a basic youth hostel, ok with the price paid.
4 beds dormitory, still with some squealing beds; calm night though.
Not enough shower though, and bathroom are the least you can get. There is a large common area, with tv and a roughly old pool table with two broken pool sticks :-(
Well that's the night you are ready to have once in a time, but that's it.

Ok youth hostel but a bit dated. Showers need sorting. Scalding hot but no temperature control and shower curtain designed to stick to your backside. Would stay there again for convenience of location.

Good points - location, warm, clean, spacious communal areas, hot showers, cheap offers in March - 30% discount.

Other points - get rid of the "shoes off" sign at the entrance.
Higher wattage lighting in the bedrooms.
Tighten the bolts on the squeaky beds,
Put heating on in the shower rooms.
Sort out the ventilation/extraction in the toilets/showers
Try not to make check-in such a negative experience - kitchen shuts at...be quiet at .... checkout at....put your laundry there.....no you can't have a second room key for a room of 5 people etc etc

Stayed 3 nights midweek recently. Facilities good although kitchen could perhaps do with a bit of TLC but useable. It was a bit noisy compared to other hostels though, perhaps the location attracts more travellers than hikers/cyclists compared to other hostels.

I would choose the hostel on the ski road next time. But really nothing bad to report. Handy for everywhere and very friendly staff.

Stayed here whilst going skiing in aviemore. Clean room, cheap prices and good location. Although we didn't use the kitchen it looked very well equipped. The shower was lovely and warm too. Tv room cosy with a nice fire
