Me and my friend stayed at the Inverness Student Hostel for five nights and it started to feel like home. We even got one night for free. The atmosphere is relaxed and sociable, the staff is always up for a nice conversation and very helpful. We enjoyed those five days very much and I would definitly recommend it!!

When we arrived we asked for some must-sees in Inverness, the receptionist gave us a map and started explaining a lot about the city and draw a really nice walk for us. She was also helping us with searching for another hostel in Edinburgh and calling a lot of hostels to find a place for us to stay, super friendly.... More

Just loved the place. Nice people at the reception, they try the best to help you when you need something. The bedrooms are comfy (I really like the sheets. it feels like you're in a sleepingbag, lol). The kitchen is nice, they provide coffee and hot chocolate for free and they have the "free food" at the kitchen, with stuff... More

Maybe i'm too geek but when I'm traveling in 2014, internet is an amenity just like water or electricity. That's why i didn't fancy that during the two days spent there i could never ever use the internet (tried with two different devices). The girl at the reception just shrugged her shoulder and said that 'maybe later she'll restart the... More

The hostel was a short walk from the train station, and easy to find. It was also close to a great tapas restaurant which we had dinner in.

A comfortable, clean hostel and great location. The views from this place are magnificent, it is far away enough from the town centre that it feels relaxed, and is also neighbouring one of the best pubs in town: The Castle. Comfy beds and helpful, kind staff. Fun people with whom it's easy to strike up a conversation and have a... More

I was here just for two nights in July. The hostel is not so big, but it is clean and full of entertainment objects. Unfortunately it has showers without enough space for being common showers.
