This is a fantastic, recently refurbished family-owned and personally managed Backpackers Hostel near Ben Nevis. Located away from the city centre, with easy access to the Caledonian Canal, it’s great accommodation for walkers, climbers, backpackers and families. Enjoy a break to the Scottish Highlands. Be inspired by fantastic views of Ben Nevis. Follow in the footsteps of Harry Potter and board the ‘Hogwarts Express’, or take a walk along the banks of the canal and Neptune's Staircase. Above all, share your experiences with like-minded travelers. Quality hostel accommodation sleeping 42. Meals available nearby, with kitchen facilities in-house. Wi-fi is FREE and Continental Breakfast is available. We’re not in the centre of town, but we love it.
