A lovely atmosphere with friendly staff. If I ever visit Inverness again, I'd stay here again.
There is still some hope for backpackers, travellers and friends from all around the world. Thanks for a great stay.
hostel!!! We went here after we left another horrible hostel on the high street of inverness very friendly staff, mice rooms, great atmosphere we really felt at home. I highly recommend this hostel as your first choice!
This is a small hostel. The staff were fantastic, friendly and willing to go above and beyond to help you. Security was a bit lacking as there were no lockers or anything of the such but I did not feel at any point that my stuff was in danger of being stolen. Atmosphere was great. Nearly everyone was friendly and interested in chatting of cracking a joke or two. Price was decent at between 15-17 pounds per night. A great little place to rest your head while you explore Inverness!
Really enjoyed our stay, great location kol wee hostel
The location is good, within walking distance of the Castle, the River Walk, and the City Centre, but it's a pretty funky, old house, although the staff is nice and helpful. There wasn't really enough bathrooms for the number of people staying there, and I personally would much prefer separate ones for men and women. And you can hear other guests talking late at night throughout. Free parking is a plus, although I was the last one able to do so, since there are really only spots for 4 vehicles.
Unclean and disorganized. Staff thought we had checked out when we hadn't and gave away our beds for the second night. Assigned us new beds in a room with a guy who snored and moaned all night. They refused to do anything about it the next day, so we went elsewhere. Bathrooms are in very rough shape.
Nice hostel, great location, just near the castle and the main street, the staff is awesome. great address for small budget in inverness
I liked the vibe of this place. They were relaxed about my arrival time (10 pm). My dorm/ bed was comfortable, although limited in power points. The bathrooms were fine. The communal areas were good (in an old house) and the optional breakfast reasonably priced. The location was perfect - quiet, five minutes from the main stretch of bars etc and ten minutes from the bus station. Parking was available.
Very convenient for getting into the town centre, and a big thanks to the guy on the front desk this Thursday who found and returned my watch to me that I'd left in my bed!
The staff was not very helpful. They were out of the way and the facilities weren't very clean

Major con: No lockers in the dorms. Other cons: Having to tiptoe around my dorm during the 12 hours I was there. While I don't want a party hostel, I certainly don't want the atmosphere of a morgue either. There also isn't 24 hour reception, and the morning shift person was late in opening the place. Pros: Being given a bottom bunk per my request, decent bathrooms and showers, comfortable beds, great location, signs of life in the common areas, good Internet connection. Pretty good overall.
Great hostel in a great location. The staff we very friendly and the rooms were bright and welcoming. The only suggestion I have is to put a mirror in the rooms!
Nice hostel, at a 12-15 min walking distance from bus station. Neat and clean, cozy rooms, great wifi speed, lot of free things in kitchen, good crowd, friendly staff, decent value for money. It will be good to have more toilets/bathrooms though.
Lots of personality and the staff were helpful. Its a fairly small place and there were no lockers in the rooms but there was a nice view from the dorm!
Great location, helpful staff, excellent breakfast. A few more showers/bathrooms would be more convenient. Thanks!
Friendly staff, great atmosphere and comfy lounge. Kitchen even had spices and oil for cooking! Really enjoyed my stay. Bedding and linen is a bit old and thin, but clean.
