    Sweet hostal! The manager is a total character and brings a great sense of joy and community to the place. The kitchen is spacious and there are instruments, movies, books and video games in the common area. The building has a cozy, home-y feel to it, and the beds are comfortable. Definitely my favorite place to stay in Inverness.

    Donald was of great help...Some people might find him too straight forward, but he was just being to the point and extremely helpful...! The location of the hostel is unbeatable !! The rooms can be a bit low key, but then we were only in there to sleep and were out most of the time.... Excellent value for money and overall a great place to stay!!

    Inverness Tourist Hostel really surprised me! It seems rough at first but it is built to be social and its in a pretty good spot. Met some great people and really enjoyed my stay, i would've stayed longer if I could have.

    Hostel was spacious, common room was great, location was great. Beds were not comfortable, bathrooms were not very clean. I think a big issue was that they were short staffed and the staff members were overworked.

    The hostel was nice, but there were a few things that could have been better. The parking situation was difficult, there was no free coffee/tea in the morning as advertised, the rooms were more crowded than other hostels I’ve been to, and the staff was always hard to find and a bit rude. That said, it was a fine place to crash for a night.

    Hostel was pretty worn done, holes in the floor and mattresses and duvets were pretty bad. The rooms are tiny, it’s difficult movingOnly one of the showers runs hot too. You have to put a deposit down for keys. We had a big group so needed three keys which was £30 deposit. I was told it would be refunded when we handed the keys back in. Now been told it’ll be 2 weeks before it’s returned. For no reason. I wouldn’t stay here again. We had friends in the Black Isle Hostel and it was really nice

    I found this hostel to be horrifying. There were bed bugs which got in my hair and and gave me a rash all over my body. The person on the bed above me was literally doing drugs! I couldn’t use the blanket because it was covered in so much mould that at first glance I thought it was the duvet pattern! Foul bathrooms. I got no sleep, I was disturbed, i was so upset that I had to go all the way back to a different hostel where I knew I would be safe. I wasn’t even given a refund.
