Sehr nettes Personal, aber leider wurden direkt neben unserem Zimmer andere Zimmer renoviert und der Flur roch dadurch ziemlich unangenehm und war bisweilen durch den Baustaub vernebelt. Küche war ok, viele Gaskochplatten, aber leider waren die Öfen nicht ganz so funktionabel (türen schlossen nicht wirklich). Die Einrichtung könnte etwas neuer sein, aber alles war sauber (Bettwäsche und Handtücher vorhanden). Perfekte Lage, circa 5-10 Minuten Fußweg in die Innenstadt, aber trotzdem ruhig.

Enjoyed my stay in the large Inverness hostel. Self-catering kitchen, spotless. Food storage system, orderly and well maintained. Co-visitors, friendly; good conversations. Front desk people, helpful with city directions. Walks thru neighborhood near hostel, charming; I like seeing typical homes (beautiful gardens). I heard nearby school bagpipe and drum band practicing, watched from parking lot; definitely understand why they practice outside. Local experiences like enhance travel memories.

We think that the beds are really bad and uncomfortable. The family room was not clean especially the bath. There was mold on all walls in the family room which caused asthma at our son. The self catering kitchen was not clean. The fridges were packed full and nobody posted his name on the food or the date of departure and we had the feeling that the fridges were not checked up daily because there was bad food in it. We stayed in a lot of youth hostels in Scotland and this was the worst one.
