    This was one of the best hostels we stayed in! The rooms were great in size (we had two beds with two pillows each) and the washrooms were very clean. There were enough outlets for us to charge all our devices & I loved that we had a view from our room too. The staff was very helpful when checking in and checking out. I will definitely be staying here again because it was so clean and near enough to everything we wanted to do in Inverness.

    Awesome hostel in the centre of Inverness, next to the castle. We stayed in the six person dormitory for two days because of the marathon that took place that weekend. Nothing but love for this hostel. The staff was very nice, there was a kitchen and a lounge area we could use, the bathroom facilities were clean. Lots of privacy because of the little curtains on each bed. Because of the marathon the staff opened up the kitchen at six which is very thoughtful and we could shower afterwards too!:)

    Easily one of the best hostels I’ve ever stayed in. The staff were super friendly, helpful, and hospitable, and the rooms and facilities were clean and well-kept. The shared living space is super comfortable as well. Completely recommended.

    What a gorgeous hostel! Superbly clean, brilliant location just 10 minutes walk from everything, friendly staff, lovely kitchen and beautiful garden. I stayed in the 6 bed mixed dorm with the pods and they are fab, they offer some privacy and have hooks and a charging point. Social area/kitchen is locked after 11pm but it keeps the place quiet and respectful, got really good sleep there! Only small locked areas for your stuff but had no issues with security. Thanks for a gorgeous stay!

    Bazpackers Hostel is a relatively short walk from both Inverness’ bus and train stations. The common room is cozily decked out with a fireplace and comfortable seating, the kitchen is well equipped and quite spacious and the sitting/sunroom is light and a nice additional space to chill in if the common room is full. The rooms and bathrooms are clean and spacious. The beds, with privacy curtain, light and USB port are also ample to relax and get a good night’s sleep in.

    Great location, we were in the annex which was fine but not as much atmosphere as the main part. Kitchen could just fit 4 people so if there were a few cooking it would be impossible. Mattresses should be updated soon, bit saggy. Location was amazing, right in the heart of Inverness and we sat by the fire in the main area for a bit and it was lovely.
