We made a block booking for a nearby event. Everyone who stayed commented on how nice the hostel was.

We appreciate your taking the time to post a review. It’s good to hear that you had positive feedback from the group members who stayed with us. We hope that the annual gathering was a success.

First class hostel on every level. Helen and Gregor are welcoming and knowledgeable hosts and they provided valuable guidance when the plans for our walking club had to be changed. The hostel is spotlessly clean, warm, well equipped, spacious and comfortable, a few people in our group commented that it was better than some hotels! Muddy boots and wet walking gear are well catered for in a big drying room. The village is a short walk away and there are both short and longer walks straight from the hostel door. This was a real find and we will be back.

A proper hostel, great that they are still catering for individual travellers as a hostel should. Well equipped kitchen, extremely clean, good storage for bicycles, what more does one need? Well worth a visit

Thanks so much for the positive feedback. As a result of the pandemic we have moved from two dorm rooms to one but we remain committed to running the business as a hostel. We appreciate your coming to stay with us again and hope to see you again next year on another bike tour.

Helen and Trevor are friendly and informative and nothing is too much trouble. The hostel is very well appointed and clean.

Tips for other travellers
Good location for walking, cycling and kayaking, as well as a base for touring around the Great Glen and Lochaber. Excellent drying room.

Thanks for the top review but who is Trevor? Helen and Gregor were happy to see you again. We’ll forgive the typo since you have been so complimentary!
