A very friendly Youth Hostel, this was my first experience in a long time, girl on reception helped out and explained the concept. There were a good crowd of people staying and the atmosphere was really good, everyone helping each other.
Re-living our youth in this 'first time visit' to Glencoe Youth Hostel exceeded our expectations and was made all the nicer by Thomas's warm and cordial welcome. It is fabulously located in a beautiful area. Danke Thomas ...
Quiet location and very handy for shops, pubs and great mountains.
An amazing stay at an awesome hostel. Staff were great, lots of advice on where to go, where to eat. Definitely one to return to as there are so many mountains to climb.
Pleased to find that this year we got a really good pint at the Clachaig Inn. Hasn't been the case in recent years.
