    Overall, good hostel, from what I understand it seems to be a bit new. The hostel is spacious and clean, with a great location right next to the main area of Inverness. The way that this hostel really could improve itself is with the WiFi. It really is a bit ridiculous to have insecure wifi networks these days, which makes me nervous to connect to it, but also the speed is really slow. Even if you purchase the "Pound a Day Premium" wifi, I didn't notice much improvement in the connection

    Pros: Great location, good facilities (kitchen to small tho) and super clean. Cons: lack of Hostel vibes, not atmosphere at all (unless you got to their bar which is around the corner) and not any remarkable when it comes to interaction with the staff. I wasn’t looking for a party place, but still I was expecting some Hostel life going on. Might be a great place for groups looking for a place to spend the night.

    Smallest kitchen I have ever seen, nearly impossible to cook in there. Toilets do not flush well. No social atmosphere. Would have wished there to be female only doorms. Quite expensive. Annoying with showers where you have to push a button and can’t adjust the temperature. Great location next to bus and train station. Large bathrooms. Newly renovated.

    Hostel has a good location, was clean, had nice bathroom facilities. But there was something 'off' in the atmosphere. It wasn't as friendly as most hostels I've stayed at. It started as reception guy scolded me for extending my card toward him to pay my balance (yes, he could steal my data, as he said, but why not just hand me device? Starting with 'I could rip you off' not good first impression) We all breathed a sigh of relief when we left but aren't totally sure why. Would not stay again.
