The Inverness Student Hotel has a terrific outlook over the river and the city to the hills beyond. It's a cute building with real character and a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Our comfortable dormitory rooms have between 5 and 10 beds in each room that come complete with full bedding and 2 comfy pillows! We have a spacious common room with big Victorian style windows that offer stunning views over the River Ness. It is a great place to meet like minded travelers, whilst enjoying all the free tea, coffee and hot chocolate you can drink! You can also relax in front of our beautiful real fire and take advantage of our FREE WiFi. The Student Hotel staff are always very friendly and approachable. We can help you book your tours, recommend places to visit and most importantly we know the hidden gems of the city to ensure you a memorable time in Inverness. We can arrange bike rental and will send you on your way with free maps to help you discover the magnificent beauty that is....Loch Ness! If you do see Nessie, don't forget to mention that you're staying with us when you talk to the press!Also, if you are completing the Great Glen Way and need a bed to rest your weary legs then you are in luck as we are only 100m metres away from the finish line. Hurrah!! We are also only 10 minutes walk from the Train and Bus Station and a quick 5 minutes walk into the town centre.

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.
