Liked: Really helpfull and friendly stuff, gave me advise for further destinations in Scotland. Free Wifi. Good location.

Disliked: I was in a really small room with up to 5 people, that was ok but the heating was so hot that it was bad for a good night and you couldn't open the windows properly. I guess the other rooms are way better. The fridge was so full that you could hardly put anything in there. But that was in all hostels of Macpackers, don't know why.

Liked: Andy the manager was friendly without being invasive, very knowledgeable about the local area. Helpful with weather forecast. Helpful to a lonely chap on his own.

Disliked: only two toilets for all the guests, sometimes a queue. Some of the guests were less than clean in the bathroom...
