Inverness Tourist Hostel

24 Rose Street


Inverness provides an excellent base to explore the highlands and islands of Scotland. The city has many attractions, including the museum and art gallery, Inverness Castle (with the castle garrison encounter exhibition) and of course the legendary Loch Ness monster around the corner! Inverness is also home to some of the best award-winning live music bars in Scotland as well as restaurants providing amazing food and value.

For all you Outlander fans, Culloden battlefield and the Clava Cairns (inspiration for Craigh na Dun) are a short bus ride away. There are also many tours offered by various companies that explore Inverness, Loch Ness, Glen Affric and many other places of interest.

We have four-, six-, eight- and 10-bed mixed dorm rooms, each with new, comfortable mattresses. There’s hot water 24/7 because of our modern electric showers.

We have a fully equipped kitchen and there’s free tea, coffee, milk and sugar all day.

Our comfortable common room features a 42-inch plasma TV. Come play our piano or strum on our guitar – we love musicians!

Reception is open until 11pm but there’s no curfew! Come and go as you please!
