I was travelling with my husband and we hadn't planned staying here but decided to on our way from Inverness down to Crieff. The town is beautiful and the hostel itself is lovely. The staff we encountered were extremely friendly and helpful. The location is great, only a short walk into the town which as previously mentioned is lovely. There... More

Perfect walking distance to downtown. Just be aware that's it is on a hill, therefore getting back is all uphill. Friendly and very helpful staff. Clean and comfy room, ours had an ensuite bathroom/shower, not sure if all rooms do. We stayed in October 2013 and saw the Enchanted Forest.

Great views, lovely friendly staff and easily available facilities. No frills and some refurb would be good but this place does what it says on the tin - and the views are amazing over the town. Also very quiet - we took two small children with us and this is always a concern, but no issues at all.

Aberdeen Academicals' Golf Society chose Pitlochry for our inaugural annual reunion and we were very well looked after by Chris, Pete and Wilma at the Youth Hostel. Great views, clean rooms and common areas and really good catering. Just watch out for the pothole as you turn in to the drive.

Pitlochry YH has incredible views overlooking the town. I had a warm welcome from the manager, who was helpful in telling me where everything was. All of the bedrooms are upstairs, and with subtle steps in between. it's a bit short on car parking. Dining room views are amazing, looking across the Tay Valley, and the town. Kitchen fairly small,... More

But it depends on your definition. I picked this place based soley on the nice location with the views over Pitlochry and I'm in 2 minds now whether it was the right choice for me personally. The location is certainly very pleasant and the views are as good as promised but the hostel itself is not really what I think... More

First the reception will be open late in the afternoon (and so hoping you can sleep there). And then the person at the desk might like you or not, if not you get that noticed. Later that day I get warned before going to kitchen that i need to clean the kitchen after using it, with a mad voice. I... More

Stayed here for one night with a friend during a cycling tour of Scotland. The hotel is exactly how it should be, efficient, clean and wecoming. Staff offered us half price tickets to the theatre upon arrival and although we were too tired to go, it was nice of them to offer. It felt more welcoming than the usual sign... More

Stayed here a lot in the early 1990s on family holidays and found it functional but very homely. Little has changed- it's been a bit smarter on my last couple of visits (2010 and last week in 2012) but its obvious age doesn't spoil it. Beds are comfortable, staff are friendly and efficient and facilities are well maintained. It is... More
