Good, Cheap accommodation!

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 5, 2011

We spent our 2 year anniversary at the Bazpackers, renting one of their twin rooms - very nice, comfortable beds, basic furnishings, and a pretty nice view over the river - all for a good, low price. Couldn't ask for more :)

Unique Quality: Excellent location - not too close to the center of town (there are closer hostels), but right next to the castle, and no more than 5 minutes walk to almost anywhere in the center.

Directions: Go up past the castle, its behind the pub ahlfway up the street.

spent a fun two nights here. It was handy for everything and had good facilities. Although small it had a student flat appeal where you mixed and made contact easily.

Unique Quality: right beside castle and handy for shops and the happening pubs

One of the better places to stay in Inverness.

Surprisingly, this place is quite good. the staff may prove ellusive, and it may feel like a private house, a bit worn and carpets threadbare - but for the price wht can you expect!!

It has a nice conservatory and good location, on an escarpment over looking the river. (Its just nearer town than the MacBackpackers Hostel - also reviewed here on VT).

I'm getting a bit stuffy in my old age and tending to avoid city hostels in peak season, if possible, because I do not drink and nearly all hostellers do.

But I would recommend this hostel to people - assuming Barry is still running it. Check the Blue Hostel Guide - if its listed in there - good! Go for it.

Unique Quality: Small, cosy house, beside a nice bar.

Great location, a bit out of the central street but in town centre, 3 minutes from Tourist Info and High Street.

Smaller than other hostels in town - your choice!

Has a nice chill out area and small conservatory.
Kitchen is small, but fine - will save you money!

See Blue Hostels Guide

Directions: As for MacBackpackers Hostel, head up Castle Street, Macdonalds on your left. At first traffic lights and fork in road, take left (ie straight on) road and hostel is then on rhs, beyond the pub.
