Disappointed by some (not all) members of staff. The welcome was great, perfectly friendly. In the morning, the staff were uncommunicative, not even a 'good morning'. Unusual from typically jovial youth hostel staff. Otherwise good overall experience.

Great hostel, staff are excellent and atmosphere is friendly and relaxed. Bathroom in main building is a little tired but clean and the showers are hot. Bar area is a great place to socialise and the beer selection is tremendous. We'll be back next time we're in Loch Ness area.
