4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Good enough. No drying room though.

As hostels go, it was fine. Plenty of space, a decent kitchen and dining area separate from a seating area. 20mins bus ride from town or £8.40 in a taxi isn’t ideal nor is the lack of a drying room. This last one would think a prerequisite given the location and clientele but apparently not.

  • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Apart from one obnoxious fellow hosteller, the stay was superb. Found the electronic door locks a bit tricky but was glad to find a secure bike shed was available. I now know that Banavie Railway Station is only about one quarter of a mile from the hostel instead of cycling the 3.6 miles from Fort William Railway Station so that!s how I’ll get there next time.

    Nice hostel

    Nice stay. The staff were very friendly. Seems like a relatively small lounge and dining space for the amount of guests. But overall the hostel was very nice and comfortable

    • Disliked: Property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    It's an ok hostel, very close to Neptune's staircase. A little bit isolated if you don't have a car. There is a bus stop at the end of the road, but the train isn't very frequent. Staff were all very helpful and friendly, but the facilities were a tad lacking. There were only three toilets and three showers for all seven or eight rooms. There was only one charging point in the room and only one overhead light. Duvet inners and mattresses protectors had seen better days. On the bright side there were sinks in the room and the wifi signal was good.
