Welcome to our hostel

Our small, cosy hostel in the historic town of Inveraray, on the western shore of Loch Fyne, is in a superb location for exploring Scotland’s Southern Highlands and Islands, and the perfect choice of accommodation for all independent holidaymakers who cherish an opportunity to socialise with other guests.

The communal spaces and affable staff at Inveraray Hostel promote a convivial, cooperative atmosphere where travellers from many different backgrounds have a chance to meet, exchange ideas and stories, and relax in an informal environment.

We offer budget-friendly, basic but comfortable accommodation in private rooms as well as shared dormitories, a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and wee lounge, and a lovely garden complete with picnic tables!

Inveraray is less than an hour and a half’s drive from Glasgow airport and boasts a fine range of shops, pubs and eateries, as well as several tourist attractions well worth visiting, including a magnificent 18th century castle set in wooded grounds. There are nearby woodland walks where you might spot red squirrels and roe deer, and, not too far away, are mountains for the determined hill walker. Access points for Munros in the Arrochar Alps, Glencoe and the Trossachs can be easily reached by car.

Inveraray Hostel is an ideal place to stay for solo travellers, couples, families and small groups; walkers, cyclists, bikers and backpackers, sight-seers, adventurers and escapists…

A warm welcome to you all!

Please check-in from 15.30 to 21.30. Please Check out by 10. Guests may access the hostel during the day but we do need to clean. We kindly ask all guests to vacate the hostel by 10 for a couple of hours to allow for cleaning & routine maintenance, thank you!

Great kitchen, best hostel kitchen I've used. So very clean! Lots of good quality utensils/crockery etc, tea coffee and milk available, plenty of seating. Excellent location. Good parking. Relaxed and quiet. On the negative side, we found the hostel bedroom far too hot even with the radiator off (I even switched off the radiator in the corridor!).

Es ist wirklich eine sehr kleine Jugendherberge, dass hat mich erstmal überrascht. Auch das man von 10-1 raus muss wegen putzen und in keiner Lounge bleiben kann wie ich das in den vorherigen Hostels hatte, falls es regnet. Die Küche ist super und es ist schön ruhig durch die kleine Grösse des Hostels. Das Internet ist dementsprechend auch super.

It is a joy to have friendly, sociable people stay at the hostel - it is not only intrinsic to helping us maintain a pleasant atmosphere, but reminds everyone why hostels are important and why, indeed, we chose to run one! We're very glad that you chose to stay with us & seem to have enjoyed it. Come back anytime!
