Property Description

Set in one of Callander’s oldest and most distinctive buildings, Callander Hostel offers a selection of private rooms and shared dorms (all of which are en-suite). In the dorms, each bunk bed comes with a utility board providing a reading light, plug socket and USB charging ports. The hostel includes a free parking area for guests and a garden with brilliant views across to the neighbouring Ben Ledi. Indoors, the hostel boasts a spacious lounge, free WIFI and a well-stocked kitchen area.

Cyclists and hikers are welcomed, with the hostel offering bike storage and a separate room for airing wet clothing. Towel hire is available, as is padlock hire for the lockers located in each dorm room. Both individual rooms and the main entrance operate with electronic locks, meaning guests can access the building 24/7 using their key-fob.

Callander Hostel is a social enterprise run by Callander Youth Project Trust (CYP). The hostel allows CYP to offer employability training and opportunities to young people from the local area, with the profits being re-invested in other CYP projects. More broadly, CYP provides youth services for people (aged 11-25) living within Callander and the surrounding area – incorporating a variety of activities and development opportunities.

The hostel has three dorms – two 8-bed mixed dorms and a 6-bed female dorm. There are two private rooms – a twin/double en-suite and a 4-bed en-suite family room (the latter providing superb views across to Ben Ledi).

    Such a beautiful little country town near a lake with plenty of hikes to do. This hostel is nice and close to shops, supermarkets, and restaurants. The kitchen is amazing, with all the utensils you need, and the hostel is super clean and the rooms and bathrooms are really nice. The staff was great and it just had a very homely feel. I recommend anyone stay who wants a relaxing night and is looking to do hikes or activities around the area.

    Very Good

    27 Apr 2019
    We had an overnight stay here between places. Staff friendly, free car park out the back good, and good location close to town. Kitchen facilities okay, though no free tea and coffee like most other places. Large common room, though it was freezing while we were there. Beds in dorm very uncomfortable, we could feel every spring. Also very cold in room - heater not working, and doona not very warm. Hot shower in room, though common shower wouldn’t work. Not the greatest atmosphere here either.
