I am no stranger to youth hostels, having stayed in them for four decades, and was looking forward to visiting Aviemore hostel for the first time. I wanted a private room (travelling alone on a work trip), and while I baulked a little at £37...More

Stayed for one night. Easy to park and had a place to store a bike. Facilities were good - we self catered and had all the things needed. Our room was functional, two single beds (quite narrow) and a set of bunk beds. We all...More

The youth hostel had everything you needed in terms of the rooms and wash facilities they were all as you would expect from a youth hostel. It is on the edge of Aviemore just 5-10 mins walk from the pubs. All was great except one...More

While I didn't like aviemore at all (it's a pretentious ski town), this hostel was quite nice. It's a bit out of town, like 10 mins walk down the main road. But worth it. It's a little secluded in this wooded area so feels like...More

About
Description
Surrounded by woodland, our youth hostel is situated on the boundary of the Cairngorms National Park, a short walk from Aviemore town centre and its bustling nightlife. The youth hostel itself is extremely More peaceful, with great facilities. We are also ideally located for many outdoor activities year-round, such as snowsports, watersports and mountain biking. Most activities take place in the nearby Rothiemurchus Estate or on the Cairngorm mountain range. The area itself is host to a diverse range of wildlife, everything from red squirrels, deer, capercaillie, eagles and arctic hares. Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding. Less
