Fort William Backpackers Reviews


I found it to be a good and affordable place to stay. The receptionist (Ryan) is cool and friendly, and at the same time he has a good idea about the surrounding places to visit around fort william. You have a good kitchen where you can make your own stuff and to add free tea and coffee. However, the wifi sucks. You cannot get access in your rooms. You need to come downstairs for accessing. Overall, it was very good except wifi.

I love this hostel

This is a really relaxed and friendly hostel. There is a kitchen and dining room with free tea/coffee/hot chocolate. The common area is a cosy little lounge room. It's about a 5 mintute walk from the train station and the main street.


Very nice staff, great place to meet people. Cozy and clean. Breakfast is great value for money and tea, hot chocolate and coffee are free.


Nice Place

Stayed at this place for just one night, they guy that runs it was very helpful and a really nice guy. The hostel is really just a big house so really easy to meet others staying there. Showers and toilets were fine and rooms were really clean.


MacBackpackers hostel equals excellent time. A small hostel run by very friendly people. It does seem to centre around the under-thirty crowd, but older people are welcome to stay there. It's a laid back hostel with a good attitude. The hostel was clean, the rooms were nice (single sex dorms) and small enough that you don't feel impersonal (six-bed dorms). The kitchen and lounge were great, cheap breakfast available. The kitchen lockout is not usually a problem (but I'm fairly sure that if you explained that you had to use it in the early morning they would not have a problem). Very helpful staff, there is plenty of information on things to do in the area (climb Ben Nevis). The bathrooms are excellent, and the showers were the closest thing to a shower at home that I was able to get while staying in hostels. I cannot recommend this hostel enough.

Actually I would give this hostel a 5 star rating, but they messed up with my booking for the second night, so we had to leave, which was not very nice!! The hostel is very cozy and has a laid-back atmosphere. In the evening everyone was sitting in the lounge, playing cards or chess, reading, talking or knitting. The kitchen is a little bit small, but well equipped. All in all, it's a cool hostel!


The staff was really helpful and friendly. The only thing I didn't like was their rule where you couldn't use the kitchen before 7am. I decided to climb Fort William at 5am (my train left at noon), and had I not broken that rule, I would have never made it on an empty stomach. Who could it possibly bother? The bedrooms are pretty far away from the kitchen.


Excellent! Excellent! This place is cleaner than a 5-star hotel, and the staff are just fabulous! They are cool people, and are always helpful. The hostel is very close to the train and bus station, just above downtown Fort William. It would be nice if people didn't smoke in the lounge, mostly because the guests are supposed to be sporting people, like climbers!!! Anyway, I highly recommend this place; I've been here twice already.
