Nice hostel very close to Inverness Castle. Nice rooms and good kitchen facilities. Danni was a great help giving us hot tips on what to see the next day in Skye. We accidentally left some items in the hostel when we left and they arranged to have them sent on the tour that was leaving to Skye which was a... More

I liked that they took us at the last minute. Breakfast was all wheat for those who have gluten issues. One outlet per room of 6 and the bathroom was mixed regardless of paying for all female accomodations. They will do your landry for a short fee and put stuff in their safe for you for free. If you clean... More

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. This "hotel" (i'm not too sure why it is called a hotel) isn't as great as I would have expected based on the reviews. We stayed in room 2 which was one level above reception. The room was pretty basic, but that's ok. The downside was the mould growing across the... More

I loved every minute of my stay at the Inverness student hostel. The staff made me feel at home and they also made me laugh, a lot! I originally planned to stay for 2 nights but extended it to 7 because I loved it so much. The building has a lot of character and is cosy and warm inside so... More

My stay at Inverness Student Hotel was fabulous! I absolutely adored your delightful and very welcoming staff members and if I were to return to Inverness, I would be very happy to stay there again.

I stayed here for three nights and overall loved it. The free hot chocolate, tea and coffee is great. Breakfast was one of the best on offer I had in two months of travelling around Europe (have their toasted muesli - SO delicious!!) The evening fire is wonderful; I'd give them an extra point just for this. The staff and... More

The owner has an incredible friendliness and desire to help the guests which is transferred to everybody who enters the place hence the entire atmosphere within the Hostel is very warm and friendly. As a matter of course you cannot expect much when paying 15 pounds per night. Nevertheless this hostel has everything you need: it's clean, the beds are... More

"Shower Room" consists of three toilets, three sinks and a shower stall. Shower doors are homade- two pieces of Formica board and a hook. For privacy, you need to step into a shower stall or a toilet stall to change. Did I mention it is unisex? See pictures. I should also mentioned there is a shower in the hall. A... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and I am sorry that your stay was not entirely satisfactory. The shower upstairs does have saloon style doors - due to space constrictions I'm afraid - however there is a lock on it & a shower curtain to try and ensure a wee bit more privacy. I am also...

I stayed here in early December, 2013. The rooms, in my opinion, the most importaint part of staying in a hostel or hotel ect, sucked - a lot!

Our comfortable dormitory rooms have between 5 and 10 beds in each room that come complete with full bedding and 2 comfy pillows! We have a spacious common room with big Victorian style windows that offer stunning views over the River Ness. It is a great place to meet like minded travelers, whilst enjoying all the free tea, coffee and hot chocolate you can drink! You can also relax in front of our beautiful real fire and take advantage of our FREE WiFi. The Student Hotel staff are always very friendly and approachable. We can help you book your tours, recommend places to visit and most importantly we know the hidden gems of the city to ensure you a memorable time in Inverness. We can arrange bike rental and will send you on your way with free maps to help you discover the magnificent beauty that is....Loch Ness! If you do see Nessie, don't forget to mention that you're staying with us when you talk to the press!Also, if you are completing the Great Glen Way and need a bed to rest your weary legs then you are in luck as we are only 100m metres away from the finish line. Hurrah!! We are also only 10 minutes walk from the Train and Bus Station and a quick 5 minutes walk into the town centre. ... more   less
