Staff are wonderfully welcoming . The hostel is in a stunning location with unforgettable access and views from Lochcarron . The kitchen is brilliant . I loved my stay. The walk to Sand is challenging but accessible to most and offers a stunning view of the cove . Totally recommend it to all YHA travellers .

Decent hostel in a beautiful setting. Bed steads are not very comfortable but I can understand the economic reason for using them. The 'it's not a dishwasher its a sterilizer' in the kitchen is weird. No other hostel I have ever been to uses such a device, it look highly energy inefficient?

Absolutely beautiful setting. I have only one complaint (that might not bother others). My room was above the kitchen and i could hear the extractor or something whirring all night. Otherwise it would have been silent. Clean and great wash service. I would dedinitely recommend

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.
