My husband was horrified when he saw the hostel, or perhaps a little guilty because he would be staying in an expensive hotel that night. The welcome we received was friendly.The room was compact and hot but that was well sorted after we opened the windows up a little bit. Beds were clean and comfortable comfortable, very to have easy...

This is a great wee hostel, part of the Centre 81 community centre in Garelochead. It really feels like you are staying in an important part of the village community. The hostel itself is spotless, warm and comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped, and coffee, tea, milk, bread etc are included in the price. The staff are great, friendly and...

A friend and I stayed here for one night while walking the three lochs way. We couldn't have asked for better accomodation for the night. We were slightly later than expected and a member of staff phoned to check our progress and waited patiently until we arrived nearly an hour late! He was understanding and polite. The hostel was warm...

This certainly wasn't my best experience of staying at a hostel. There was 5 of us in a room. Some of the duvet covers were stained. The bathrooms weren't very clean, The shower trays over flowed as the drains were clogged with hair. It was pretty poor all round. Wasn't accurately advertised. Was made to believe by the description that...

Clean rooms, fresh bed linen and friendly staff. We arrived quite late but there were no problems checking in. Liked the very light but good breakfast (toast, jam, coffee/tea). We were happy with our stay and got nothing to complain about! :)

My friends and I had already booked the hostel and agreed to be there at 18.00 hours. After walking all the day, we arrived there on time but there was no one in the reception and the hostel was all closed. Although we called all numbers we had, no one answered. Despite of that, the structure of the hostel is...

We would like to offer our sincere apologies for the fact that you had difficulties accessing the hostel when you arrived. As requested I believe you phoned the contact number for a member of staff to be in attendance on your arrival but for some reason your calls did not reach their mobile..

Friendly and helpful staff. Very clean, newly refurbished. Easy parking. We used as a base to drive around Loch Lomond, Loch Katerin, Gareloch, near Helensburgh. Initially booked for one night but stayed eight. Husband's first experience of hosteling, obviously impressed him.
