Reviewed 1 July 2014

Lovely part of Scotland. Very friendly staff and very obliging. A perfect place to stop off after touring and better value than nearby Aviemore. Would go again and stay with this company. Will be back. Took dinner here too - recommend bar menu - very quick service, nice staff and dining room

Room Tip: See deer at dusk - every where

Excellent hostel. We 3 friends on a walking holiday shared a great room complete with fridge, kettle and basin, and the hostel also has a well equipped kitchen for shared use. Ideal for a walking holiday, very friendly and helpful, comfortable, well-located. Highly recommend, would definitely go back.

Fantastic hostel, stayed with friends while climbing in the cairngorms. The hostel is small and cosy with excellent facilities. The hosts were warm and friendly and very welcoming. I would recommend this hostel to anyone. Newtonmore is quiet and has limited facilities which suited us just fine.

I stayed with my son and daughter (12 and 14) during a 4 day cycle trip from Ayrshire to Nethy Bridge. This was the most enjoyable night of our trip, we had great company, the hostel is cycle friendly with its facilities and history and very comfortable. Future trips will involve more hostels and fewer guest houses and a return to Newtonmore is a certainty.

My second visit to this great hostel. First was when doing the East Highland Way last year - the welcome & facilities outstanding - great showers & drying room - & you don't have to share room with strangers either - fantastic! Sue & Neil helpful with advice & whole experience positive. I'll be going back again...

5 of us visited for 3 days and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Neil was a very welcoming host and pointed us in the direction of the local Wildcat Trail. The showers at the end of the walk were very welcoming and just lounging in front of the log fire was bliss. The facilities are more than the 3 stars awarded and cannot be faulted in any way. Everything you could possibly want is available for a quiet and relaxing time. We don't usually stay in the one place twice but will certainly making an exception where the Newtonmore Hostel is concerned.

For my stag do a group of 10 of us cycled from Edinburgh to Inverness and one of our stop offs was at the Newtonmore Hostel.

It was absolutely perfect for our needs. Neil, the host, was great, very welcoming and gave us a place to store our bikes safely over night.

The accommodation itself was perfect. The bunk bed rooms were clean, tidy and the beds were comfortable too. Just what you needed after a long day's cycling. The hostel had a dry room for wet kit, great hot showers and a large living room space too. The log burning stove was a massive bonus and a great place for everyone to dry off and enjoy a post cycle-beer. The kitchen had all the facilities and equipment needed to cook breakfast (and other meals) in the morning.

In short, it was the perfect stop off place for a group and I would recommend it to any groups looking for a stop off or a few days in Newtonmore!
