We stayed at this backpacker hotel for one night on our tandem cycle tour John O' Groats to Lands End. Booking "on the road" by phone was easy though strangely bookings are referenced only by your first name and a booking number. Staff friendly and helpful and unfazed by our unlikely age for "backpackers" (in our late fifties). We were able to lock the tandem up in a shed at the back of the hostel.
We had private room which was small but had a comfortable double bed, good modern shower room with towels included, and even a hair dryer - well up to typical pub or commerical hotel B&B standards. The kitchen was small but clean and well equipped - quite adequate to cook our evening meal, though you do have to juggle the fire doors to take it though to the lounge to eat. We made our own breakfast, but the hostel offers a toast/scone/cereal/juice breakfast for £1.90 which looked very good value.

It was the first time I had stayed in a shared room and it was great. The antipodean staff were very helpful. The shared areas were clean, the bathrooms ESPECIALLY and there was plenty of the stuff you want - toilet paper, soap, plates, cutlery etc. There was a good mix of internationa guests and all of the people there were considerate of others. I stayed here because I was going water rafting and there are so many other things to do in this town. Would definitely recommend this hostel to my friends and will stay here again - excellent value for money!

stayed at the backpackers hotel for a few nights in may. my partner and i liked it very much: the staff were friendly, it was right downtown and a short walk from the grocery store, and it had a nice "vibe" and wasn't too noisy.

the only "cons" are that it some of the rooms are a bit old and smelled stale or mouldy. the rooms could use some fixing up, but were comfortable and livable.

i would stay there again if i am ever in pitlochry again.
