I was one of 7 booked in at very short note. Fantastic location. Warm, tidy, good facilities. Would certainly recommend. Would definitely come back.

This was my first ever hostel stay solo and I have to say I was over whelmed and would like to express my sincere gratitude. The building itself was comfortable and very clean, kitchen stocked with all equipment one could need, beautifully kept garden, fantastic music (especially liked the music), relaxed lounge area with the most wonderful selection of books. I could tell the staff, who were equally wonderful, truly cared for and looked after the hostel and grounds. P.S - the area is also blooming gorgeous and I could write an essay on that :) Thanks guys

Inveraray is a small hostel situated two minutes' walk from the town centre, so it is both easy to find and in a quiet location. The staff were both helpful and friendly. Excellent self-catering kitchen with a very sociable "island" style counter. The back and front garden are a delightful dining spot in the right conditions, it was raining the day I stayed. I slept in a very cosy four-bed mixed-gender dorm with lots of woodwork in the bunks creating something of semi-enclosed box effect, a brilliant design. I didn't get a key at all, but the dormitory door could simply be bolted from the inside, another clever idea. A new Co-Op branch on the edge of town is a great source of groceries. Although not really competitive pricewise, this is definitely my favourite Scottish hostel so far and Inveraray what they call a hidden gem, being amazingly pretty if relatively hard to reach, which sems to make it a bit undersubscribed and beautifully quiet.
