Reviewed 24 April 2011

The Hostel is quite basic, but extremely clean and well-run, with friendly and helpful staff.
We started off in a 'family room' which was extremely small and quite dark, with two sets of single bunks, which wasn't ideal really as we hoped to get a double bed and bunks for the kids. But after glimpsing another room that had a much brighter, big window and a double bunk we asked to move, as we were staying a whole week. They moved us upstairs to a front room with an amazing view, a double bunk and two single bunks, loads of space - but this one had no sink. (None of the rooms are en-suite). However, it was all so clean, with amazing mountain views, and the staff were so nice, that it didn;t really matter in the end.
The area is incredible beautifull with loads to do right from the doorstep - we climbed two mountains, rowed canoes, mountain-biked, and wandered round lochs, and beside burns. So peaceful and unspoilt.
Aviemore is a sweet town with plenty of facilities, and Loch Morlich right opposite the Lodge is stunning.

Excellent hostel, very friendly and clean. Could imagine it gets crowded at peak times but was nice and quiet when I was there. Excellent location for all outdoor activities and friendly village of Aviemore a 10 min drive away.

Check out the cafe/shop at the bottom of the drive that has a mid-tree view of red squirrels and various species of birds only 6ft away.

Will visit again.
