Welcome to our hostel

We're pleased to announce that Glen Nevis Youth Hostel has reopened after major refurbishment works, and it's looking better than ever!
The new-look hostel, just outside Fort William, is located at the foot of the UK's highest mountain Ben Nevis, and is surrounded by spectacular scenery. Directly across the road from Glen Nevis is a path that leads you directly up to the mightiest Munro.
The refurbished hostel offers a wide range of high quality shared accommodation and private en-suite rooms. New facilities include a contemporary open-plan living space with a log burning stove for the winter months, a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, drying room, laundry and secure bike storage.
Full catering is available for groups and cooked or continental breakfasts for all guests who prefer to take the hassle out of preparing for a long day on the hills. With a great selection of local craft beers and wines on sale, you should still find time to relax outside after a hard day's exploring.
Glen Nevis hostel is perfect for groups, families and individual travellers. Want to stay? Check availability now!

One of the best I have stayed at. The location is perfect for hiking Ben Nevis, and the river flowing outside the dorm window sounds great! Hear it's going to be renovated, hope it doesn't lose its vintage lodge appeal. Staff was excellent. Stayed in September 2017, can't wait to get back.

Le groupe scout a été beaucoup trop bruyant dans la salle à manger le staff aurait du contrôler et intervenir. La chambre qui jouxte la cuisine du staff bénéficie du bruit des frigos ce qui n'est pas très agréable.

Pas de chauffage malgré les demandes de plusieurs voyagetus, un grand froid dans les chambres et la grande humidité Cuisines pas assez grandes surtout avec la présence de grands groupes Auberge trop éloignées du centre Très bruyante du fait d'un plancher qui secoue et résonne Sanitaires et chambres vétustes

There were a lot of beds in the dorm, but it did not feel cramped. The helpfulness on the reception desk was outstanding.

Eine Steckdose müsste im Zimmer sein. Die Lage der JH hat mir gefallen.
