Liked: Cant really complain for £13.50 a night, rooms/bed sheets were clean, but kitchen was a bit grubby, wouldnt want to cook in it. Showers were terrible, warm but not a lot of water! Looks a bit rundown, but good atmosphere, pretty chilled out and very friendly staff so would stay again, still way better than camping in the rain!

Liked: This hostel is a little bit run down and the atmosphere is quite chaotic, but obviously this might belong to this hostel. The guy at the reception is very nice and helpful and answering you any question and it could be as sillz as possible. All in all it's value the money you'll spend there.

Liked: Great and chilled out.. exactly what you want in Fort William. In close proximity to most of the big hikes. Also the staff were excellent, however the check in times were a bit bizarre, however they let you leave your bags there until check in time.
