The hostel is well located, you can see the river Ness from the bedrooms and it isn't far from the city centre. The hostel is basic, the bathrooms are clean and the bedrooms are small yet clean and well-appointed. A good place to stay the night and to make new friends! PS: go have a pint at the pub downstairs!

If you are looking for a hostel that's friendly, warm, and cozy where you'll make lifelong friends this is the place! The staff is friendly and engaging, the common area is superb, and the location top notch. I highly recommend staying here if you're in Inverness. Bazpackers is everything a great hostel should be!

I recently stayed here with my boyfriend. We had a private room upstairs. The entire hallway smelled of mold. The bathroom had black mold all over the ceiling. Beds were comfy surprisingly. Wouldn't stay here again unless I was desperate.

We stayed here in a private room. Staff was friendly. Room was clean, comfortable, had good pillows, & a great location. Bathroom near our room was shared but I never had to wait to use it- nothing special but clean. Nice to have the shared kitchen to store any leftovers we brought back. Lack of free parking was a negative...

Comfy rooms, very friendly staff. Bathroom was a no go.. Female and male showers were together. Very weird. Free wifi was a plus and the location was also very beautiful. Wouldn't recommend it but wouldn't NOT recommend it either.

The hostel is located quite near to the castle, takes about 8 minutes to walk from High Street. Standard 8ppl dorm was quiet and clean and beds were nice. Bathroom in the corridor is unisex. The common area is really cosy but I have to say that the staff didn't make me feel welcome. Their office was in the corner...

Hi! I have good experience with this hostel. Even at my first night when I changes room to another and at morning back to my booked, I felt there very comfy(I hope that the couple from Spain enjoyed evening:) ). There are strange moment, that this hostel is divided in two parts - few rooms are at the another building....

The hostel is pretty well situated not in the very centre of town but not far either. Just nice and quiet area. Very easy to get anywhere from there. Staff were friendly and the showers etc was is good order too. Glad we choose it

Loved the ambiance and how Bazpackers was conveniently located. Also had a great kitchen and hangout room, also back yard for hanging out and grilling. I traveled by bicycle and was able to leave my bike in the garden--outdoors.

My 4 friends and I stayed in the apartment of the hostel, it had a great location as it was a 10-15 minute walk to the train station and near the main part of town. Would highly recommend it if you are on a budget and are looking for good value/location.
