Important Information

SYHA is a charity aiming to inspire all, especially young people, to broaden their horizons, gain knowledge and independence through new experiences of adventure and discovery. In support of this aim, all bookings will include a temporary membership fee per person per night which is displayed as an inclusive rate. (Full, existing members of SYHA and HI using this booking engine are not entitled to a membership refund).

Inverness Youth Hostel reception is open 07.00-23.00, with check-in from 15.00 and checkout by 10.00. A night porter is on duty for late check-in to 02.00. Access outside opening hours is by pre-arrangement only.

From the age of 5 to 15 years, young people must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and may be accommodated in a single-gendered shared room with the parent or guardian and other guests, at the discretion and responsibility of the parent or guardian. The young person/people, the parent/guardian and the other occupants of the room must be of the same gender.

SYHA advise that additional notice be given to the destination youth hostel when travelling with children, to ensure that suitable accommodation is available. Contact details can be found on your booking confirmation.

Parties with young children (under 5 years) will only be accommodated in designated family rooms, where available. There is no capacity for extra beds or cots in a shared dormitory or private accommodation.

Family Holiday

Liked: Just 10 min walk from the city centre.

Disliked: Everything is old. Furnitures are damaged, lights do not work but are not replaced. Everything looks like decaying, like a hostel from 10 years ago which has not been properly mantained. Internet is expensive, instead of free (the way it hould be nowadays). Everything must be paid (e.g. linen, shampoo....). Not comming back. Really not worth the money for families.
