    Perfect place to visit the Cairngorms and surrounding area. We had the cooked breakfast and found the rooms comfortable. We particularly enjoyed sharing stories with the hosts Rebecca and Andy and with other guests in the lounge. Highly recommend this very comfortable hostel.

    The bathrooms are shared, but there are several. Depending on where your rooms are, you may not be sharing with anyone else. I've stayed 3 times and have never had to queue for the bathroom.
