Surprised at some of the negative reviews. As far as hostels go this one is good, it is clean, staff are fine (young and very willing to help) rooms comfortable, nice little outside area and self catering kitchen fine though a bit small. Co ed rooms work because the guys seem to leave their egos and bad habits behind and... More

If you're travelling on a budget but are still looking for something nice, this is probably the best deal in Inverness. Cosy atmosphere and very well located, close to Inverness town centre.

We had a private double room in this hostel and could not fault the location as it is so close to the town centre and found ourselves drawn to the lovely pub next door, the Castle Terrace, which was a little sun trap in the afternoon and always lively in the evening. The room was very comfortable but had limited... More

we're used to roughing it up, but this was below our expectations. the receptionist was grumpy and neither room, kitchen nor the bathroom were clean, which was a major disappointment. not a cyclist friendly place!!! good location though.

The hostel may have its small weaknesses, but it was the best one I stayed at during my trip to Scotland just for its cosiness. The common room and kitchen area are very homely because of an ever crackling fireplace, the lovely housecat and souvenirs from generations of backpackers all over the room. The atmosphere is very relaxed, quiet and... More

We booked a private double room but it was horrible. The reception girl bring us to another side of the building to our room, which is old , no any view and everything is quite dirty. the toilet is OK but the shower was really bad. There is no hit inside the shower room and the hot water is also... More

I booked in advance because my friend and I were cycling from John O Groats to Land's End so needed places to stay each night and somewhere safe to put our bikes when we got into a town/city. When we got there, the live in maitre dee/receptionist/cleaner, etc was very accommodating and let us keep our bikes padlocked in the... More

My sister and I stayed here for two nights in May 2006. We'd booked a month in advance, had requested a female room and got one. It was well-booked when we arrived; we witnessed more than one person request a room for the night and get turned away. Our room had a fantastic view of the river and St. Andrew's.... More

We stayed at Bazpackers for one night in a quad room for a family of four. The room was extremely small (about 4m x 4m) and consisted of two bunk beds. The shared shower and bathroom facilities were moderately clean. Room was moderately clean also but expect lots of different stains on the carpet etc. Worst problem was that there... More
