This is a good place for a single, couple or group to stay, with single, double and bigger rooms. There's free tea, coffee, milk, sugar, etc and a kitchen to do your own meals if you want. There's a pleasant dining area where you can chat with other travellers . It's also close to the town centre, with lots of cafes and bars nearby. There's safe storage for luggage and bikes too. They were particularly helpful when I found I'd left a couple of necklaces behind, in my haste to catch my train. After a quick email exchange I sent Emmanuel a self-addressed envelope and my jewellery was promptly returned - many thanks.
Friendly, clean and a good room, convenient for city centre and also for us to be able to leave very early morning. Just thought that 106.80 was expensive for 1 night stay excluding breakfast ( not that we would have been there for breakfast) and shared bathroom. Partner struggled to sleep due to noise from lounge.
We stayed here for one night in a private room to kick off our NC500 trip. Probably the most spotless place we stayed in during the whole trip with good covid measures in place. The upstairs shower room was also spotless. The kitchen was well stocked with utensils/appliances etc. It would be great to come back here under non-covid circumstances to properly enjoy the hostel and garden.
I had booked a dorm but was upgraded to a private room, presumably as part of the CV-19 response. The room was more like a hotel room than a hostel - double bed, towels, tv etc. The room, bathroom, and kitchen were all spotlessly clean and the location is perfect to explore Inverness.
Location is great. It right in front of Inverness Castle, right besides where the Great Glen Way starts (or ends). It is far enough and close enough to the centre of the city that you can have a nice touristy short walk there. I loved the facilities. The bunk beds are in sort of a box with a curtain so you get much privacy. They have a small shelf in each capsule so you can put your phone while charging or anything you want to keep close. They also have a strongbox that you can program with your own security code and a place to leave your bags in the room. The thing I didn’t like about the room is that it can get really really hot. The bathrooms are very nice and clean. There is a very cozy living room with a fireplace and some nice couches. It has an amazing Victorian style. It also has a very nice garden with an amazing view! The kitchen has what you would need to cook and there’s even a small free food area. Tea and coffee are free and unlimited. There is no breakfast included but you can buy to cook or just go to a restaurant. The staff is always very friendly. They help you in any way they can. The manager knows a great deal about the city and it’s surroundings as well as it’s history and will always be happy to point you to interesting places. I also like that they encourage customers to respect other people’s stay by not being noisy nor arriving too late. This does not mean they won’t let you go out or anything but they will remind you that there’s more people staying there. When I go to Inverness again, I will certainly stay there.…
