchen are really nice. We stayed in this hostel for one night and it is really comfortable for us.
