The hostel lies near the railway station and bus stops to Cairngorm mountain. Supermarkets and clothing stores are nearby. Do not forget the popular walk to the viewpoint that is also next to the hostel. So beautiful with frozen lochs and wide view. Staff are helpful. Toilets and bathrooms are seperated by gender. All faccilities are clean and convenient. Free... More

It is very welcoming and very good for solo travellers for few reasons: - you meet similar travellers there -it is cosy and warm -it is cheap like around 20£ per night which is very decent Also they can give you nice advise and information for things to do in the area :) (for free)

I have stayed here on quite a few occasions and can recommend booking it as the location is a few minutes walk from the railway station. They do food, have the usual self catering kitchen and is within easy staggering distance from many decent bars.

Interesting hostel. Run by close knit friendly team. Kept spick n span clearly with pride. Appears to have been recently modernised but somehow feels old fashioned. Good drying room and hot showers 👍 Red squirrel & bird feeding station a novel idea. Enjoyed my stay, thanks. ⛄️

I can't imagine what this place will be like for people staying here over the colder and wetter months. The staff were grumpy, unhelpful and seemed to hold this strange resentfulness towards anyone trying to enjoy themselves. Push button showers that last 4 seconds before having to press the button again (those old school swimming pool showers). When we arrived... More

I stayed here for one night during June 2015. We arrived late at night and left early in the morning. I was only there for about 10 hours. Despite this, my stay was awful. I felt the toilet across from us was disgusting. I have never smelt anything so awful. It was a smell which I believe had been allowed... More

This hostel is located quite close to the main road running through Aviemore yet away from it on a side street, so it manages it be both central and secluded. It is not characterful in any way but neither is it clinically fresh and it's surrounded by beautiful parkland where I spotted red squirrel. Staff come across as the disciplinarian... More

Lovely staff; everyone super-welcoming, friendly and helpful. Great to have a kitchen to cook in. Go to the fishery and catch your trout and cook it for tea! Rooms are basic as you would expect. Would be nice to have handtowels/handriers in the toilets; saves people using toilet paper to dry hands and throw down the loos which will eventually... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here for a night on the way from Inverness to Edinburgh and stayed in a private room. The facilities were nice, especially the well-stocked and well-equipped kitchen, and the wooded setting not far from the center of Aviemore is good too. However, the value is a bit skewed - we paid $80 for a private... More

A group of us stayed here while cycle touring and the service was excellent. The facilities were clean, the rooms comfortable and the staff hospitality and helpfullness were excellent. It was a great start to a really enjoyable tour. My partner and I were staying in a private room, and the beds hadn't been made up when we arrived. It... More
