Large outdated building that I can only assume use to be a hospital. Wifi only works downstairs in reception but wasn't working while we were there. Didn't use the kitchen so can't comment. Bathrooms were small but had hot water. Showers didn't drain properly but they didn't flood onto the floor. Thought the lady at reception was nice enough. Was... More

The kitchen at Inverness was filthy. There was out of date food in the fridge and on the storage shelves there was a baking tray with some sort of cooked vegetable dish with mould growing on it. The smell from this was horrendous. When I mentioned this to the staff they immediately cleared it away and apologised that this hadn't... More

As readers of my reviews will have noticed I like to stay in minimum 4 star accommodation so when I was involved in the recent World Orienteering Championship in Inverness and required to stay in the Inverness Youth Hostel I approached this with a considerable degree of trepidation. However I was pleasantly surprised by the experience. My room was a... More

If the YHA movement is trying to squeeze in to the budget hotel market then this place is pretty bad. If you just expect a youth hostel then it is fine - good communal kitchen, reasonably close to the station and good cafe. We hired a private twin room - huge but very basic room and en-suite. Inverness is a... More

This was our second to last stop on our LEJOG and although a bit hard to locate, it was amazingly organ sued, with the reception area full of people on their phones, laptops and iPads. There were three computers available for the free use by guests. The dorms were clean, bright, fresh linen. The bathrooms with decent hot showers, the... More

I arrived at on time but the check-in desk was sill closed I was asked to wait two minuets while the staff had a conversation about laundry in front of me. After standing there 10 mins the conversation was completed and the check- in desk was duly opened, I was then brusquely asked to wait while some other people that... More

This hostel is a first class hostel in an excellent location, for others like us who were cycling it was great that it had a locking shed for the bikes, the dorm we were in was a 4 bed dorm and as there was 3 of us we ended up having it t our selves. The only grip I had... More

Really would advise you lok for somewhere else. Noisy and couldn't find security at night to complain. Not enough crockery. Had to wait for people to finish eating. Thought it was really expensive for what it was.

This hostel was the second hostel we stayed at during our tour of Scotland. It is basically a large old house that was converted into a hostel. The hostel has a small communal kitchen with refrigerators, a dining/break room, and a small lounge. It has free WiFi and coffee. The halls and rooms are a bit cramped, but the spaces... More
