Liked: It is nearby the train station, about only 5-10 minutes walk. My train was delayed that night and the staff is nice and kindly waiting for me till 12pm. Although the room is smaller than I thought, it is a cosy place to live in and the price is good.

Disliked: Not yet found. Maybe the bed is a bit small? since I am a bit tall :p

Customer review

As a family with children

Family Holiday

23 July 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Room was clean and tidy with a useful chair. Communal kitchen and TV room were also clean and tidy with helpful information about facilities available and responsibilities for keeping place clean and welcoming. Communal shower/toilet was fine. Staff on arrival were polite and pointed out that card payment would be subject to a fee, so I paid cash.

Disliked: I needed to refreeze the freezer gel for my cool bag, but there was only a fridge in the communal kitchen. Also, two chairs would have been good in the dorm room, but it was too small to fit more than one comfortably.

Liked: The hostel is a friendly place with really nice people working there. The location is great, close to the train station and practically in the centre of Fort William. The price is very reasonable. I would stay at the hostel again, if choosing accommodation for a short stay.

Disliked: Actually, the hostel was more or less, what I expected from this kind of accommodation. Just the showers could be modernized - the air condition wasn't the best in there. Also places, where to put clothes and personal things - e. g. more hooks in the bathroom and shelves in the rooms would be useful.

Liked: -

Disliked: Cramped room with minimal furnishing (other than beds there was a single chair and some coat hooks). Wireless Internet didn't work all day and the front desk insisted there was nothing wrong with it- it finally worked halfway through the next day. The lounge is dark and ugly. Washroom/shower facilities were minimal.

Liked: Cute tartan bedsheets, close to the train station, good kitchen facilties.

Disliked: More like a hotel than a hostel, so not much of a super welcoming or hostel community vibe (except the kitchen and lounge maybe).

Liked: the location

Disliked: I was very dissatisfied when one of the staff members made me leave the lounge room at 12pm (her argument was that the check-out is at 10am and I am no longer allowed to be on the hostel's property!) even though it was pouring rain and wind outside, and I had several hours before my bus. I've never experienced such awful treatment before and I would never recommend such hostel to others.
