07 October 2009 Andrew would recommend this property

Liked: Good hostel, cozy, warm, and a fun and helpful staff. Honestly, there wasn't a lot of stuff to do in Fort William besides climbing Ben Nevis, but if that's why you're coming to Fort William, this is definitely a good hostel to base yourself in.

Disliked: Andrew left no negative feedback.

02 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

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!

21 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

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.
