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.

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!

I had a really fun stay at this hostel and I will tell you why. The atmosphere. 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. The location is fine, just a bit off the town centre. They could... More

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

Staff were friendly and helpful throughout our stay. The free tea/ hot chocolate was a great touch as was the luggage area which is very handy! Beds are decent. Living area was colourful and cosy, great place to relax and chat to other people staying there. Also has board games.

I spent one night here in a mixed room with five people. The hostel was very clean, the staff were really friendly and helpful, and the location was good. It is less than a 10 minute walk into the city centre. I would recommend this hostel to my friends.

I have stayed in many hostels while travelling , and this one was one of the more expensive for the night and was not very nice at all. The pictures shown are obviously from when it first opened as it is very run down now. The rooms are very small and cold and a bit smelly, worse yet there is... More

Hi Abbie! We are very sorry you had an unpleasant stay at our hostel.

Really nice hostel. Very friendly and nice atmosphere. Close to the water and with a great view of the castle. It is about a 10 minute walk from the old city and transport stations. The people working there are very accommodating and nice. They have a really cheap breakfast available as well. Highly recommended.

Just like the sister hostel 'Skye Backpackers', Inverness Student Hotel was a nice experience for me. I've been there before Isle of Skye and also on my way back. Dorms aren't the best i've seen but they are clean and comfortable. Toilets and showers were also clean. Kitchen and community areas are also available for guests. It doesn't have a... More
