A cheap price and a friendly atmosphere doesn't compensate the problems this hostel has. Rooms are small, no space for luggages. Beds look untidy and they don't have any light or power outlet, which is super annoying. There was a single power outlet with an extensiom cord, but it wasn't close to my bed, so I couldnt use my phone while charging it. The shower could do with some renovation aswell and more importantly, it needs a sort of changing space, cause as it is, you either change in the shower, risking to soak the clothes, or you change outside where people can see you. Price is cheap but there are other cheap hostels in Inverness that are more modern and cleaner.
I actually don't get till now how people are giving them 8 and 9 or even 6 in their reviews ,,, this place is just a trash, messy, untidy, not clean at all ,, it only deserves to be shut because it is not suitable for any human being being in there ,, Me and my friends booked with them in july a mixed room for 4 adults in a room for 6 and it was the worst experience ever, i believe that the bed sheets were not changed since the opening of the hostel!! , we stayed for 2 nights during these 2 nights 4 different people checked in and out on these beds with the same bed sheets and covers !!! Can u imagine that ??!! Talking about the toilets and the showers which happened ti be very small, messy and unclean, i found 3 coackrashes 1 in the room and 2 innthe showers which let me never used neither the toilet nor the showers again!! This place is not healthy P.s. attached another review from someone who stayed in june and had the same bad experience as ours !!…
The staff were friendly and helpful and it has a nice atmosphere. They have a locker to store valuables free of charge. The shower water wasn't particularly hot and the room was quite small and packed and too warm. It was good for one night.
Good value for the price. Location is great, just a few minutes walk from the city centre! Parking facilities are ok, if you're not afraid of backing out of a tight spot past other cars. Staff was friendly, security is good. They lock the door in the evening so not just anyone can walk in. Room was ok, I was lucky there were only 4 people in the 6 people dorm, cause I wouldn't have known where to place my bags if there were more of us. They could do with some extra power outlets, especially for the top bunks. All in all a good stay!
The hostel is central and staff is helpful and friendly. They even sent my forgotten pajamas to me via mail! :) The interiors are nicely decorated and there's plenty of room to lounge about and meet other people. Me and my friend stayed in one of the female dorms. While spotlessly clean, the rooms were extremely hot and quite small for 6 people + bags. There were also no plugs apart from an extension lead with 6 plugs on it, a bit uncomfortable for that many people and especially for guests sleeping in upper bunks. All in all no major issues, we only stayed one night after all, but you might want to consider these points if staying longer.
