Great little hostel with beautiful views of the castle and the river. Cozy sitting room with a fire, clean kitchen, and good showers. The staff was extremely helpful and was willing to go out of their way to make the visit easy and memorable. Thanks!

This was a great hostel located right on the river with beautiful views. Super welcoming with a warm and cozy fireplace and an inviting common area where you can meet other travellers if you want, or just hang out. The staff was great, always really friendly, helpful and were excellent at recommending things to do and places to see. Bathrooms...

The hostel makes the most of a small space but I felt I got value for money. It has been thoughfully put together, and had a lot of nice touches for me. The owner is obviously 'green'. They have put in LED lighting, use ecover products, and have chosen furniture and fittings that will last. It is very user friendly,...

The hostels location is perfect, right next to the castle and the beds were clean and mattress was springy. Toilets were a little cramped for a tall guy like me (6.0) I'd recommend this hostel to others! The thing I didn't like (nothing that the hostel has control of ) - Had a Chinese Family live next to us. At...

The hostel is well located, you can see the river Ness from the bedrooms and it isn't far from the city centre. The hostel is basic, the bathrooms are clean and the bedrooms are small yet clean and well-appointed. A good place to stay the night and to make new friends! PS: go have a pint at the pub downstairs!

If you are looking for a hostel that's friendly, warm, and cozy where you'll make lifelong friends this is the place! The staff is friendly and engaging, the common area is superb, and the location top notch. I highly recommend staying here if you're in Inverness. Bazpackers is everything a great hostel should be!

I recently stayed here with my boyfriend. We had a private room upstairs. The entire hallway smelled of mold. The bathroom had black mold all over the ceiling. Beds were comfy surprisingly. Wouldn't stay here again unless I was desperate.

We stayed here in a private room. Staff was friendly. Room was clean, comfortable, had good pillows, & a great location. Bathroom near our room was shared but I never had to wait to use it- nothing special but clean. Nice to have the shared kitchen to store any leftovers we brought back. Lack of free parking was a negative...
