City break

Liked: the other travelers were cool and the beds were nice. also great kitchen

Disliked: I did not like that it was expensive and seemed like they were trying to rip me off. They charged 2 quid for a towel and no free wifi? also no outlets in the rooms which was a bummer. Also breakfast was a ripoff. The whole thing seemed like a scam.

Liked: 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. Also, the staff there are friendly and helpful.

Disliked: There is no plug in the room and only a few in the corridor. The name of the hostel is actually 'Glen Nevis Youth Hostel' which confused me a bit.

Liked: Good location right next to Ben Nevis, would take you about 20 minutes to walk into Fort William. Good kitchen facilities for self catering.

Disliked: No power socket in private room, internet £3 a hour for wifi. As w ith all YHA hostels the atmosphere and character of the hostel is bland and dated.
