Inveraray Hostel

Our small, welcoming hostel in the historic town of Inveraray, on the western shore of Loch Fyne, is in a superb location for exploring Scotland’s Southern Highlands and Islands, and the perfect choice of accommodation for all independent holidaymakers who cherish an opportunity to socialise with other guests.

The communal spaces and affable staff at Inveraray Hostel promote a convivial, cooperative atmosphere where travellers from many different backgrounds have a chance to meet, exchange ideas and stories, and relax in an informal environment.

We offer budget-friendly, basic but comfortable accommodation in private rooms as well as shared dormitories, a well-equipped kitchen, dining area and wee lounge, and a lovely garden complete with picnic tables! Guests have daytime access to the hostel, use of a drying room and bike shed, free WIFI and complimentary tea and coffee. We also offer a continental breakfast and towels are available to hire.

Inveraray is less than an hour and a half’s drive from Glasgow airport and boasts a fine range of shops, pubs and eateries, as well as several tourist attractions well worth visiting, including a magnificent 18th century castle set in wooded grounds. There are nearby woodland walks where you might spot red squirrels and roe deer, and, not too far away, are mountains for the determined hill walker. Access points for Munros in the Arrochar Alps, Glencoe and the Trossachs can be easily reached by car.

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.
