It would have been very helpful if we had been emailed information about how to get into the hostel (i.e. the door code) before we got there. when we arrived at 9.30pm in the dark last Thursday night we couldn't find a way in to the hostel. There were only 2 other people in the building at the time and it took ages for them to realise we were there trying to get in. Also when you rang them, as I wanted to know some information before I got there no-one ever answered the phone.

Location is superb but warning if you satnav, it takes you to a random private house on the other side of the glen. Warm rooms but not hot all night they click off around midnight so its cool to sleep which I loved only three channels on tv bbc1 bbc2 & babestation Never met the staff nobody came to collect any money from me loo clean fridge and utensil immaculate I couldn't find a mop of cloths when I spilt water on the floor 9.8 out of ten its great!!!!

We turned up late on a winter night to find the hostel open for us and wonderfully cosy. We were the only occupants that night. An excellent conversion from the old school buildings. We shall return for another stay. Thank you to Robert.

I was disappointed to find nobody there when I arrived, and to be tiol the warden was on Holiday even though I had booked to stay, I was lucky to locate the cleaner to tell me the door code so I could get in, it was very cold and no heating on, but there was hot water in the taps, next morning I tried to find who to pay but to no avail, so I left a cheque on the table with my booking slip, otherwise the hostel was very clean, and tidy and the beds were made and I enjoyed my stay

I'm really sorry about this. If you have not received a code for the door before you arrive, as we say clearly on the website, please, please contact us, as it means, for one reason or another your booking has not registered.

We really enjoyed our brief stay,the hostel is comfortable and homely and has every convenience. Beds are good,as are showers. The location is beautiful,rabbits abound. Can't think of a thing to improve the place - it's a delight.
