Nice facilities, big common room and kitchen. Rooms left much to be desired, though. They were rather stuffy and the sheets didn't fit the bed properly. At the end of the day, a comfortable night's sleep is the reason you pay to stay somewhere, right? I gave them 4 stars because their location, friendliness, and price are all fantastic

I have a partiality for smaller hostels when backpacking so this has to be good. We arrived very late at night (the last bus from the airport was late by around 45 minutes). But the hostel staff told us that the entry code so it was easy - then we found that they were waiting up which was nice. The... More

Travel round Scotland for work, but Inverness is the only place where i willingly choose to stay in a hostel rather than a hotel, when there are reasonable choices of hotels / guesthouse choices available. The hostel is a very good location, close to the train and bus station. Always has friendly staff, and has a good living room and... More

Very helpful staff, nice quiet and clean hostel, well equipped kitchen and cozy common living room... This is by far one of the best places I've stayed in for a while. Mostly because we met a ton of amazing people here, but just the hostel in general as well. 5 minute walking from the main street and within crawling distance... More

Nice place with nice manager and near the bus and train station. Walkable to supermarkets and sights in town. Liked their policy of giving a good discount for staying also at their other hostels once you’ve stayed at one. Tend to be fully booked at times though. I stayed there around May, 2014.

I spent 2 nights in January 2015 and I found the place warm and cozy. I slept in a 10 beds dorm, which was almost full despite being in low season. They have been 2 crispy days (it snowed outside) but generally rooms were warm and pretty clean. There's a nice common area, with comfortable sofas and a piano and... More

This hostel has everything you need - a fully equipped and very spacious kitchen, a common area to chill and clean and tidy rooms. I only stayed here one night with my friends, but we felt so comfortable and welcome only after a couple of hours and we really didn't feel like leaving the next morning!

My partner & I stayed here for 2 nights & very much enjoyed our stay. The vibe is good with friendly staff & were happy to help. There is a wide flat screen tv in the common room which was a plus! It was also very clean & in a great location near plenty of restaurants/supermarket/pubs the train station &... More

The hostel is literally next to the bus station so it's super convenient. It's also a short walk to the pubs and the city centre, and there's a supermarket (Iceland) just across the road. One side of the hostel faces a highway so i could hear the cars but it wasn't loud enough to actually be a bother...maybe bring earplugs... More
