I really like this hostel. This is my third visit. There is a private beach!Loch Ness is beautiful, truly stunning.

Inside the kitchen is huge and the communal space is large and open and has very cool decor. The atmosphere is chilled. Dorms are fine. Some are 2 and 4 bed which is good
. Insect screens on the windows so you can open them in the summer without being eaten by midges. Only reason I’ve not given it five stars is cause I’ve stayed at some really modern high spec hostels and Lochside is a bit more shabby chic.
