Big modern hostel, cleverly designed with rooms stepped up the mountains slope. Comfortable and versatile building, with two separate lounges, a huge and well equipped kitchen, and a lovely dining area flooded by the evening sunshine. Even when it was full it didn't feel at all crowded. Excellent location at the junction of roads at the foot of Liathach, with...

An excellent hostel in spectacular scenery. The very friendly staff really take care of you and are more flexible in their approach than some hostels. The rooms are good and the washing and drying facilities are spacious for a large hostel. The kitchen looks newly refitted and well equipped. Rohan and Em make sensational cakes.

We had rang ahead to advise that we were running late having had a long day on An Teallach plus the drive down from Ullapool SYH. The location could not have been better and the buildings...

Had a great stay at the Torridon Youth Hostel. It really couldn't be in a better position for the Mountains sitting to the North. A stroll up the road got us to the start of Liathach and the descent was almost to the front door. In spite of this location advantage, there is no taking it easy from the staff....

Aside from a door that needs oiled beside the two-person private rooms, there was little to set this hostel apart from a budget hotel. Comfy single bed, reception that sold satisfying craft beers, and welcoming staff from Bingley. The views from the lounges aren't bad either.
