Nice cozy lounge. Free parking space and proximity to city center are a big plus. They also arrange some backpacking trips in Highlands. The only problem is with the toilets. They are almost and always occupied.

Things didn't start well when water started dripping out of the light fittings at reception. Someone had flooded the shower upstairs and it was messing with the electrics as a result. A number of extension leads were set up, clearly keeping the power on while water was running from the ceiling was a good idea... A key deposit was required,... More

We stayed for one night at the hostel. The beds were clean, the mattresses were literally a layer of foam. The showers are not very clean, you can see all the hair still. James the receptionist was very helpful, he told us where to go and what better to avoid. The service was good. The problem of a hostel is... More

The hostel was ok, pretty standard really, nothing spectacular but nothing spectacularly bad either. Kitchen was small but had all the facilities you needed. Best thing was the free coffee, hot chocolate and tea. Stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm and the beds were hard but duvet and sheets nice. Only 2 showers and 3 toilets (both mixed), cramped... More

This hostel is a lot of fun. The decor, energy, and employees make it a welcoming and homey place to stay. Very cozy, and the wifi works well. The optional and inexpensive breakfast choices were not exactly gourmet but nice to have. I think it's worth booking here over other hostels in inverness even though it's a bit farther from... More

Pros: cozy lounge area (posters, guitars, book swap, twinkle lights), great and friendly staff, two pillows on the bed, good location, bed was already made upon arrival Cons: bed linen needs updating, breakfast could be better (yogurt perhaps?), no lights or outlets at each bunk, no barrier on top bunks (I was afraid I might fall in the night), no...

The common living room was great, the atmposhere was lovely, the breakfast was good, the place was hygienic and the staff was very pleasant. Only (small) downsides were the beds, they were a little hard, and the absence of a shelf and night lamp next to every bed.

Hi Mark! I am glad you enjoyed staying with us! This is interesting that you bring up the bed light as we are planning to set all our beds with single socket and a light in the near future! I guess you'll have to come back when it'll be done ;) Thank you! More

In past reviews I read that people had concerns about security, low water pressure, no places to put things in shower, etc. By the time I got there they must have fixed all that, water pressure was fine (just had to turn both on), they offered free storage for personal items (ie computer) behind desk while I was gone for...

Absolutely loved my time at the hostel, staff was very helpful and friendly. Very relaxed atmosphere with plenty of information about the area! Rooms were well kept and cleaned daily while we were out. Great place to meet new people and exchange travel stories. Highly recommended staying here if you're in Inverness!

The people were really friendly right when I walked through the door and kater in the evening when the hostel filled up there was loads of conversation to be had.

Hey Charlie! I am glad that you had a fun time with us! Yes we would like to have lockers in the rooms, but as you noticed, some of them are pretty small and that would be inconvenient. We offer to keep the valuables in reception, we do have a big safe and it is kept locked all the time.... More
