    It is a hostel suitable for people at different age. The location is perfect, 20 mins walk from the station and the city center. The staff are so professional. The hostel also offers a big and super clean kitchen where coffee and tea are available for free. Rooms, bathroom facilities are fantastic. I would highly recommend this place for the highlands travellers.

    Have stayed at Inverness before. I find it handy for the town and for facilities. Due to railway delays I was late in arriving, but greeted warmly by staff. Being a 90year-old, one of my fellow room mates exchanged his lower bunk for the sole remaining upper bunk. Breakfast was excellent. I was given clear advice on finding the marina for my sail - Inverness - Caledonian Canal - Loch Ness - Loch Linnhe to Dunstaffnage - Spring weather in September!!! I'll use Inverness again.

    I loved staying here so much I came back a second time. It has large comfortable dorms with lockers, well equipped kitchen and facilities, tv room and sitting room, very secure, great staff, easy walk to town However, press button showers that need to be re-pressed every 10-12 seconds are frustrating, all doors are heavy fire doors, including dorms, and are noisy at night, and you need to be able to negotiate stairs to most rooms. And, all age groups are welcome.

    A very clean, mature hostel. I enjoyed the quieter energy of this hostel, feeling more like a hotel than a hostel really. The staff were professional, and the facilities were all clean and pleasant to use. The kitchen was spacious and very well equipped, quite a social kitchen setup. The walk to town is maybe 10mins. I saw plenty of car parking space outside. I enjoyed my stay here, it was a relatively quiet, very relaxed place. For those who like the quiet they even had a quiet lounge room.

    I had a nice weekend-stay in this hostel and would easily enjoyed even longer stay! I stayed in a six-women-dormitory which was clean and comfortable, the only minus is there was only four lockers for six persons. The kitchen-area is amazing! The walk to the centre is not too bad.

    Met all my needs, but the layout didn't really lend itself to meeting fellow travellers. Only real convenient time to meet people is making and eating meals in the kitchen/dining room attached, so get your extravert on there if you want to meet people. The kitchen was very large and made cooking very easy as everything was clear where it goes.

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and the kitchen was very well equipped. The atmosphere is almost sterile, not a great “hang out” hostel. But great for a quiet night’s sleep. Unfortunately the bed was horribly uncomfortable, left my back aching. But overall a decent place to stay.

    Located in a residential area, you have to walk 10 mins to get to any restaurants or shops. It doesn’t feel like a hostel, more like an old school converted to have rooms. Some of the staff were helpful, but others were not the friendliest. I think a continental breakfast cost £7 so we didn’t go.
