Backpacking / gap year

23 August 2010

Liked: Near of Ben Nevis and other mountains if you want to make hikking.

Disliked: We could'nt rest there. Some of the other costumers in our room were very loudly in the night with any respect for the others. The location of the hostel is no so far of the centre of the village but is in a big pendant and in the middle of a curve that prevents the people going by car to see the hostel up to is too later to go in. The street is one way without possibility to go back reverse.

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!
