Spent 2 nights staying at the Hostel as part of a group of 7. We were working on the path in Glen Nevis so comfy beds and nice hot showers were very welcome! Very friendly staff, great facilities and good to see it so busy in February.

Stayed for five days. It was great. Friendly helpful staff, great facilities, and stunning location. Can't wait to return in the summer. The place was lively but never felt crowded - plenty of space for everybody.
