“Cozy hostel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2012 via mobile

We stayed here for 4 nights. The staff were very friendly.

We had a twin room with shared bathroom. Decent size rooms- the room had a dam smell possibly due to the carpet. The hostel is clean. Walking distance to town and down to the river. Supermarket nearby. About 7 minutes walk to train and bus station.

Great kitchen facilities- oven, stove, grill, kettle, microwave. The common room can't cater for too many people but is very cozy with a wood fire chimney.

Warm welcome, fireplace, friendly staff, light bedrooms, free towel and padlock. Good asmosphere & price. Best hostel @Inverness. One Thing, the place isn't very clean... So better take your flipflops.

The standard of cleanliness in this hostel is poor. The kitchen and toilets need a good clean (e.g. there was old faeces underneath the toilet seat and at the back of the bowl and thick layers of dust on the rubbish bins). And, we were not sure when the duvets were last clean - they look and smell dirty.

We recently stayed at Bazpackers Hostel while on a trip to Northern Scotland. The rooms were a good size and a great price. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The position was unbeatable. Just across the road from the Inverness Castle and next door to a Pub with great meals. The building was very old and interesting. Would stay there again. There was 8 of us travelling together, so we had two x 4 bed rooms. One of us left some items behind. Staff were happy to post them onto us. Great service.

Party of 4 females stayed overnight here in May 2012. We are the type of travellers who were looking for cleanliness, comfort and location for our accommodation and this certainly met our expectations. Staff were helpful and friendly. This place is about 20min walk from Tesco if you need to buy supplies. The room we stayed in is actually an apartment of sorts, just a short walk around the corner of the main hostel so if you have a car with lots of luggage to bring in, I suggest you find a nearby parking spot, check in, then grab your luggage to take it straight into the room. The apartment was cosy consisting of lounge/dining room, kitchen, bedroom with two bunks, bathroom off bedroom. The heaters were excellent! The bathroom was a little bit wet due to a leaky shower. The only downside to this place is that I had booked us in for another night on our way back through Inverness and they got the date wrong so we had no place to stay - I accept part responsibilty of that for not insisting they send a booking confirmation, so to avoid our mishap, ask they email you a booking confirmation!
