    TOO MANY BUS PARTIES WITH UNEXPERIENCED CLIQUES AND INEXPERIENCED TRAVELLERS.Loud ,noisy and not much fun

    Unique Quality: The management seemed to find the party groups fun whilst the individuals were somehow a problem for not joining in . they need a serious rethink

    MacBackpackers Inverness Hostel

    by

    This is part of the MacBackpackers network of hostels - so if you like them you'll love this one too.

    Been around for years - this independent hostel started life poaching business from the then Youth Hostel opposite. Now the SYHA have moved to a new site, and other independent hostels have opened up in town nearer the train / coach stations.

    But who cares? This hostel is quiet one minute then packed the next, as three tour buses pull up and disgorge there contents of cheery revellers.

    Its a small, compact hostel. If you want to join a bus tour group - do so quickly - become part of the lively, happy throng - ohterwise it can be very frustrating - and you will have to go with their flow, sleep when they want, or not.

    Unique Quality: The location is nice, on a slight escarpment overlooking the river. The building is full of character, and decorated in the usual style, so very "student" feeling - plus plants and use of colour - not retaining the original buildings character.

    Its about a 10 minute walk, through town to the hostel - and upwards - so maybe refresh at Macdonalds on the way. You have to walk past 3 other hostels on the way!

    Breakfast service is continental style - ideal for a quick, no fuss start. I think its 1.50 still.

    If you can get a quiet (no tour bus) night here - do - its good - but otherwise you will feel like the padding - filling up the edges.

    Oh, btw - the "castle" is a modern construct and not worth getting excited about.

    Directions: Walk up Castle Street - Macdonalds on your left, town hall and Tourist Info on your right.
    At fork in road, take the left (technically straight on). Hostel is on right hand side, beyond Baz Backpackers Hostel (also good).
