Bazpackers HostelWelcome to Inverness, Scotland

We pride ourselves on offering a clean, professional, friendly service and believe people pay to actually sleep at a hostel, not party all night. We aim to provide quality, budget accommodation for backpackers in Inverness. The Scottish Tourist Board has given the hostel a 4 star rating, making us the only 4 star independent hostel in Inverness. Located in front of Inverness Castle, Bazpackers is an old Victorian town house built in 1826 and converted in 1996 to form a modern hostel. We are the smallest hostel in Inverness and just 5 minutes from the city centre, close to everything but out of the city centre noise.

Views from Bazpackers

As well as a cosy and well maintained interior, Bazpackers’ also boasts a large garden which offers some quite stunning views over the rooftops of the city – not to mention our west and south facing rooms that look out over the River Ness, Ness Bank Church and St Andrews Cathedral.

Rooms & Bedsfor a good night's sleep

We have 34 beds in a variety of rooms. All bedding is provided (sheets, duvets, pillow and sleep sheet) and changed daily. All bunks come with individual reading / nightlights . We only use ‘proper’ sprung mattresses, to give a great night’s sleep and these are changed regularly.
Every one of our 10 rooms are slightly different, some with a river view, others overlooking the castle, but all have been sympathetically refurbished to provide modern, clean & comfortable accommodation. All rooms are carpeted and feature double glazing to cut out the noise and cold and every room is centrally heated with individual thermostats to control the heat in each room.
We have two mixed dorms (6 bed rooms), a female only dorm (4 bed room) and a quad (four bed room).
Our private rooms consist of three doubles (double bed), two twins (2 single beds) and a self catering apartment (sleeps 4 in a shared room).

Self Catering ApartmentIdeal for small groups and families

Right next to the hostel we also offer the option of a self catering apartment, ideal for small groups and families. Facing the River Ness, the apartment consists of an entrance lobby, large lounge/dining room with TV, a fully equipped kitchen, bedroom with two bunks (sleeps 4) and a modern ensuite shower-room.

The People

We believe that people are what what really make a difference and at Bazpackers we always have a great mix of friendly international staff as well as guests. The staff change from time to time but are always travellers at heart and we usually have a good range of languages and cultures behind the reception desk.

Showers / Bathrooms

Our stainless steel showers (hot water 24 hours a day) have received rave reviews since we installed them a couple of years ago and in total we have seven showers / toilets at a ratio of less than 1:6 per bed. These are divided into a large shower room and four individual shower / toilet rooms.

Lounge / Kitchen

At the heart of Bazpackers is the original, hand carved, 19th century fireplace with real fire that forms the central focus of the common area. This is a great place to relax, chat, read and meet people from all over the world. We also have a separate TV area with DVDs, games and a bookshelf. The self catering kitchen has all you need to prepare and store your food, with several fridges, microwave and large range cooker. The kitchen common room area is closed from 2300 to 0730 am.

Free Wifi and Laundry

There is free wi-fi throught the building. A laundry service is available at a cost of £5.00 (£2.50 wash/ £2.50 dry) – just ask at reception.

Security

Although Inverness is a very safe place we take security seriously. All rooms are lockable and we provide secure lockers in all shared rooms (please note: we are unable to provide padlocks – so don’t forget yours!). We have a 24 hour staff presence (reception open from 7.30am – 11pm) and the front door is locked after 11pm with a door code system giving 24 hour access.

How to Find usFeel free to contact us. We're here to help.

The hostel is located at the top of Castle Street in Inverness (our actual address is 4 Culduthel Road – but this is just an extension of Castle Street ). There are great views of the castle and river and although we are very central (about a five minute walk from the centre of town, the Tourist Office, and the pubs, shops and restaurants) we are away from the noisy High Street.

Need help Parking?

Although we do not have any private parking facilities there is plenty public parking nearby. There is pay + display parking on Castle Street (about 30 meters from the hostel).
