Liked: The facilities were extremely well-kept- spotless and handsome looking. Ian, our host, was also very helpful and charming.

Disliked: It seemed inconvenient that it was closed for the day, but I was able to drop my bags off and return later to check in. Ian was kindly accomodating.

Liked: Convenient location near station. Facilities acceptable. breakfast was cheap & plentiful.

Disliked: Staff were friendly for most of visit until I discovered our train tickets were missing just before departure. this resulted in a frantic unpacking of rucksacks. The female warden helped look for the tickets for approx 30 seconds before infroming me that she really should charge us for checking out late (15 minutes- the other warden had informed me that check out was 10.30 ISH- it was 10.45). Extremely insensitive. Tickets were found in nearby community centre car park which we hadnt visited. Therefore unable to comment on security at hostel as I am unsure how this occured.

Thank you for your comments. Glad you found your tickets. Keep on Chasing the Wild Goose..!

Liked: It was very nice to come 'home' to friendly staff and a warm bed after hiking all day on Ben Nevis. Breakfast at £3 was excellent value. Very nice hostel. Thanks

Disliked: Wish I could stay longer
