We stayed in a family room with two bunk beds. The room was quite small and basic and the showers were communal with two in a room. They provided us with lots of booklets about the area and had lots of discounts for activities. It was on a main road which wasn't too far from restaurants and a few shops.... More

I stayed here a few weeks ago while I was participating in a nearby course. I enjoyed my stay with nice shower facilities and comfy beds (for a youth hostel anyway!). I enjoyed talking to many people who were also staying in the hostel as the communal dining and seating areas allowed me to do this. Kitchen facilities were of... More

We stayed just one night in this youth hostel. The room was a large twin, with wash basin. the room was clean and the beds were really comfortable. We had the continental breakfast which cost extra to the room. There was plenty of choice- cereals, breads, meat and cheese, fruit, fruit juice, tea and coffee.

We stayed in a family room for four, which consisted of two bunk beds. The room was rather small with no place to keep or hang clothes but it did have a wash hand basin. The toilets and showers are shared, although there were not many of the latter. The hostel provides buffet breakfast and there is a good lounge... More

This modern, clean and accessible hostel is very comfortable. Good kitchen facilities and several places to sit and relax. Free wifi, though the provision of broadband in rural areas is never good or reliable - that's not the fault of the hostel. We were two adults but there were family groups in the hostel and it seemed an excellent choice... More

A very nice youth hostel with very clean bedrooms, and the packed lunches we brought from the hostel was spot on for our hike. Plenty of places to sit and chill out too. The only thing was the showers, press the button and the shower only ran for 3 secs. It was a bit annoying having to keep repeatly press... More

My 9 year old son, my husband and I had a great time staying here recently. Lots to do, including a walk right outside the door. Watched the red squirrels, rabbits and the nest cam of the local Peregrine falcon. Friendly helpful staff and great to be able to cook meals with your other residents and swap the days stories...

This hostel has very friendly (and helpful!) staff, and is a great environment for families, groups, and solo travelers alike. The rates are budget-friendly, and the building has some nice lounge areas and a fully-equipped kitchen. Worth the stay!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Surrounded by woodland, our youth hostel is situated on the boundary of the Cairngorms National Park, a short walk from Aviemore town centre and its bustling nightlife. The youth hostel itself is extremely peaceful, with great facilities. We are also ideally located for many outdoor activities year-round, such as snowsports, watersports and mountain biking. Most activities take place in the nearby Rothiemurchus Estate or on the Cairngorm mountain range. The area itself is host to a diverse range of wildlife, everything from red squirrels, deer, capercaillie, eagles and arctic hares. Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding. ... more   less
