I stayed at Bazpackers initially for the location, but once I checked in and got settled, I was delighted to find out how calm and quiet it was. My room was super comfortable and had the best view of Inverness Castle and the River Ness. Everything was clean and simple, and the kitchen had everything I needed for a night...

This location is hard to beat! Nestled at the foot of the castle with river views, our apartment rental had lots of space. However, the beds were forgettable and the heat took about half the night to really turn on. Overall, this was a good experience.

We booked a room in the hostel for 4 and got assigned an "apartment". It was a separate apartment below the main hostel building with kitchen, living room, bathroom and a bedroom with 2 bunkbeds. It was a great stay.

It is an amazing hostel, simple and clean. Right at the city centre and beside the Inverness Castle, super convenient to go to restaurants, supermarkets and bus stations nearby. Bathroom is clean, but without hair dryer or towels provided. Bed is very comfortable, although we originally booked twin beds but instead gave us a double bed. It would also be...

Cosy, clean and very close to City centre. You can cook your meals there. Comfortable beds and night tables in the rooms. Take your lock and towels, they don't provide any. Nice common area to have a drink, read or chat.

This was a great hostel located right on the river with beautiful views. Super welcoming with a warm and cozy fireplace and an inviting common area where you can meet other travellers if you want, or just hang out. The staff was great, always really friendly, helpful and were excellent at recommending things to do and places to see. Bathrooms...

The hostel makes the most of a small space but I felt I got value for money. It has been thoughfully put together, and had a lot of nice touches for me. The owner is obviously 'green'. They have put in LED lighting, use ecover products, and have chosen furniture and fittings that will last. It is very user friendly,...
