Simple and well located hostel. There is a dry room (very useful, by the way), quite a few washers.
Stayed the night before the aviemore half marathon, hostel full of runners so it was a good atmosphere, very relaxed place set in the woods With loads of wildlife, great big relaxing room with sofas to chill our. Really enjoyed my stay and would highly recommend and will most defo be going back maybe just to relax rather than run a half marathon!

Great location for hiking and the staff are very helpful. Continues the frustrating tendency of SYHA hostels of not putting plug sockets in the rooms.
The spacious television lounge at Aviemore Youth Hostel - with rabbits everywhere racing across vast green views outside its bay windows - is befitting a ritzy national park lodge. In fact, Aviemore is precisely in Cairngorm National Park. A quick 9-mile ride on the number 31 city bus climbs to the Cairngorm Ski Lodge, which is a steep but short 90-minute hike to the 1,245-meter summit of Cairngorm Mtn itself - featuring deep frost everywhere, freezing temperatures and near gale force winds.
Lovely sitting by fire, met some nice people
