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

Posted 29 Sep 2018 on Hotels
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

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.

Nice, cosy hostel

Nice, cosy hostel. Location a bit suburban but good connections into Fort William and beyond. Great facilities for self catering and friendly staff. Only thing is, could have more.bathrooms. also, good breakfast (basic toast and cereal) but they should forget about the processed croissants. First because they're not fresh but also because they're each individually wrapped in plastic which is wasteful. Overall would recommend, and probably stay here again

Thank you for your excellent rating. Breakfast is optional at a price less than you would pay for a Costa or Starbucks. Being a hostel, you can also bring your own and cook your own if you wish. But we shall consider better quality croissants! All the best. :)

Basic, cheap and cheerful - in a good way

Cons: Timers in the showers to stop people taking too long in there
Location: Based a distance from Fort William in a village called Banavie - best to get transport here rather than walk.
Stayed here for one night night during a week in July Friendly staff, clean rooms, comfortable beds, quiet building, hot showers, good kitchen facilities

Good for a hostel

Posted 9 Oct 2015 on Hotels
Got in late and left early. Room for 8 but was off season so only myself in the room. First hostel I've stayed in and it was fine but I prefer the luxuries of a hotel. Even still not a bad place for a night.
