Pretty good hostel. Really needs to get on board with recycling waste though. Single bins don't cut it with savvy young global visitors any more. Neither does telling them that Scotland doesn't recycle... Yes, Scotland recycles . This hostel doesn't. Besides that, spacious and clean community spaces. At least one small, tight dorm room. Great location.

Now this is what hostels should be like. The dorm room was very generous and spacious.no sense of overcrowding too. Very modern and fresh facilities. Only criticism is that the immaculate and new showers come directly off bathrooms so there is a lack of privacy. Staff great (and handsome) .

Decent big chain hostel with lots of capacity but not a very central or interesting location. I was disappointed with staff - they seemed either inexperienced, inattentive , sometimes even rude. There was always a long wait to be seen and none of them apologised for the wait or said 'with you soon'. The low price rises sharply when you realise you have to hire bedding and towels. Add on the breakfast and your stay will be 15 euros more than you expected.

Staff at the time of my visit were very attentive, professional and helpful. The hostel is well situated for the gay part of the city but quite far from the city centre. The rooms are small and stuffed with people as expected but the good, spacious and private en suite bathroom improves the room. There are quite good facitilies including a bar. And cycle hire is cheap and fantastic offer.

An ok, basic hostel. Can't expect too much for the price. Travellers are staff here which means service is variable and idiosyncratic... Occasionally you can feel like you're in the way of the person on reception. Although I'm sure that was just the couple I met. Facilities are good. All mattresses in all hostels in Inverness ( the others are the same) need to be replaced with quality ones. No one wants to sleep on a pile of hard springs. I liked that there were tubs of abandoned toiletries.

Alex was a great host. Very helpful, friendly, and informative. He made my stay enjoyable. The hostel itself is a simple organic fruit farm on the edge of town and there will always be food on the table grown on site. There are two adorable dogs. The rooms and bathrooms were simple and fine.

Very busy hostel. Staff hadn't quite got the hang of how to run the place and keep it clean and tidy. Dorms were heaving busy, there seemed to be one or two local odd characters amongst the lads on tour type guests. Maybe raise the price a bit to keep the riff raff out and hire a few more cleaners. Parts of the hostel were locked up as it got late. Which is a bit disapponting.

Wonderful gem of a hostel , perfect for exploring the cairngorms (esp if you have your own transport) the hostel is big, comfortable and sociable with a great calm atmosphere. The two women who were staffing the place were loudly bitching about the guy staff (who didn't deserve it at all) c'mon ladies. Not in front of the guests!

Only complaints were that the guy running the desk at the time didn't quieten things down - the noisy (innane) chatter carried on until after midnight, and as it was so hot we couldnt close the windows to keep it quiet.

Was delighted with my little room on the roof. Had a secluded roof terrace all to myself. If the room had had a double bed it would have been astonishing, but for the money it was great. I had breakfast out there and did a few exercises without anyone seeing. Good air conditioning and the shared bathrooms were very clean, dry and spacious.

Had a good stay in a private room here - a room with a bunk and just me. Everything was very clean and pleasant and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
