Il manquait des poubelles dans les sanitaires. Dommage de ne pas pouvoir choisir son lit dans les dortoirs (position haute ou basse). sinon très bien.

Wir waren in einem Dorm mit 6 Betten - allerdings gab es nur 4 Schließfächer... etwas unpraktisch wenn 5 In dem Zimmer gleichzeitig sind. Sonst alles super

Très grande auberge propre et bien aménagée. Seul point négatif : un groupe de jeunes étudiants criaient de 22h à 1h du matin et jamais l'employé de la réception n'est allé les avertir de cesser de crier pour les gens qui dormaient. Assez déplaisant! Les jeunes étudiants étaient à l'entrée devant la réception et l'employé n'a jamais rien dit. J'ai dû me réveiller à 12h30 AM pour aller avertir des jeunes qui criaient en jouant avec leur ballon de soccer...

We booked a family room. The room was spacious and clean. The toilet and shower rooms weren't very far from our room. The hostel had all the facilities we needed. The kitchen and dining room were very spacious. Excellent facilities. I have nothing negative to say about the hostel. If we were to visit Inverness again, we will definitely stay here again. It was a pleasant stay.
