Second stop on a round Britain Motorcycle trip, rain stopped as we arrived, from Yorkshire, to reveal a fantastic view, from the hill, down onto the town and up and down the glen. Only 10 mins walk from town centre. Lovely building, good food, great staff. High quality Hostel Drying room heat was not on, did get turned on but... More

This hostel is quite possibly the best I've been in and I've been in lots. The staff were very attentive, we had a 4 room dorm to ourselves and couldn't have asked for more. There was also a bike shed to lock our bikes away, bonus.

Small, but in a nice setting with comfortable beds for a relaxing night's sleep after a day of rafting or badger baiting. The lounges were a bit small and the staff a little rude but if you simply curl up in your duvet and ignore these insignificances then you'll have a memorable stay.

The youh hostel is up a hill and we were travelling town-to-town on buses and trains. The uphill climb toughened us but it was a grunt. Although you can buy a breakfast, it wasn't great and with so many early and very good cafes in town, we wouldn't bother another time. The essential clean, comfortable bed was fine and the... More

We were very happy that we could find self catering accomodation for 3 nights in August. August is the busiest month in Schotland and you better book ahead. We did except for 3 nights and finding an affordable place to stay proved to be a real challenge. The Pitlochry youth hostel closes between 1100 and 1730; as we happened to... More

we spend one night in this hostel, the staff was friendly and the location is very convenient close to the center of Pitlochry, you can go by walk. The room was clean and he breakfast was good for a small fee. Good recommendation for that area with small budget

Stayed as a couple in a 4 person room. Pros: cleanest kitchen seen in any hostel ever, good lounge rooms (1 for TV and 1 for other) which are social, off street car parking Cons: no free wifi - £6 for 20mins

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.
