Liked: This is a great hostel, the location of it is less than 1 minute from Inverness bus station and about 5 minutes walk from Inverness train station. The kitchen and bathrooms are always spotlessly clean, as are the dorms and lounge room. It is a very friendly apmosphere, home from home and very welcoming. There is a locked storage room and lockers in every dorm, don't forget to bring your own padlock. The free wi fi works well, and there is free tea and coffee. I have stayed at this hostel 3 times now and can't fault it.

Disliked: My only fault with this hostel and almost every other hostel I have stayed in, in Scotland is there is no lift so if you are wheelchair bound you would not be able to get upstaires

Liked: I really enjoyed my stay here. The Hostel is located next to the Bus station, so i's really easy to go on trips. The staff is amazing, they were so nice and always answered all the questions. My room was really clean and there where lockers to keep the important stuff safe.

Disliked: For 50 bed spaces there are only 4 showers and 4 toilets. It worked out quite fine, but sometimes you had to wait for a bit.

Liked: Good location

Disliked: Booked a 4 bed dorm for 4 people. Room was cramped and not big enough to fit 2 bunk beds in. The room smelt of damp and there was mold on the ceiling. The bedding did not smell clean and appeared to be dirty as there were black hairs on the bedding.

Liked: The staff were incredibly friendly. I had mixed up the dates of my booking but they were able to change it at no extra cost. They were really helpful with everything else. The beds were comfortable and the living area was really well equipped and comfortable.

Disliked: It would have been nice to have more plug sockets in the bedroom. There was just one extension lead at the other end of the room, meaning that I couldn't charge my phone overnight. There were also no lights around the beds. When I arrived, people were already asleep and it was difficult to do anything in the room without turning the main light on and waking them up.
