    Let’s start with location. It’s right in front of Inverness Castle so you can’t get better. Beds are bunks, but in a box and you get a curtain so you get a nice private space with a USB port, lamp and a shelf. Toilets and showers are clean. Kitchen is well equipped and has space to store your food. Free coffee and tea. Staff is always friendly, has great knowledge on the city and its surroundings and they are very helpful. It is not a party hostel, it is a place to chill and rest. Loved it!

    I had a great stay here! I was in one of the mixed rooms and felt completely safe, everyone was super friendly and it was a cozy place. The location was amazing and whenever I had a question about an area someone always had the answer.

    Loved staying at Bazpackers! Warm, inviting and friendly. Comfortable pods. Clean bathrooms. Lovely, cozy chill area. Prime location, close to everything. Right next to an awesome little pub. The staff were amazing! Riccardo is exceptionally friendly and has an intense love of history - we chatted for ages about the sights to see around Inverness. Very welcoming atmosphere. A lovely hostel that I would definitely stay at again, and would highly recommend!

    One of the best hostels I've stayed at! Riccardo was so nice and so helpful. I stayed in a 4-bed female room: nice space, great lockers, individual outlets and lights, and although they didn't have shelves, they had these kinda sleeves on all the beds where you could put stuff like glasses or watches, etc. Very useful! Bathrooms and shower were some of the best I've seen in hostels. Very nicely located, 5 minute walk from the train station. Would recommend!

    The hostel is a really nice location to stay in Inverness! The staff were super friendly! Everything was clean and you've got everything you need! Although the shower wasn't that good because the water jet was poor. All in all a very nice hostel!!

    Lovely hostel, would recommend. The only reason I’ve downgraded atmosphere is because one of the chaps in my room spent half the night having sex. Not the hostels fault I know but grim all the same

    This was a great hostel! Nice, fully stocked kitchen and a great location close to downtown and grocery stores and the train station. The common area with the fire was so great for chasing away the damp. The staff was super friendly and helpful. I loved the pods in the rooms as they gave a sense of privacy. Just wish they vacuumed around and under the mattresses in the beds :) Decent bathrooms and showers with free hair dryers. Would stay again!
