Glen Nevis SYHA hostel is located at the foot of Britain's highest mountain Ben Nevis and the path to the summit starts almost from the front door.

All the rooms, private or shared have spectacular mountain views. The hostel offers a fully equipped self-catering kitchen with a good sized dining room for eating in or socializing. You can relax in a comfortable lounge, or keep in contact with friends and family with Internet access. WI-FI access is also available and sheets are included in the price.

The Glen Nevis hostel is also conveniently situated very close to the end of Scotland's most famous long distance walk the West Highland Way and only three miles from the start of the Great Glen Way. Whether for hiking, skiing, biking or simply touring, the surrounding area of Lochaber is simply stunning.

No lockers in rooms, but an nice place in front of Ben Nevis. Very bad reachability (1 bus per day and direction). Additionally, someone at the reception told me on saturday evening that there is a bus on sunday but there wasn't. Nice USB carge tree btw in dining room. I liked this hostel and will probably come back once

Auberge de grand passage, assez bruyante, située dans un cadre plutôt commun. Située très près d'une grande ville cette auberge accueille un public plus jeune. La chambre que nous occupions ne disposait que d'un vélux de toit non accessible, disposant d'une corde pour l'ouverture et nécessitant une perche pour la fermeture. Autrement dit aucune vue sur l'extérieur et une atmosphère rapidement étouffante. Seul intérêt, un lit double pour un couple.
