    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

    Amazing hostel! So clean and friendly with really comfy beds! Staff were so welcoming and interactive with the guests, they even organised a quiz night at a neighbouring tavern to get all the guests together! Always a fire on in the common room and everything you would need facilities wise. Couldn't recommend this hostel more if you're going to Inverness, definitely will be going back :)

    Excellent hostel: clean, friendly, quiet, great location, excellent views, comfortable and private bunks. The common area was small but very cozy and the staff were very friendly. Highly recommended place to crash.

    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.

    Very Good

    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.
