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.

Plus: The view on the Ben Nevis, the noise of the river through the open window. Just crossing the bridge and up the path to the top. The big and clean kitchen, very convenient.I liked the shelf with what people left to share. The people staying in the hostel where nice too. Almost everyone was open for a chat. Down side: No private light by the bed
