I enjoyed my stay, the beds were very nice. I stayed in a girls only room, and the other occupants were very nice. Everyone at this hostel was very friendly, from staff to guests. I would certainly stay at Bazpackers again. The location is very good, close to the castle, and the river. There are shops and restaurants quite close,... More

We stayed just one night in the Bazbackers Hostel, but were really happy with it. It is a cosy little place right next to Inverness Castle, so in easy walking distance from bus and train station. Literally around the corner is a nice pub, perfect for a lazy after travel pint. Bathrooms and kitchen and private room were clean. The... More

Lovely and friendly Wonderful showers Perfect to meet some people The hostel is not to big, therefore is familiar, it is like staying at home. The staff is willing and helpful. Centre position close to the castle and a lovely pub. There is also a little TV room with a lot of good films available

Pretty much your average hostel, with reasonable rates. It's small, which is nice. The beds are comfy, and there's a tv in every room which is cool for some I suppose. But my BF and I found the place a bit cramped and not the friendliest staff. That said, we'd probably stay here again because the location is great (across... More

We stopped at Bazpackers during our trip through Scotland and liked it so much that we didn't want to leave. All of the staff were super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The common room was cozy and a great place to meet other travelers. The rooms were clean and there was an excellent view of the river and castle. We were... More

I stayed at this hostel for one night alone. I usually book private rooms but this hostel didn't have any so I booked a 4 bed female dorm. The hostel wasn't full so I only shared the room with one other traveler which was nice. The wifi was free and worked well. The hostel was a 5 minute walk from... More

Shared a twin room with my cousin. Not a fan of co-ed showers and toilets but there is a private shower and toilet at the top of the floor. Guess its clean. Bedding is okay. No towels provided. Small kitchen, common room area but has a back garden. No onsite parking but there is on street parking under the castle... More

We stayed in this hostel for 2 nights in a double bedroom. It was a nice cozy room. As mentioned in previous reviews, the hostel is quite small but it suits the needs of a budget hostel. Located quite centrally in the city.

This hostel had the best showers I've ever had at a hostel. The shower head was massive with fantastic pressure and hot water. The location was great, right near the castle, river and shops. The beds were really comfy, actual mattresses. In addition, there was a TV with many DVDs to choose from and a cute common room area with... More
