The bed was comfortable & nice view of the River Ness. We stayed in April. We had private room so we were off at another entrance which was filthy and neglected. I was fine with that. I just needed a place to put my head. EWW. From the check, which we ran the buzzer for 15 minutes to the guy... More

I was able to check in without a reservation with no problems whatsoever. The man on the front desk was very welcoming and showed me to my room right away. Whenever I saw him, he had a smile on and always said "hi." I was in a separate section of the hostel, so the rroms that were over in said... More

Stayed for three nights in a dorm. Small, but very comfortable beds. I would prefer to be in a more cramped six person dorm than a big 12 person one. The facilities were clean, and the common area was very comfortable and cozy. Really enjoyed the chill atmosphere. Nice mix of people and good location near the castle. They were... More

We are a family of 5 that stayed here for one night. We booked a 6 room dorm with three bunk beds. We had someone stay in the sixth bed, but we expected that as the place was booked. The hostel is small, but in a good location close to Inverness Castle and a short walk to the city centre.... More

My friend and I stayed there and it has been our favourite hostel so far. Not too much noise and with a great location, we could see the castle and river from our window. Upstairs there is a toilet/shower room that is a little more private, quite modern and clean. Having this option was great as I have only just... More

Bazpackers was ideal accommodation for my friends and I during Rockness festival, the rooms were standard and the bathrooms were clean. It's beside a really nice pub that does decent bar food, opposite the castle and only a five minute walk into the town. The staff were the best part, super friendly and easy-going. Would definitely stay here again.

I've now stayed at this hostel twice and i have to say both times have been perfect. It is not what you would call a party hostel, it's a nice place to just relax and have a good time. The common room is a great place to hang out, make new friends and get warm near the fire. The Kitchen... More

I traveled through Scotland for 10 days, and this was our only disappointment. We had a private room, but it was in another building, around the corner from the main kitchen and gathering area. The entrance to our section was pretty disgusting and dirty. The bed itself wasn't bad, but the room was dirty and tiny, and the bathroom was... More

My dad and I decided to stay in Bazpackers again as it is reasonably priced and within close proximity to the centre of town. We opted to stay in the apartment as it had it's own kitchen and bathroom facilities, giving us the option to use them whenever we wanted. However, this experience was not enjoyable, compared to our last... More

After having traveled Ireland & Scotland for two weeks prior to staying here - I can honestly say this was by far the worst hostel we booked. We had a private room with a double bed. The room was musty and the carpets were peeling in the corners. The mattress had springs sticking up and we had to place blankets... More
