    Was very quiet when we were there in January, but that is expected. Had a very good kitchen and lounge area to spend time instead of staying in the room! Around the hostel there isn’t much, but it’s only a 10 minute walk into the middle of Inverness!

    GREAT location! Just a short walk from the city center nestled within an adorable neighborhood. The private room was large and had a private bathroom and was perfect for our stay. It was clean, convenient, and very serviceable for a few nights' stay! Would recommend.

    Hostel is about a 20 minute walk from city, so not ideal. If you are looking for a fun environment or to meet people, this isn't the place. Most people in the hostel I saw looked either still in highschool or over 60 years old and a few families. I was only there to do a day tour to Skye so it was fine for me for a few nights. Huge industrial sized kitchen to cook in and comfortable beds and clean bathrooms.

    The whole place smelt like vomit. We rented a private twin room (for £50!!) and it smelt like vomit and s**t and there were stains all over the bedroom ceiling. The hobs in the kitchen we're crap, and it took 25 minutes to boil a pan of water. It was extremely busy so once you'd spent an hour boiling pasta there was nowhere to sit in the dining room and not enough cutlery to eat with. Definitely not staying here again and definitely not worth £50!
