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.
