We really appreciated our recent stay at Chase the Wild Goose. We had just completed the Caledonian Canal Canoe trail and it was a perfect place for us to stay. It was warm and welcoming, with great facilities for storing all our kit. The showers were excellent and the beds comfortable. We also appreciated our considerate room companions.

Just stayed here overnight in between travels, but found it really sweet and simple. the gal working at the desk was very helpful and the hostel was in a great place - food and transport was just a little bit away, and also it was just a very nice place to walk about.

The hostel was okay, although it took us 50 mins by walk to reach it. It would not be a problem if on the airbnb headline wasn't written 'hostel in fort william'; it is indeed in Banavie and this disappointed me , because we arrived late in the afternoon and there were no more trains and we had to walk,...

Thank you for your review. Banavie is indeed on the edge of the town of Fort William. It's 2 miles by direct walking route from the town centre following the Great Glen Way over the soldiers' bridge and through Caol, a very pleasant walk taking in woodland and shore. Banavie itself offers amazing views of Ben Nevis. Location maps are...

The hostel staff were delightfully polite and made me feel very welcome. The hostel itself is just outside Fort William and only a short drive away. The kitchen and dining rooms were spotless. My only gripe would be the noise level. I had two poor nights sleep due to people coming and going into the room during the night. It...

Many thanks for your comments. It's rare in our hostel, but occasionally we do get some individuals staying who are intent on doing their 'own thing' with apparently scant regard for others' wellbeing. Strangely, the same noisy individuals gave the hostel a 5-star rating on another site... We do aim to offer a peaceful night so we will see what...

Cute wee hostel with the fanciest showers I've ever seen in a hostel. Not too far from fort William (15min bike ride) and with a she'd in the back where we were able to lock our bikes away for the night. Would come again!

Great hostel to accommodate school/club groups, just outside of Fort William with play park nearby and plenty space outside and a good choice of board games for inside if weather not great and night entertainment, this hostel is ideal for groups as easy access into Fort William and great selection of outdoor activities. Rooms were basic but adequate with plenty...
