A group of 8 of us stayed - we were drenched and downtrodden trampers who arrived with 2 cars which were both playing up. The staff at Bothy's couldn't have been more helpful if they tried. Especially the lovely Scottish man who very patiently helped me fix the issue with the lock on my car. The hostel was extremely clean and warm, and well located. I would absolutely recommend this hostel and will stay here again.

The heater in the room was nice, the kitchen included an oven and freezer, the lounge with tv out front was cozy, tea and coffee provided, staff were sociable, and the double bed was cozy. The location was convenient as there was enough parking and we could easily walk into town or spend time on the lakefront. The shower had great heat and water pressure, loved the towels. I was glad there weren’t too many people staying while we were there as there are lots of doors- which made things loud- and I could have done with cleaner looking sheets, but overall thanks for the stay.
