I stayed here for one night during June 2015. We arrived late at night and left early in the morning. I was only there for about 10 hours. Despite this, my stay was awful. I felt the toilet across from us was disgusting. I have never smelt anything so awful. It was a smell which I believe had been allowed... More

This hostel is located quite close to the main road running through Aviemore yet away from it on a side street, so it manages it be both central and secluded. It is not characterful in any way but neither is it clinically fresh and it's surrounded by beautiful parkland where I spotted red squirrel. Staff come across as the disciplinarian... More

Lovely staff; everyone super-welcoming, friendly and helpful. Great to have a kitchen to cook in. Go to the fishery and catch your trout and cook it for tea! Rooms are basic as you would expect. Would be nice to have handtowels/handriers in the toilets; saves people using toilet paper to dry hands and throw down the loos which will eventually... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a night on the way from Inverness to Edinburgh and stayed in a private room. The facilities were nice, especially the well-stocked and well-equipped kitchen, and the wooded setting not far from the center of Aviemore is good too. However, the value is a bit skewed - we paid $80 for a private... More

A group of us stayed here while cycle touring and the service was excellent. The facilities were clean, the rooms comfortable and the staff hospitality and helpfullness were excellent. It was a great start to a really enjoyable tour. My partner and I were staying in a private room, and the beds hadn't been made up when we arrived. It... More

We were just a walk in to this hostel. They were very nice and we were shown a room right away. It's on the edge of town. A lot of hikers use this location. The front room has areas for your muddy shoes. Kitchen area was good-not the biggest hostel kitchen I've seen. But I'd recommend.

The Aviemore Youth Hostel was the first ever hostel I've stayed with and I must say, I never noticed much difference between that and a chain hotel. The rooms are basic without a television however, with the amount of activities surrounding the establishment, it makes the perfect base for a fun filled adventure. There are plenty of shared showers and... More

Great hostel in good location close to train and bus. Big spacious and comfortable common areas with outstanding views. Kitchen is excellent and very well equipped, as well as big (part of the kitchen was being renovated whilst there which was a bit of a challenge due to restricted access hours but was still all good) . Rooms were fine... More
