Glencoe Hostel

Hostel Glencoe

Hostelling International

Welcome to our hostel

Set in one of Scotland’s most spectacular and historic glens, not far from Glencoe village, this alpine-style youth hostel offers a range of comfortable accommodation. Guests can choose from cosy solid wood panelled rooms, to larger family rooms and shared accommodation.

Guests can opt for continental breakfast or prepare their own in the hostel’s well-equipped, open plan kitchen. Other facilities include a spacious dining room, a small, cosy lounge and one of the best drying rooms in the Scottish Highlands! The hostel has on-site parking and secure bike store. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception and guests can relax in the evening with a Scottish craft beer or a glass of wine.

Glencoe Youth Hostel is the perfect base for walkers and climbers of all abilities - not just in summer, but all year round; perfect if you're going for a scramble in Coire Gabhail - the dramatic Lost Valley - or tackling Britain's finest ridge walk, the Aonach Eagach, which ends at the hostel.

Visit nearby Glencoe mountain resort for skiing and mountain biking or cycle the Sustrans path to Oban. Or simply relax and be inspired by the dramatic scenery and history of this famous glen.

Dogs are welcome at Glencoe, for a small fee, when booking a private room. Please notify us in advance to ensure that there’s a dog friendly room available.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

Auberge très bien située pour les randonnées. Propre. Lits confortables. Il manquerait 1 ou 2 douche s pour les filles. Petit déjeuner complet mais chef. Cuisine tout équipée. Salon petit mais cosy. Parking devant l’auberge. On recommande ++

Douches fortement salies par des voyageurs mais pas de passages réguliers de la part du personnel pour les remettre un minimum en état Chambres du bas sans vision sur l'extérieur du fait de fenêtres hautes et blanches Manque des places de parking Le site ne précise pas que les draps sont fournis
