    5/5 Excellent

    Very conveniently located near multiple hiking routes, and right in front of the bus stop from/to Aviemore. Very clean and comfortable, and the receptionist was very helpful and friendly!

    Staff v helpful & friendly. Great having the flexibility to buy breakfast or an evening meal.

    5/5 Excellent


    Perfect stay in the hostel. Clean and tidy. Kitchen facilities are good for cooking and also the dinner was served in a reasonable price. The pub near to the hostel had live music and cheap drinks. All activities near to the hostel. Wifi and charging mobile phones were the negatives. Atleast one charging port in the rooms would have been helpful.
