Excellent value for money!

My husband and I got a private room for both nights of our haggis adventures tour around the northern parts of Scotland. We were extremely impressed with all of the amenities available. The dinner and breakfast there is also amazing - good value for money. (Excellent spot to try some Haggis)...

The hostel is very well situated, close to the Loch. It has a nice garden, the common room is filled with books and comfy sofas, if you want you can even test your skills on the piano in the hall. The room was nice and the bathroom big and practical.
