Ben Nevis Views
Really great place. Amazing views and possibly the best youth hostel. We stayed 2 nights to explore the area. The path to Ben Nevis is opposite and we had a view of the mountain range from our room. Couldn't be better.

Great for Ben Nevis Hike
This hostel is a no frills stay with in a great location for anyone looking to hike Ben Nevis with the trail starting just the opposite side of the road. The bunk beds were clean and each level had it's own light and plugs.
