Applecross Hostel

Hostel Applecross

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

A friendly and welcoming hostel. Set next to the River Applecross and surrounded by mountains with views across Applecross Bay to Raasay and the Cuillin Ridge on Skye. A great base to explore everything the north west Highlands have to offer.

Sorry, we were disappointed with this hostel. Having just stayed at hostels in Durness and Ullapool we were hoping for something better. The place felt 'dead' and had no atmosphere. Felt like it lacked care and attention to detail. Room was okay but would have benefitted from shelves. Lights in women's toilets were strobing and stayed that way for the 3 nights we visited. Drying room out of order. Terrible design of shower areas. Nice lounge area. Could be so much better but needs investment.

We were more than impressed and catered for in our large cycling group at the Bealach Na Ba. The location is superb ,and for a Bunkhouse ,in a remote location its more than you can ask for. It looks as if ,alot of work is being done on the house, and it will only get better.NOt far to the Applecross in for a few beers as well.Big thank you from Fullarton Wheelers
