Great location and very good for cheap accommodation for one night

The facility was fine and affordable, but I wasn't impressed with the staff Ali, who didn't meet us in person which made it difficult for us to pay. He wasn't able to collect our credit card information over the phone because he had misplaced the device, so we had to come back to the hostel after we had already left. It ended up delaying our trip and was very inconvenient.

Over all this was a pretty safe and clean place to stay. However the owner has other hostels he takes care of as well and there is no staff at this hostel which made us feel a little uncomfortable and also made it difficult to get towels etc. You also have to call him when you arrive to get the code to get in which can be difficult if you don't have a phone to do so. It just felt a little strange that there was no staff or cameras etc.

The owner is very friendly and helpful, being a local he had excellent knowledge of the surrounding area. The Hostel itself is a great bargain, clean rooms/bathroom/kitchen, excellent location (5 minute walk to the centre). I would highly recommend.

Not very clean -- mildew on the shower curtains, crumbs in drawers and on countertops, dirty floors. Water damage throughout the building. Was not expecting to have to call to be let in and had to walk up the hill with all my gear to find the payphone. Inconvenient. The staff person also did not show up until 10:30 PM to collect payment when we were already in bed.

There was a huge bug in the living room. Apart from that it was okay considering the low price.

Overall, the hostel was what we were expecting for the price. It was basic, but clean. We weren't expecting bunk beds though. I think the description said that it was a twin room. The bunk beds weren't a problem, but it would have been nice to know what we were getting. The walls are very thin, however the other guests were quiet at night so it wasn't an issue. The shower had very low water pressure and didn't go quite hot enough. Check-in was simple, great location.

Great location - in the very centre of town. It is some drawback that, even at the declared arriva time, the owner need not be on site and will have to call him. We were lucky that a cleaning person worked there when we arrived so that we were able to get in. Remember to ask the owner to turn on heating, since it can be quite cold in Inverness even in April. In general, recommended.

We had a great stay, this hostel was fantastic value for money at £10 a night. The wifi definitely deserves mentioning as it was fast and available everywhere within the hostel. It was also nice to have a kitchen and sitting room available to us for our group to meet up outside of our rooms.

It sounded weird where we got to the main door and saw the instructions we had to follow in order to get in the house. You have to call to the owners phone number and they will pop in there and give you your room key. Staff was very nice and helpful. Negative point: bathroom and kitchen were very dirty. However, the bedroom was clean.

This hostel was a bit hard to find, but once we did, it was perfect. The owner is wonderful and helpful and the rooms are nice and clean. It is located right by the river Ness and by many shops and beautiful churches. The bus station is walking distance away and there are bus stops all around if you want to travel around a bit. I would highly recommend taking the Jacobite tour of Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle. I would absolutely recommend this hostel.
