I stayed in the Willy Wallace Hostel and liked it a lot! The staff was very nice and helpful and there was a well equipped kitchen for everybody's use. Very central near bus and train station and a lot of different sights worth visiting.

The hostel was close to the train, castle and other attractions. The rooms were neat and clean, and the beds weren't too uncomfortable, but they need more bathrooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We started our road trip in Scotland spending the night in this hostel, as expected, nothing incredible, beds were old and uncomfortable and the it was not amazingly cleaned. If you arrive late you need to late them now. Good location.

Dear guests, Thanks for this review. I can see through your other reviews that you have mostly staid in hotels. As you said, the price of a youth hostel is not even comparable with a regular hotel. The atmosphere and the service are different. It depends on what you are looking for. There would be no need for our reception... More

A very good place to stay : the staff and people are nice, it's a lot of fun to stay with them. The common room is big and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and the dorms are clean. There's a good atmosphere at night but the dorms are very silent. It feels like a second home !

Spent 3 nights here and found it to be clean, comfortable and extremely colourful! People are friendly are happy to offer advice on where to go what to see etc. Upstairs bathroom recently refurbished so offer a decent shower after a long day. Location is good, central and 3min walk from the station. Only downside with central location is that... More

To start with positives, the place is regularly cleaned, and the bathrooms are really nice. However, I don't think the place has been deep cleaned in a very long time, and as a result everything looks run down and dingy. There are only a couple of outlets in the rooms, and they're hidden behind beds, so you can't really use... More

Hi, Thank you for helping us to improve our services. Our hostel is an old historical building. Everyday our housekeeping team is giving a deep clean to every single dormitory and common areas. However, when the hostel gets a bit busy, it can be a challenge for us to keep the kitchen and living room very tidy at all times.... More

It was one of the best hostels I stayed in Scotland. Low rate, great location, acceptable cleanliness, free Wifi and hot beverage, that were about everything you dreamt to expect in a youth hostel, and Willy Wallace offers all. There was also many good restaurants nearby

Went to Stirling for the weekend to see the castle. The only time I got sleep was in afternoon/early evening. There is no sound proofing from outside. From about 7pm onwards til after 1am, there were crazies out on the street making enormous amounts of noise. Over than the lack of sleep, it's a nice hostel. Staff were nice. Lounge... More
