Liked: I liked all of it and would use the facilities again. I found the beds comfy and clean and the staff very helpful when I miss laye'd my wallet.

Disliked: Can be a bit noisy when the the doors are opening and closing to the rooms through the night. Hinges on the doors need oiling.

Liked: Kitchen, the room was clean

Disliked: Staff wasn't too pleasant, had to pay extra for internet, no real atmosphere, felt more like staying in a hotel which wasn't what I was looking for, relatively expensive for what you got. I'd suggest staying in a bunkhouse at Aviemore, you get more for your money.

Liked: The place is simply great! All you need and more - large kitchen area, fantastic common room/lounge with plenty of space and very comfy sofas etc. For the hustlers a pool table is available. Proper hot showers and a drying room that actually drys! You can do a lot worse than base yourselves from this hostel!

Disliked: The fact I could spend more time in it!?

Liked: I stayed here with a group of 5 other friends, so we got a 6 person hostel to ourselves and the kitchen facilities were quite nice (multiple burners, dishes and cookware). The hostel is a 3 minute walk from the bus station, and has a pleasant hiking path behind it. Also, about 30 minutes away from the bus station leading you to the cairngorn mountains. It was no five star resort, but it was clean enough and located in a good spot.

Disliked: The showers were warm for about 20 seconds, then freezing, then boiling, then freezing. Not a fun game.
