Essential Info


Inveraray Hostel provides shared self-catering accommodation in a friendly environment

We aim to make everyone feel at home during their stay in our cosy little hostel. While we offer all that an independent traveller might need, there are some facilities we are not able to provide, and some policies we must keep to ensure the comfort of all our guests

Check-in from 3.30pm – 9.30pm


Inveraray Hostel is closed during the day. All guests are kindly asked to vacate the hostel from 10am until 3.30pm. We’re a small hostel that cannot afford to be open all day.

Once you have check-in, you can go out & return when you like – no need to hurry back after dining out. (Please do, however, be mindful of sleeping guests if you return very late.)

Many guests appreciate a rest or are eager to get an early night after a day’s activity or long journey. For the comfort of all, we kindly ask everyone to enjoy some Quiet Time from 10pm – 8am (sorry, this is not the place for late night parties!)

Children under 15 years are not accommodated at Inveraray Hostel under any circumstances. Our apologies for any disappointment, but experience has proved that our little hostel simply does not have the facilities to cope with, entertain, or ensure the comfort of, families with very young children

Dogs (& other pets) are not permitted anywhere on the hostel premises

Camping in tents, motor-homes, caravans or similar is not permitted anywhere on the premises. The hostel facilities, including the garden & car park, are strictly for the use of our guests

Reservations for groups of 7 or more guests – whether booked in a single stage or in multiple stages – may be rejected/cancelled. Large groups can dominate the hostel & make other guests feel uncomfortable. Please consider hiring the hostel for exclusive use if you wish to bring a large group here

Needless to say, smoking inside the building of any substance in any device which emits smoke or steam is not only prohibited, it is against the law

We regret that Inveraray Hostel does not currently feature wheelchair access nor any adapted facilities. However, it may still be suitable for some guests with limited mobility: there are a few steps up to/down from the entrances but the entire building is single-storey, & all bathroom facilities are level, walk-in cubicles. We have several rooms with single beds & one room with a double. It is a small & easily navigable hostel


A refund of 90% of the booking value will be issued (/ a 10% cancellation fee will be charged) to reservations cancelled more than 7 days in advance of booked arrival date.
No refund will be issued (/ full booking cost will be charged) for reservations cancelled within 7 days of booked arrival date, or in the case of a guest failing to arrive.

Where permission is granted to bookings for groups of 7 or more guests: A refund of 90% of the booking value will be issued to reservations cancelled more than 14 days in advance of booked arrival date. For reservations cancelled (or reduced in guest number) less than 14 days in advance of booked arrival date, or in the case of guests failing to arrive, no refund will be issued
