Great Stay

Reviewed on October 9, 2017

I joined a local tour and stayed in this hostel. It's located in a small town and easy to access to restuarant & market. There's a pub which held different theme in different night. Highly recommend.

Great location and value for cycling NCN78. The only problem was the size of the drying room which was very small.

2 Days at Fort Augustus

Reviewed on October 1, 2017

We stayed 2 nights in this hostel. We had a private room with our own bathroom but the room was very poorly soundproofed. At the time there were so much people so it was not so easy to get a place in the diningroom at breakfasttime or in the evening. Cooked food is avalible thats nice. And there is also a bar.
