Decent hostel, stayed in a 6 bed dorm, which the beds were great and very comfortable, good areas to surf the net, enjoyed some games of pool and staff were nice and helpful. The cons to this hostel, seemed to be a lack of pans (or I or my brother couldn't find them) and general cooking implements to use, not...

Two plug sockets in a 6 bunk room. And finding sockets almost impossible. Why not put some in room? Its a brand new hostel. No lockers in room. Outside the doors from reception. Just 6. Not good enough. Too few showers. Two cubicles for 6 rooms. WiFi near impossible but its remote so u kind of expect it. Plus side......

Stayed here on a weekend trip with friends. The hostel was friendly, comfortable with great facilities. Unfortunately, the hostel was noisy on the night we stayed and I was awoken by slamming doors. I would still recommend it as the facilities and location was great.

We visited the aviemore youth hostel while attending the 20th anniversary thunder in the glens rally and ride out. It was not our first choice as we usually go for hotels but we started looking for accommodation in January 2016 and everywhere except the youth hostel was fully booked. We were lucky they had a 4 bed dorm available so...

We stayed in a family room with two bunk beds. The room was quite small and basic and the showers were communal with two in a room. They provided us with lots of booklets about the area and had lots of discounts for activities. It was on a main road which wasn't too far from restaurants and a few shops....

I stayed here a few weeks ago while I was participating in a nearby course. I enjoyed my stay with nice shower facilities and comfy beds (for a youth hostel anyway!). I enjoyed talking to many people who were also staying in the hostel as the communal dining and seating areas allowed me to do this. Kitchen facilities were of...

We stayed just one night in this youth hostel. The room was a large twin, with wash basin. the room was clean and the beds were really comfortable. We had the continental breakfast which cost extra to the room. There was plenty of choice- cereals, breads, meat and cheese, fruit, fruit juice, tea and coffee.

We stayed in a family room for four, which consisted of two bunk beds. The room was rather small with no place to keep or hang clothes but it did have a wash hand basin.

This modern, clean and accessible hostel is very comfortable. Good kitchen facilities and several places to sit and relax. Free wifi, though the provision of broadband in rural areas is never good or reliable - that's not the fault of the hostel. We were two adults but there were family groups in the hostel and it seemed an excellent choice...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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 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. ... more   less
