Had an absolutely fantastic stay this weekend 2 nights. Rooms spotless, hospitality faultless. Food and drink first class. I would like to say a big thanks to the Staff of this hostel who were extremely helpful and welcoming to our group. They went above and beyond to ensure we had a great stay. A BIG THANKS! Also would like to say thanks for checking in with us and caring about our safety after a long day on the hill! I can’t recommend this hostel enough and will definitely be back!!!

We stayed here the night before doing the 3 peak challenge. The hostel is modern, the kitchen is brand new and fully equipped inc huge fridges and ovens! Perfectly located at the foot of Ben Nevis, the trail literally starts outside. Spacious seating/dining area. Check in was easy, we were in 8 bed dorm - beds are solid although being 6’7” they were too short for me and because solid wood there was no holes to stick my feet through. The room got very very hot in the night and we had window open, couldn’t see if there was a controllable radiator anywhere as was dark. It was annoying having to strip the bed sheets at 4am and I’m sure our room mates didn’t appreciate it much. Big Morrison’s a couple of miles down the road in fort William for food/supplies.

I’m not used to youth hostels so I was somewhat apprehensive about what to expect, but wow, what a fantastic place.
I gather it has been recently refurbished and it was stunning. Obviously, amazing views but clean, very comfortable beds (and I was in the top bunk), warm, great cooking facilities and friendly, efficient staff.
I’d definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the Glen Nevis for four days, absolutely brilliant! And very convenient if you are in Fort William to climb Ben Nevis!
Clean, fresh, and spacious and welcoming is the best way to describe the new revamped Glen Nevis Hostel, Situated right in the middle of and surrounded by sheer beauty! .
Friendly and helpful staff through the day and always someone at the desk in the evenings should you need anything.
Clean bathrooms, showers and toilets. Spacious communal Kitchen with plenty of fridge/freezer space for your own food.
Everything is there for you to use and they have a cleaning service should you need to clean your clothes.
Lovely walks to be had in the surrounding areas and a small restaurant/pub near by (3mins walking distance from The Glen Nevis).
Right opposite the Glen Nevis is the bridge and river which you cross to begin the Ben Nevis trail (not for the faint hearted and you will need a sense of humour).
They do provide (at an extra charge) maps, repellent, packed lunches, varied beverages.
All in all they are extremely organised and proficient and I would definitely go back and definitely recommend it to other hard core hikers.
I had a brilliant time on my solo trek to Fort William/Ben Nevis and even if you are not a mountain climber there is so much wildlife and scenery and other activities taking place that you would not be short of anything to do or see!
Great place to stay :)

The hostel was recently renovated which means that everything in it is brand new and very nice. Our room (for 4 people) had its own bathroom. The kitchen was amazing, big and well-equipped. It is a perfect place for someone who wants to go hiking up to Ben Nevis as it is literally only across a river. I only lacked a common room or a place where I could relax with a book.
