Inverness is the capital city of the Highlands and is set amongst some of Scotland’s most fascinating attractions.

The Inverness Student Hotel has a terrific outlook over the river and the city to the hills beyond. It’s a quirky building with real character and a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Our comfortable dormitory rooms have between 5 and 10 beds.

We have a spacious common room with big Victorian style windows that offer stunning views over the River Ness. It is a great place to meet like-minded travellers, whilst enjoying all the free tea, coffee and hot chocolate you can drink!

We can arrange bike rental and will send you on your way with free maps to help you discover the magnificent beauty that is….Loch Ness!

If you do see Nessie, don’t forget to mention that you’re staying with us when you talk to the press! Also, if you are completing the Great Glen Way and need a bed to rest your weary legs then you are in luck as we are only 100m metres away from the finish line. Hurrah!!

The Student Hotel staff are always very friendly and approachable. We can help you book your tours, recommend places to visit and most importantly we know the hidden gems of the city to ensure you have a memorable time in Inverness.

We are also only 10 minutes walk from the Train and Bus Station and a quick 5 minutes walk into the town centre.

The bustling town centre soon gives way to lochs, hills, forests and glens. Visit the beautiful ancient pine forest of Glen Affric, the tranquil but deeply historic Culloden Battlefield, the 4,000 year old standing stones at Clava Cairns or take a stroll down the river bank to the waterfront to try to glimpse the wild dolphins that frequent the nearby Moray Firth.

Famous Loch Ness lies just a few miles upstream and of course has its own special wild animal!
