Important Information

Please note: Although we have no curfew, the reception is only open till 11pm, and you are required to check-in by then. For group bookings of 9 or more people made within 30 days the remainder of the amount due will be charged to your credit card 4 weeks prior to arrival. If your booking is made within 4 weeks of arrival the full amount is payable immediately. Should numbers or room selection change, the per person deposit times the number of people who actually travelled will be deducted from the total accommodation charge levied by the hostel. If you are a group and booking through this site, please call us to make sure your whole group can be in the same room, because it's not guaranteed with your booking.

Liked: Overnight parking possibility for free. Near the city centre. Cheap accomodation. Place for meeting with other travellers.

Disliked: Parking during the day - payment. Small kitchen was overcrowded - not enough room, tables and chairs for all the guests during breakfast and supper times. Kitchen is closed between 23 p.m. and 8 a.m. !!! Hostel from outside looks terrible.

23 November 2014 Storm would recommend this property

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.
