01 June 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Location. Ample parking. regular police patrol. Only thing I did not like was the people from another party who decided to use the shared living room for two of their party to use as a bedroom. This meant that we coud not use the living room or table. Whoever agreed to let them stay like this was not considering the needs of the others.

Michael Brown

17 April 2008 Michael would recommend this property

Liked: Great location right on the waterfront with the Nevis in the background. You would want a car to get here as it is a long walk to ft william but only a 5min drive. Really coolcharacter hostel and helpful staff!!! Only bad thing was the shower which was really low pressure and impossible to control the temp properly.
