Nice and central to city centre. Staff really friendly and very helpful. Bathrooms are clean. Rooms are nice and clean but there was just a damp smell in the room. But overall Nice hostel. Would recommend it to anyone needing a stop over in inverness .

The hostels location is perfect, right next to the castle and the beds were clean and mattress was springy. Toilets were a little cramped for a tall guy like me (6.0) I'd recommend this hostel to others! The thing I didn't like (nothing that the hostel has control of ) - Had a Chinese Family live next to us. At...

I stayed in this hostel with one of my friends and we had an amazing experience! The hostel staff is very friendly and caring. They respond to whatever you need immediately and are always there to help you out with anything. The rooms had an amazing view of the river ness, the Inverness castle and the At. Andrews cathedral.

The hostel is well located, you can see the river Ness from the bedrooms and it isn't far from the city centre. The hostel is basic, the bathrooms are clean and the bedrooms are small yet clean and well-appointed. A good place to stay the night and to make new friends! PS: go have a pint at the pub downstairs!

If you are looking for a hostel that's friendly, warm, and cozy where you'll make lifelong friends this is the place! The staff is friendly and engaging, the common area is superb, and the location top notch. I highly recommend staying here if you're in Inverness. Bazpackers is everything a great hostel should be!

I recently stayed here with my boyfriend. We had a private room upstairs. The entire hallway smelled of mold. The bathroom had black mold all over the ceiling. Beds were comfy surprisingly. Wouldn't stay here again unless I was desperate.

We stayed here in a private room. Staff was friendly. Room was clean, comfortable, had good pillows, & a great location. Bathroom near our room was shared but I never had to wait to use it- nothing special but clean. Nice to have the shared kitchen to store any leftovers we brought back. Lack of free parking was a negative...

Comfy rooms, very friendly staff. Bathroom was a no go.. Female and male showers were together. Very weird. Free wifi was a plus and the location was also very beautiful. Wouldn't recommend it but wouldn't NOT recommend it either.

The hostel is located quite near to the castle, takes about 8 minutes to walk from High Street. Standard 8ppl dorm was quiet and clean and beds were nice. Bathroom in the corridor is unisex. The common area is really cosy but I have to say that the staff didn't make me feel welcome. Their office was in the corner...

Hi! I have good experience with this hostel. Even at my first night when I changes room to another and at morning back to my booked, I felt there very comfy(I hope that the couple from Spain enjoyed evening:) ). There are strange moment, that this hostel is divided in two parts - few rooms are at the another building....
