Liked: Great atmosphere, welcoming staff, clean and honest throughout. Location although rural, stunning. I would recommend a car, though it would not be essential. Huge garden and the staff were kind enough to let us a have BBQ whilst we stayed.

Disliked: Walls are very thin... Not a problem if you're a heavy sleeper, if you're a light sleeper, maybe pack a pair of earplugs, lest you want to hear everything being said by your neighbours. Aaaaand, the midges! but it was mid-July in Scotland, these were expected anywhere in Scotland and the staff did warn us to keep windows closed, etc. to minimise their annoyance.

Liked: In a really picturesque location. Looks lovely (even in the rain). Facilities are also very good and what I would expect from a youth hostel. Kitchen is larger than quite a few hostels I have stayed in which is a real benefi when the hostel is at capacity. Also staff are excellent. Our event didn't finish until 11:30 and we had no mobile reception until after midnight. The staff ensured we could still get into the hostel. Also we required jump leads in the morning to get our car started and go home. Nothing is a problem for them. I'd definately visit again.

Disliked: Nothing to dislike.

Liked: The hostel is located in a nice wooded area with a nearby pond and waterfall. It is great for people looking to get into the outdoors.

Disliked: This property is NOT accessible without a car. The owners were kind enough to give is a lift after a 30 minute bus ride from Fort William, but without a car this is definitely not a feasible option. We also happened to be the only ones staying there for the weekend, and decided to move into Fort William to be closer to transportation.

Liked: Love the location, the area around it has loads to offer with a lovely mountainous river worth exploring

Disliked: Only thing i would have to say is because its a wooden lodge you tend to hear everyone and everything around you.

Liked: Lovely getaway tucked away in the mountains. Great hostel and facilities (except wi-fi)

Disliked: The lack of a warm reception - our hosts have been in the business for a number of years which showed in the lack of enthusiasm and rushed introduction to the hostel. Non existent Wi-Fi - After reporting a problem with the internet, we were told to try elsewhere down the road and it was made very obvious that it was too much trouble for the hosts to try resolve the matter. We gave up waiting in the end and left. Such a shame to have such inhospitable hosts in the hospitality industry.

Liked: The location, while a little out of the way, was just incredible - looking out of the dorm window to see the mist rolling in over a forest-covered mountain, sunset fully in swing... Just mazing. And the hosts were very helpful - picking me up and dropping me off to the local train/bus stations. Loved it.

Disliked: Just make sure you bring dinner AND breakfast for the next morning... But the place is amazing. No dislikes : )
