Liked: -

Disliked: There was a unacceptable smell in the rooms. The statement of the staff member was, that this is caused by often rotating people in the room and their body smells. But in my opinion this is likely to hostels everywhere...so...no recommendations from ours side.

Liked: The staff were really helpful. There is a little living room where you can chill out for a while with a fire place. There are clean, nice and spacious showers and baths.

Disliked: It isn't really good located (it's better if you travel by car because everything is further than 10 min walking) and the kitchen is not well ventilated.

Liked: It's a backpackers hostel, but it's still quite clean and the self-catering accomodation are quite good ! The breakfast is also nice. The bed was comfortable and the lounge a nice room to rest a bit.

Disliked: The bathroom could have been cleaner, but it was far from disaster.

Liked: Staff was very very friendly. Nice rooms to get together and meet nice people.

Disliked: Far from Fort Williams: please right down the distance (in miles or in minutes) it takes in the bus ride, because we could think that we choose the wrong one, or we could think we could walk!!!

Liked: It was alright, however I was put in a mixed dorm, which turned out to be me (1 girl) with 7 guys in a room. If they are mixing the dorms, they really should make sure that there are at least 2 girls per room. It was not the most comfortable night I have spent in a hostel

Liked: It was very quiet in the hostel when I stayed (because it was out of season??) even though I saw quite a few numbers of backpackers in the town. If you are using public transport, it is not easy to get there, I suppose. On a sunny day, you can get a great view of Ben Nevis!
