Fort William Backpackers is a small, fun, friendly and relaxed hostel nestled on the hillside above the Outdoor capital of the UK. Our hostel is a beautiful converted mansion house and has many original features such as our cozy lounge with a real coal fire. We also have a lovely big garden with panoramic views of the surrounding lochs and glens, a large BBQ and a great outdoor fire pit. We have 40 beds and need help all year round to make sure the hostel is always nice and clean and welcoming to our guests. Fort William is a great town for people with a thirst for adventure and boasts some of the best walking, climbing, cycling, kayaking and snowboarding in the country. The town itself has everything you will need and is only a 5 min walk from the hostel ... close to rail and bus stations, good supermarkets, lots of restaurants, shops and most importantly ...great pubs! Due to our location, our guests tend to be `outdoor freaks` who have come to tackle Ben Nevis, (The UK`s highest mountain and it`s only a mile away from the hostel), to walk the The West Highland Way or The Great Glen Way. To climb in our dramatic surrounding mountains and kayak down our rivers. Cyclist bike for miles and miles and maybe even have a go on the World Championship Downhill track at the Nevis Range. Whatever our guests do it usually ends up with them getting muddy and tired so customer service is extremely important. Our hostel has everything our guests need after a hard days exploring! Now we just need YOU!!!
