Great place to stay.

Reviewed on October 6, 2018

We found this place purely by chance. We had ridden from Applecross and were soaking wet so decided to go in the hostel instead of camping. We got a warm welcome and after a quick rundown of the facilities we went to the bunk room. Inside, everything was clean, dry and warm with comfortable beds and lockers for valuables. We walked up to the pub for food and a pint or three then strolled back and spent a couple of hours chatting with some German guests in the hostel. All in all a great place to stay and in a great location too. Thanks Dave W.
