The Experience

We are a small independent hostel in the stunning Loch Ness region of the Scottish Highlands. We have 45 beds, a great bar with over 50 Scottish beers, and a really friendly atmosphere. We LOVE having volunteers come and work with us, and being part of our hostel family for a few weeks or months, and our online reviews demonstrate just how important the team is to our reputation. But they all seem to love being here too, so we're thrilled!

Learning & Fun




Nikki and Patrick are amazing hosts. They always take care of you, explain you every detail about the job. They're really patient.
Because of personal things I had to leave early, but it's a really good place.
If you're always looking for party this is not the place for you.
The tasks are easy. I just experienced some troubles because of the scottish accent of the people :'D, but besides that everything, it's really fair.
They are a lovely family and I would like to go back again when my problems get solved.
Thank you for everything :)!




This was my first experience with Worldpackers and i couldn't ask for a better one!!!

Drumanadrochit is magical. beautiful landscape everywhere you look. Its a small village but you will find out that's lots of things to do if you like outdoors activities.

Nikki and Patrick are wonderful, and very welcoming, and they will help with everyhting they can to allow you to get to know Scotland. i don't have enough words to thank them for this opportunity .

the hostel is great and i felt like home as soon as i arrived. made some good friends there and had such an amazing time. :)




My experience at Loch Ness Backpackers Logde has been very positive. Nikki and Patrick have treated me very well, helping me at all times to make me feel comfortable. I have enjoyed good times with my colleagues, at dinners, in pub outings and in the river walks.

My tasks in the hostel have been simple and concrete. The hostel run very well and there is relaxing atmosphere.

Drumnadrochit is a spectacular town. I love its landscape and and see nature in its purest state. Nearby is the city of Inverness where there are many shops and restaurant.








Mi estancia fue muy buena me í como en casa y los turnos estan bien distribuidos con tareas
específicas , mi estancia fue por dos meses y sin duda lo disfrute bastante.
Gracias Nikki & Patrik por la oportunidad, estoy agradecida y por supuesto que recomiendo ampliamente al anfitrión.
Drumnadrochit es una zona muy tranquila, la gente es muy amable en las calles, si amas la naturaleza y el hiking te va a encantar, si amas la fiesta y las grandes ciudades este lugar no espara ti.
En el bar del hostal puedes encontrar una colección maravillosa de cervezas escocesas y whisky.
