Customer review

15 June 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel stands in the middle of the hill. That gives you about ten minutes walk up the hill with your travelling baggae from the Fort William station, if you like it, or not. But the light side is, you can get a great view of lake and mountains from your room. Don't miss Ben Nevis and Neptune's Staircase.

Kristian Adamson

17 March 2008 Kristian would recommend this property

Liked: Nice position overlooking the town. A small and friendly hostel with only a few rooms. Nice common room with open fire and bay windows looking out over the town and highlands.Note: This hostel has low security. The room doors do not lock, no key is required to get into the front door, and there are no lockers in the rooms. But this wasn't frightening for us because of the small number of guests.
