Very friendly and helpful staff. Pretty traditional hostel which is great. If you're undertaking the Ben Nevis hike via the Mountain Track (MT), this IS the place to stay. A connecting track (linking to the MT) is located immediately outside the hostel. Excellent location generally, though a little detached from Fort William. One negative like all remote locations is poor mobile phone signal. If you're a mobile-phone obsessed freak, it may be a problem. If you're old school, then no problem!

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

we think the tap in the bathroom runs too fast, too wasteful.
