About Glen Nevis Youth Hostel

A five star VisitScotland accredited youth hostel, Glen Nevis offers guests hotel-like accommodation with private en-suite rooms and comfortable shared accommodation.

Facilities include a contemporary open-plan living space with log-burning stove and panoramic mountain views, free WiFi, secure under-bed storage, USB power sockets and bedside lighting for every bed. There’s also a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, drying room, laundry and secure bike store. The hostel has a ramped access from the car park and two accessible rooms with wet room facilities.

Guests can opt for a cooked or continental breakfast and a great selection of food and drink is available to purchase throughout the day. After a long day in the hills there’s nothing better than relaxing on the large deck with a local craft beer or glass of wine, savouring the spectacular mountain views.

Near the bustling town of Fort William, at the foot of Ben Nevis, the hostel is close to the end of the West Highland Way and within easy reach of the start of the Great Glen Way. It’s perfect for groups, families and individual travellers looking to explore the UK’s Outdoor Capital!

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

Accommodation Information

Here at Glen Nevis we have private rooms sleeping from 1-6 people and shared accommodation in rooms ranging from 8-16 people.

All our rooms, private or shared have spectacular mountain views and our youth hostel is undoubtedly the most scenically sited in the Lochaber area.

We cater for individual travellers from around the world, families, friends and groups throughout the year.

During winter there is also a bus service which departs each morning from the youth hostel to the Nevis Range in Torlundy. Here you can try your hand at skiing and snowboarding against the spectacular backdrop of Aonach Mor.

We are a fully licensed hostel and have been welcoming generations of hill walkers and thrill seekers to Fort William and surrounds since 1933, so when you book with us you can rest assured that we are committed to making your stay a memorable one.

Location Information

Located approximately 3 miles from the Fort William bus and rail stations, our youth hostel is nestled mid way up Glen Nevis, arguably one of Scotland’s most beautiful Glens. Having featured in the Harry Potter film series, Braveheart, Rob Roy and even the Highlander movies, you really don’t need to just take our word on this.

With Britain’s highest mountain literally right on the door step you will be hard pressed to find a youth hostel as well located.

Cancellation Policy

Customers can cancel their reservation free of charge up to 3 days before arrival. After this date, charges will be applied by the property up to the first nights cost of the reservation, unless otherwise stated in the property’s conditions. Deposits paid are non refundable.
