Liked: Its location is perfect for visiting anywhere in the highlands and even more so for those who are climbing Ben Nevis. Kitchen facilities were pretty good too, lots of utensils. when I thought I had lost the key, the staff were very understanding- but the key was eventually found! nonetheless, they were very nice about it.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

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).
