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. The beds were comfy and our room was warm and decorated nicely. The staff at reception were welcoming and helpful. The free tea and coffee was very handy and the there was... More

Thank you very much for your review. Seems like you guys had fun around Inverness even though you just stayed for a short time. Thank you for noticing how lucky we are with our location; the views are great, we're just 2 min walk to the city centre and there's plenty of pubs and restaurants to enjoy a nice lunch... More

Thank you for taking your time to write us a review. Great to know you enjoyed our free tea, coffee and hot chocolate and our kitchen; we know it's rather small but it's a brilliant place to chat with other guests or staff members. It's one of the friendliest places in our hostel I believe. Sorry to hear you couldn't... More

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

Thank you for that lovely review. We're very happy to know you enjoyed your time with us. Indeed, the views from the hostel are stunning, it's great to see the river and our lovely Inverness from the top. The Castle Tavern is one of our first options if we're going for food or drinks; good choice! Hopefully we'll see you... 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. One other problem is that the upper beds have no protection by accidentally fallings and there are few power socket in the dormitory. The staff... More

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.

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

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us, we are glad we could accommodate you last minute which is certainly easier in the quiet winter months than the busy summer months. It is unfortunate that the rooms only have one power point I agree but we do try to make up for that by having an... 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
