...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...

Stayed one night for the Etape, staff are brilliant. Let me leave the car and return for a welcome shower after a bad weather 82 mile cycle after checking out. Highly recommended. These guys are the best...see you next year!

We stayed at the backpackers the night before the etape caladonia, the staff were excellent and very helpful. The rooms were clean and the hostel was very well organised. They even let us use the showers the day of the event after we had checked out, you don't get great service with a smile like this anywhere for 17 pounds... More

The hostel owns a handful of hostels throughout Scotland, and I stayed at most of them. They were all fantastic, proper hostels. They're a tad pricey, but I justify it by the excellent staff, security, and the people the hostels attract. Let me clarify too, that by "proper hostel" I mean the kind of place that you meet amazing travelers,... More

This was the first time my friends and I have stayed in hostel type accomodation and we were a bit apprehensive prior to booking in. Our checking in experience was great, Lynn on reception was really friendly and provided us with useful local information. The hotel is spotlessly clean, our room was very comfortable and warm. The shower and toilet... More

On a tight budget motorcycle photographic touring ride of Scotland I had planned on camping but due to snow and cold forecast I needed a real roof over my head. An Internet search and I found this place, Ryan has a gem of a place. Great facilities and an even better atmosphere. I was spoiled as I had my six... More

I've been to Scotland multiple time and stayed in multiple hostels and this has to be my favorite. It's bright and well maintained. You can't find a better location in Pitlochry and there is plenty of parking. It's on the main street and the co-op is around the corner. It has a big public room where you can find plenty... More

This is an excellent place to stay for a trip to the beautiful Pitlochry. I haven't stayed in the dorms so I can't comment on those, although one of the guests said he really enjoys staying there and finds it great value for money. I stayed in a private room with my daughter back at Easter for a few days... More
