The common room and the kitchen are a bit small BUT the staff is amazing and the beds are comfy. I have never had a staff that tried to bring all the guests together quite like A Wild Elephant. I really enjoyed my stay and wish I could have stayed longer.
This is the hotel of hostels. Private bathrooms, plush beds and charging outlets by every bed. The common room isn't great for meeting travellers but it could be worse. The bar below makes great food but overcharges for drinks. Otherwise it's a great place!
Staff wasn't great, they kept to themselves. It's on the other end of town from the train station so get ready for a hike. Clean though, so that's a plus.
You get way overcharged for 18 person dorms. But the common room is decent and the kitchen is good, I guess.
Had a lot of fun at inverness. People were super friendly and the place is right beside the bus station. Only problem is that the shower fan is super loud and reverberates into the dorm rooms.

The only security this hostel offers is the keycard into your room. It's an open door policy so anyone in the area can come drink and walk right up to your room. So if a room mate doesn't close the door, you can be robbed pretty easily. There is locker storage on site but most are busted up. It's way too expensive for the cleanliness factors and the sleeping accommodations and it seems like you are inconveniencing the staff when you approach them
