Liked: I had booked private apartment with 4 beds . And to my surprise it was a fully furnished 1BHK house with all facilities just for 20£ per person. It was located just in front of Ness river which makes a great view during evening. Just 3 min walk to tain and 5 to Bus station. Most of the tours depart from Inverness visitor centre which is 2 min walk. I definitely recommend this hostel for budget travellers :-)

Liked: Great location by the river and near the castle. TV and very good heating in the room. Towels available at no extra cost. Since there was no reception or anyone to check up on you, the 11:30am check out was pretty relaxed - so didn't feel like we had to rush to be out, we just took as long as we liked.

Disliked: Wasn't really any reception, nor was it clear who worked there. The guy who did check us in and show us our room seemed to have no local knowledge. We went for New Year's Eve and had read about the free concert (Red Hot Highland Fling), however the guy working seemed to have no clue that there would even be fireworks for the New Year, let alone anything bigger.

Liked: Very easy to reach from the train and bus station but not in the middle of the city so it's nice and quiet - at least in the apartment we rented. The apartment itself was very spacious and equipment provided was adequate. Pricewise it was even comparable to sleeping in the dorms but with the added advantage of a private apartment. All in all an enjoyable stay even though there were some minor issues.

Disliked: The apartment is a bit run-down and has seen many people staying in it over the years without much renovation work. There were minor issues like the fridge running constantly, the door lock not making too safe an impression (leaning hard against it might just gain you entry...), some hinges being worn-out and previous guests weren't too keen on giving the oven a good scrub. Comparing it to other accommodations on our trip it certainly wasn't the best in terms of bang/quid.

Liked: It was cheap and quiet and situated in a great location with an excellent view.

Disliked: In the dorm room none of the beds had a night lamp, which is annoying when several people with different sleeping patters share a room. Also there where hardly any sockets in the room to charge your phone with.

Liked: Perfect location Hot showers Ive stayed in nicer places and some places not as nice

Disliked: Being in the "annex"- not very roomy, at a push even with two in the kitchen. Bathrooms a squeeze too! I think there should be a reduced rate for those put in the annex. Only clean bedding given was a pillow case and duvet cover, do the mattress covers get changed frequently? hmmm was going to opt for the top bunk but quite a few hairs on mattress. Room i shared smelt really badly (by the way the double glazed pane of glass in the window is shot, the outer pane is none existant). "Annex" could do with some tlc! "Annex" really reminded me of dire student digs.

Liked: The location is perfect, the hostel is in a nice, cosy, old building, and has a very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. There's a really homely common room, with a laptop you can use, also free wifi everywhere, there's also a little kitchen with free tea, coffee and milk which was great. There's tellys in the private rooms which is really nice. The room was cosy with a good sized bed. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this relaxed, cosy, homely hostel.

Disliked: Nothing, everything was great.
