Property Description

Very popular with outdoor enthusiasts, the four star VisitScotland accredited Aviemore Youth Hostel is the perfect base for activity groups, families and individual travellers looking for great value accommodation and all year-round adventure.

The hostel offers guests a wide range of comfortable shared and private rooms, a bright and spacious lounge area with woodland and mountain views, TV and pool table. Guests can opt for a wee breakfast which is served in the dining room or take advantage of the large self-catering kitchen. Other facilities include free WiFi, an excellent drying room, laundry, private lockers, secure bike storage and ample onsite parking.

The hostel also hosts a Scottish Natural Heritage visitor centre, with Peregrine nestcam and helpful information about Craigellachie National Nature Reserve.

Surrounded by lush woodland, the hostel sits in the heart of the vast Cairngorms National Park but is just a short walk from Aviemore’s bustling town centre.

An all year round resort, local activities include hillwalking, climbing, snowsports, mountain biking, pony trekking, watersports and fishing. Most activities take place on the Rothiemurchus Estate, a fabulous area with many easy paths through the Caledonian Pine Forest. The Scottish Whisky Trail is nearby, as is Landmark Forest Adventure Park, Highland Wildlife Park, Loch Garten RSPB and Strathspey Steam Railway.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.

Such an amazing stay at this hostel. So clean and friendly, also very low key which we enjoyed. Amazing communal space- we had a ball with the pool table! The only thing I might add is perhaps putting a shelf in the female showers for washing products, but other than that, this was a phenomenal stay and I would absolutely stay here again! Thanks to the amazing team who made sure our party stayed together as we were on separate bookings. We love this hostel!

Excellent hostel. Spacious with well equipped kitchen. Very clean. Very close to the town and also a lovely nature reserve walk out the back. My only criticism is that the mattresses are cheap and uncomfortable with springs poking through. Uncomfortable for us slimmer folk. I had to sleep on my fleece. Either buy memory foam ones, better quality sprung ones, or at least put thick mattress toppers on. A comfortable bed is a key need, and the price warrants that.
