Cost always seems important when you stay in what is considered 'basic' accommodation - we paid £52 for a twin room. That's a lot cheaper than nearly every other place in town. For that £52 we got - nice welcome - clean, well equipped kitchen so we ate well and saved more money - lounge has great view, pool table...

I stayed in the Aviemore Youth Hostel for 6 nights from end of January/2017 until the first few days of February. The hostel was absolutely brilliant! Clean, everyone was very sensible and respectful. Staff were very helpful and friendly, the price was fine and the rooms were great. Would definitely recommend and stay again!

Stayed here on a weekend trip with friends. The hostel was friendly, comfortable with great facilities. Unfortunately, the hostel was noisy on the night we stayed and I was awoken by slamming doors. I would still recommend it as the facilities and location was great.

We visited the aviemore youth hostel while attending the 20th anniversary thunder in the glens rally and ride out. It was not our first choice as we usually go for hotels but we started looking for accommodation in January 2016 and everywhere except the youth hostel was fully booked. We were lucky they had a 4 bed dorm available so...

We stayed in a family room with two bunk beds. The room was quite small and basic and the showers were communal with two in a room. They provided us with lots of booklets about the area and had lots of discounts for activities. It was on a main road which wasn't too far from restaurants and a few shops....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Surrounded by woodland, our youth hostel is situated on the boundary of the Cairngorms National Park, a short walk from Aviemore town centre and its bustling nightlife. The youth hostel itself is extremely peaceful, with great facilities. We are also ideally located for many outdoor activities year-round, such as snowsports, watersports and mountain biking. Most activities take place in the nearby Rothiemurchus Estate or on the Cairngorm mountain range. The area itself is host to a diverse range of wildlife, everything from red squirrels, deer, capercaillie, eagles and arctic hares. Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding. ... more   less
