Decent building, poor staffing
Kitchen was well equipped and the facilities were pretty clean. Desk not staffed 24 hours. Asked the staff for the door code for the day and they said they didn't know what it would be yet at 9 am, they ended up not changing it that day, but if they had changed it, there would have been no way to get in after the desk was closed. Only three showers and four toilets for whole building. No laundry. Came back at night and there was only one bed available in our room when we reserved two, had to double up on a twin bed. We couldn't ask the desk about it because the desk was closed.

Filthy and Unfriendly staffs
We are visitors from London and booked the rooms for 2 nights at Inverness Tourist Hostel, 24 Rose Street as we saw in a booking website as its rating is 80% positive reviews saying that the rooms are clean. However, when we arrived, we found that the rooms are filthy, they didn't change the bed sheets as we saw hairs and chocolate stain on our bedding and all beds are full of dust. The floor is dirty. There is mold on the wall near our beds. The windows cannot be closed. The shower areas are dirty. Moreover, we can see food on the kitchen floor. We took some photos as a proof. We think this place is full of germs and may cause disease. Therefore we decide to find the new hotel for us. As we informed the reception that the rooms are not what we expected, they are not clean like in the website and review. The hostel's reception doesn't accept that the rooms are filthy and told us that there is no refund except for 72 hours cancellation. So we didn't get any refund for 2 nights while we have to pay for new hotel at higher rates because we didn't book other hotel in advance.

No heat in room, dirty sheets, smelly/dirty kitchen
the pictures are deceiving, as the kitchen is really rundown, there was no toilet paper anywhere for the first day we were there, the showers seems to haven't been cleaned in ages as well as the fitted sheets and comforters on the beds. the only great thing about this place is its location because it is so close to the bus station.
not impressed
  The owner talks with the customers pretty loud. Always cold in the rooms and in the shower rooms too. The owner did not get good education when he was a child because he just open the room door without knocking.
This hostel had a fairly good location, short walk to restaurants and some pubs. They have a comfortable TV watching room with good DVDs. also have internet but when i was there it was broken the whole time, with no one caring to get it fixed. The Australian guys who ran the place when i was there were fairly creepy, so girls watch out. The rooms were small but adequate, bathrooms were also ok. I would probably stay here again.
Nice, clean, modern, convenient location, a bit noisy.
Right next to the bus station and a two-minute walk from the train station and town centre this hostel may look a little dodgy or depressing when you approach it's entrance between two car-parking buildings. This impression completely changes once you get inside and are met by excellent staff, clean modern facilities (great kitchens, plasma TV, and nice couches); good bathrooms with lockable doors; and clean, comfortable coed dorms. On one night the lounge was quite lively, and there are couches spread around the building also for those who'd rather read or relax. Try get a dorm facing away from the bus station as there is a loud club nearby.
  Just stayed there last weekend, it's an excellent hostel, very good facilities (the plasma in the lounge is class!), excellent kitchen, nice wooden floors, and small dorms. The location is also perfect, it's right next to the bus station and the train station, less than five minutes walk to the nightclubs if you want to go out as well. There's also a pay and display multi-story carpark right next door if you need to park the car, which is only three pounds for twenty-four hours (you can come and go as you please) so don't get ripped off by the open air car park outside! Would highly recommend this hostel and would stay there again.
  I stayed in this excellent hostel recently and highly recommend it. First class, great location,ect.,ect. Go there now! HAIL!
