Stayed here for one night of my tour around the Highlands. The staff were very helpful, around 1am he went through the first aid kit with me as someone in my room needed it. Very friendly atmosphere in the common room and £2 breakfast served every morning. Only disappointment was the beds as I could hardly sleep.

Staff was really nice and always helpful. The rooms and beds were ok, though there definitely could've been more bathrooms on the lower floor and our dorm could've done with two beds less - it felt s bit cramped at times. Kitchen and lounge are quite small, thus crowded and also a bit dark - was hoping for a more... More

I specifically broke up my trip between the Isle of Skye and the Edinburgh area in Inverness because it was a Saturday night and I knew I could find good live music. The hostel is a bit rough around the edges and the kitchen is really small, but it was clean and friendly and really well located. I'd stay there... More

I was surprised to find that the unisex shower room on my floor did not have any space for disrobing/dressing. You had to try to navigate everything within the wet shower stall or strip naked in front of any other occupants. But what was really upsetting is that no one was at the front desk when I needed to check... More

Thank you for your review; we always appreciate our guests feedback. First, I would deeply like to apologize about the reception being closed when you wanted to check out; we do open at 7am but that day the person on shift didn't make it on time. We've been trying to post you your deposit back but sadly, in the note... More

Favorite hostel ever! I stayed in the sisters to this hostel in both Edinburgh and Skye, and for me this one was the best. It is undoubtedly small, and can be crowded at peak times like breakfast and dinner, but for a solo traveller that only more easily facilitates mingling and chatting. If it's too crowded to find a seat,... More

It is a well-run hostel. It's in an older building, which means it has some quirks, but nothing that really detracts from the stay. It seemed like a lot of guests were cooking whole meals in the kitchen which made things rather crowded in the evening. Lounge has some beautiful leather couches that seem like probably a recent addition. Staff... More

Very noisy guests and some very rude! But that isn't the hostels fault! But nice staff and relatively clean. Shower flood issue on the top leve of the hostel meant that water backed up on itself when showering which was not so fun.

Thank you for your review. First of all we're sorry that guest were rude and noisy; I guess some people don't understand manner. Next time, please, do not hesitate to come to reception and let us know ( either receptionist or night porter) about it and we'll try to do something about it. We're glad you enjoyed our staff though!... More

We stayed here for one night and that was okay. The flair of the puplic room was nice but all furniture is really old. Our 6 bed room was also ok for one night. The toilettes were clean. The showers really small. They had a private parking place for all customers which was really nice!

It did not suit us but perhaps we are a bit long in the tooth to try scaling a bunk bed with no step ladder and no rails. We did not actually stay as the only beds left were top bunks and the room looked really crowded with stuff everywhere. The host was very helpful and I guess if we... More

Very cosy hostel, good atmosphere. Kitchen is a bitt small but we were using it at a time when not many others were there. I personally don't mind but it's maybe a bit weird that bathroom/toilet are mixed.

Thankyou for taking the time to write us a review, We like to think of our kitchen as cosy and that the free herbs, spices and oils, compensate for its snug-ness :) We hope you enjoyed your stay with us and that you will choose to come back and visit sometime! More
