The staff had kindly put me in a room they expected to be quieter as I had informed them I was running the following day and needed a good nights sleep. The room itself was typical of a hostel room, but with two single and one set of bunk beds, and with only three occupants this meant a bed each. The bed was comfortable, and the room and other facilities were warm and clean, and the hostel has an excellent range of facilities and it is only a short walk into the city centre, to the railway station and to Bught Park (where the Marathon Festival was held). I would use this hostel again if I was visiting Inverness.
Unfortunately my room mates were quite noisy when they came in, one shone her torch in my face at 11pm, which woke me up, and one (possibly the same one) unplugged my Garmin, which I was charging for the race, without asking, while I was asleep, so that she could charge her phone. I thought that this was quite rude and selfish, but is not a reflection on the property as they cannot control their guests' behaviour. Since I was leaving the room at 5:45am, and managed to accidentally lock myself out while moving my bag into the corridor (oops!), I can't imagine I was their favourite room-share either!
