Liked: We had a unit of 14 beds which had a large kithcen and social area to ourselves . the space available was also better than other hostels we had stayed in and it was particularly quiet.

Disliked: There wasn't anything we particularly disliked but it would have maybe been better to have another bathroom or spearate showers as there was quite a queue in the morning with only 2 between 13 of us.

Liked: The location is beautiful. The hostel is homely and a great place to relax with your friends after the long trek up Ben nevis.

Disliked: Please put a note to let people know to bring towels, utensils etc as if you have never been to a hostel before would not know that.
