I will be complaining that the window was broken open. Hostel was on A82. I heard every vehicle go by and got very little sleep. Also strong damp smell.

High Standard Hostel
Due to Covid-19, no staff on site but information all sent via email on how to check in & out. With a contact number on the front door if needed to get hold of anybody. The hostel as a public Laundrette in the car park which was useful. My room had a TV a suprise for a hostel but unfortunately it was not tuned in.
