Customer review

19 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This was the first time I stayed in a dorm-type hostel and I was a little nervous, however, this hostel was wonderful! Everything was really clean, the staff was really friendly and we met some great people that we stayed with. The beds were really comfortable too and the hostel was really close to the trail head for Ben Nevis. I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely stay there again and recommend it to anyone looking for a good hostel!

Liked: The location is excellent, you can walk to the town centre or Morrisons in 5 minutes. It was a great place to meet people and the views a brilliant. There are great walks right on the doorstep and it's a 15 minute drive to the Nevis Range. You'll find yourself wishing you had longer.
