Very friendly guy on the desk when we arrived. Good twin room with bathroom for £50 which was good value for money. Breakfast is continental and just £2 per person extra. Guy at desk recommended a great pub for food.

We stayed in this hostel for one night and it was a really good idea. The woman on the reception was very nice and helpful. There's a big pantry kitchen which is perfect for cooking. The hostel is clean but old. But it's ok for one or two nights. You also can stay there for free in you clean rooms... More

Backpackers in Pitlochry is an awesome place to stay. The hostel was very clean and is cleaned every morning. The staff is super friendly and gave us directions yo the best attractions and places to eat. If I'm ever in Pitlochry again I will stay at Backpackers!

...And just as good. Staff couldn't be more helpful or friendly. Obviously it's a backpackers hostel so you aren't going to be at the ritz, but it does everything you might want at the heart of pitlochry for a less than twenty quid...
