You can't get any better than Inverness Student Hostel. Staff is awesome, facilities are clean, and location is great. Inverness is a laid-back city and this hostel fits right in. Felt more like home than a hostel.

Very good hostel in a convenient location. The lady at the reception was nice and helpful. The common area, kitchen and bedroom were excellent. Unfortunately, the bathroom was small, smelly and in need of a bit of work.

This hostel is excellent from almost all aspects. IThe room is not too big (6 bedded mixed dorm) but just nice for us. They provide free flow of coffee, tea and hot chocolate for people staying here. We especially love the shower rooms because they are brightly-lit and most importantly it is very warm. The lounge area is very comfortable too, with all the leaflets and travel tips available.

Nice hostel, great location (in the very centre of the city, next to the Inverness Caslte and with a lot of Pubs and local inside-city sightseeing attractions), very clean, tidy and with comfy beds (BTW, the same pattern of others' backpackers). The drawbacks are the horrible car-parking (albeit there are some parks lots across the street) and the tiny place for the breakfast/meals (only 4 seats!).

There was no heating in the rooms. This by the way was in the middle of December in the Scottish Highlands. I slept with my clothes and coat on for my entire stay, so I didn't freeze to death. That was completely unacceptable, and people should have been notified of the heating issue before checking in.

Awesome staff, friendly and helpful and seemed genuinely interested in what I had been up to. Atmosphere was fantastic, good place to meet others. Room was the most spacious I've been in after 2 months of travelling. Room had good high view of town, made for some good photos after it snowed in the morning.

Great friendly place to be, would go back tomorrow if I could. Really helpful and friendly staff. There is a closure at 2am which some might not like, but it's really close to a great bar and there is enough entertainment in the common room generated by groups of travellers you won't mind anyway!

This is a great little hostel! You really feel at home, the location is perfect, close enough to the centre of town but with great views of the River Ness. The kitchen has everything you could need, including an amazing variety of spices! Would definitely stay here again. Make sure to check out Hootanannys pub!
