Bazpackers Hostel is the first hostel we’ve stayed in where we booked it in person instead of online. It was located next to the Inverness Student Hostel in Scotland where we had spent one night. It proved to be a lot nicer since we booked a private room instead of a dorm room and also because the wi-fi worked well.

Our stay at Bazpackers Hostel was only for one night, but it provided a very comfortable bed and a restful stay. It was just what we needed after the long days of driving by car throughout the Scottish Highlands.

Private Room:

Our private room was very clean and the bed was large with a comfortable mattress. There was also a desk inside where Mark did some work at while I was occupied by the TV. The window in the room faced a courtyard providing a very quiet stay.


The private rooms were located on the other side of the hostel’s main building. So there weren’t very many people on our side making it easy to use the kitchen facilities and bathroom in private. It almost felt like we were in our own little apartment. The kitchen was small, but not busy, and had all the cookware necessary for us to make dinner that night. There was one bathroom on ourside of the building with a toilet and shower. The wi-fi was excellent and we were able to access it inside our room.

We paid £44 for the private room. It was only £5 more for each person to do the private room instead of the dorm room at Bazpackers Hostel. Being a last minute booking, the price was reasonable compared to others we saw online that were at least £10 more for a private room.


The location was convenient as it was next to the Inverness Castle, and just a 5-minute walk away from the train and bus stations. A few grocery stores were nearby as well including Morrisons and Co-Op.
