Liked: The cleanliness of the dorms and of the hostel in general was good. It was calm so nice to relax

Disliked: The atmosphere was not great, the common room is located in the middle of the hostel leaving it without any windows.. The kitchen was too small for the capacity of the hostel. Another annoying things is to have to give two extra pounds for lockers even though you have your own padlock. Last thing, the owner left even though some people were expected after 11pm, leaving the occupants to have to manage if they should let them in or not for the night or not.

The property's response is

Thank for your review. We're sorry your stay wasn't all good for you. We've refurbished all our bedrooms with brand new showers, new carpets and some new sofas, but moving the lounge from the centre to the outside of the building was a problem, so we left it where it is ;)

Liked: Nice and communicative common area!

Disliked: You need a car or you have to take the train that runs from near the hostel to get to the Fort William attractions (Ben Nevis especially) in decent time.

Liked: It was a pretty standard hostel; there's a couple of common rooms for watching tv or just chatting. The staff is very friendly.

Disliked: It's a bit outside of city center, a bit of a walk or a pricey taxi ride. I believe there was one or two buses that made it out that way.
