Inverness Millburn Youth Hostel Reviews

A short walk from the Inverness city centre, Inverness Millburn Youth Hostel is a basic, cheap, slightly dated-looking but well equipped and conveniently located dorm hostel run by Hosteling International (HI). The hostel is wheelchair accessible. It provides catered and self-catering dorm options, with some private accommodation available. The hostel, open twenty-four hours a day and all year round, is staffed with friendly, pragmatic staff.

The Location

Located a stone's throw away (approximately twenty minutes' walk) from the hubbub of the city centre in a residential district on Victoria Drive, Inverness Millburn Youth Hostel has its own free carpark and bike storage facilities, which is useful for travelers making onward journeys to Speyside or Culloden Moor.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The hostel's dorms are typically split by gender and have typically six beds per room. The beds are basic but clean, with durable and comfortable sheets. Each dorm room also has a wash basin within the room, and at least four lockers per room (locks not supplied). Inverness Millburn Youth Hostel also houses private twin, triple, and four-person rooms for smaller groups wishing to stay together, some of which are en suite (although these are rarer). Within the dorms, there appear to be three toilet cubicles and two shower units per twelve beds. Bathrooms are clean and functional, albeit sparse; ensure that you bring your own toiletries.

Common Spaces

The large kitchen area adjacent to a dining area appears to be a repurposed commercial kitchen, and is extremely well equipped with plenty of individual storage spaces for each occupant's food items both in the larder and the fridge. Tea and coffee are complimentary. For a hostel this size serving the number of people it does, the space is incredibly tidy and clean. The onsite restaurant on the opposite wing to the kitchen serves meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and has a workplace canteen feel to it.

There is also a TV room, book-swap area, and games room, and the reception area has further lounging spots. The hostel also has dedicated function rooms, which can be booked for events and the like, and smoking spots outside.

Internet access is patchy from the second-floor dorms, but provide good connectivity in common areas such as the dining area and lounge. Inverness Millburn Hostel also has a dedicated laundry dryer room, and provide luggage storage facilities at the reception.


This is a clean, affordable, and convenient -- albeit basic and slightly dated-looking -- stay. This hostel is useful for both groups and solo travelers alike.
