    Backpackers has been my favorite hostel to date. The room was so nice and comfortable. The location could not have been better. I love the atmosphere both in the room and in the main hangout space. Cleanest hostel ever. The staff were friendly and supremely helpful. 10/10!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

    I have been in a lot of hostels over my travels and this has to be the best! The area was fantastic. If you walk outside, the Inverness castle is directly in front of you and you can see the majority of the city. They have a cute little room where you can sit and look out these massive windows at the town below and the highland mountains in the distance. I was here for Christmas and they made us all Haggis Lasagna and Mulled Wine. I felt so at home here, and I have to thank the staff for that.

    Our stay here was so amazing. They have very comfortable beds, the staff are so friendly and knowledgeable and you can tell they care and love what they do. There is a cozy fireplace that warms your body and soul, everything was very secure and safe, and it was an amazing location. I would stay here again and again

    Fantastic place! It felt like home for the two days I was there. Everything was very clean, the beds were comfy, the cozy common room always had a small fire going, and the location is great. Emmanuel, Isabel, and the rest of the staff were also extremely helpful and friendly. This is my new favorite hostel!

    Great location without 5 minutes of bars and restaurants. The man at reception (sorry can’t remember his name but I think he was a French guy) was very friendly and was more helpful than you will get at 5 start hotels. Rooms are very clean as is the bathroom and kitchens and all use eco products. The bar next to the hostel (the castle inn) is a must, again very friendly with a mix of locals and tourists. Good value single malts and the bar staff will advise you which whiskies to try

    Very cute little hostel, beds in the dorms had privacy curtains which I always think is a nice touch. The common areas were great, heaps of space to keep your own food. There was a fire going which is always a big tick in my books. The only issue I had was with the shower, barely any water trickled out of it. I don’t expect much from the shower at hostels, but it wasn’t hot enough and being in a cold bathroom it wasn’t pleasant. Apart from that, would recommend.

    A really beautiful, atmospheric hostel with amazing views and in a great location! However it would have been good for the showers to have some sort of bath mat.

    Excellent location, and comfortable sleeping area. Was strange that there wasn’t enough outlets compared to the number of beds in the room. Also, common area seating was always occupied by the staff - friendly people, but guests couldn’t really take advantage of the space at all. Would definitely book again.
