LIN FU thinks…

"It is located right at the foot of Ben Nevis which is great after a tired day of climbing the mountain. You can have a relaxed walk along the road and enjoy the good view of Ben Nevis in the evening.…"

Liked: Location at foot of Nevis is good. Staff were friendly and welcoming.

Disliked: Coach party of French teenagers invaded on Sunday night and made a lot of noise until midnight, started up again at 6. They appeared to be using the hostel as a cheap stopover. This is driving hikers away from the SYHA. Plumbing was extremely noisy. No bar and tuckshop was inadequate, although our lack of evening meal was poor planning on my part.

Liked: Nice, clean place in a beautiful surrounding.

Disliked: The showers on the first level were either freezing cold or burning hot, but then it turned out that the hostel had nice new showers downstairs. It would be great if they could have that niveau on all levels of the hostel.
