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.
