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.

"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!

Cozy, welcoming and warm just few meters from Inverness Castle and the city center. You can't beat their 2 pounds breakfast with any place in the city, be sure to hit the kitchen in the morning.

I found this hostel to be very homey and welcoming. It had a nice atmosphere, good common room and kitchen. The rooms and bathrooms are very basic an probably in need of an upgrade, but nevertheless I enjoyed my stay here.
