    Thank you for your review. We agree, ‘plaster in the shower’ is pretty grim. This is sometimes the nature of shared accommodation. It’s disgusting, like people leaving litter in your garden, but staff do check regularly for such things.

    Hostel is overall alright. The bathrooms have been modernised. Location is ok if you have transport. There is a hotel near-by where you can eat, or you can use the kitchen facilities. The bedrooms are spacious enough.

    Fantastic place.everyone was friendly and breakfast was super organised. The Great Glen Way was just over the lock gates where we started the walk. There was also a nice hotel that was serving bar meals and also had a restaurant overlooking Neptunes Staircase.
