Accommodating 130 young people aged 16-24 is no easy task, however the hostel was the perfect place for our group as they could spread out, chill and relax after a hard day of workshops and shows. Staff could not have been more helpful and accommodating, with nothing ever seeming too much trouble for them. Rooms and all surrounding areas where spotless, breakfast a great start to the day and a very well equipped self catering kitchen too. We are already looking at dates for 2020 when we can come.

Lovely stay, thanks
A nice place. Clean, tidy, well equipped and just a short walk to town centre
Have a break from all obligations to the rat race by enjoying the peace and tranquillity of days in the countryside.
Stayed for 4 nights with my wife and young baby - very spacious and comfortable family room and we had a great trip. Thank you to all the wardens at Inverness Youth Hostel!
A 20 minute walk from the rail or bus station. Good bike shed. The location takes you to all the places of interest quickly.

Have stayed at Inverness Youth Hostel many times over the years. Wonderful place to stay and central to a wide range of activities in and around Inverness.
Good location of the hostel, good staff. Food choices are limited (being winter...with less demand), but staff tried their best to help within the limitations.
Reasons to visit
Inverness and its surrounding area is steeped in history and no trip to would be complete without a visit to Loch Ness, the largest freshwater loch in the British Isles and home to the elusive 'Nessie'. Cruise on the loch and explore the ruins of Urquhart Castle which stands proudly on its banks, enjoying magnificent views of the surrounding area.
From Clava Cairns to Culloden Battlefield and Inverness Castle with its new viewpoint overlooking the city, you'll never be short of opportunities to connect with the past.
Stroll along the banks of the River Ness and discover the city's fine bars and restaurants or head to the Victorian Market or Eastgate Shopping Centre for a bit of retail therapy.
The Moray Firth is teeming with wildlife and, when the tide is right, local dolphins are often seen swimming close to shore at Chanonry Point on the Black Isle.
The Victorian seaside resort of Nairn is a short drive away and the surrounding countryside plays host to a number of distilleries where you can discover the secrets of Scotland's national drink.
