Property Description

Whether you are coming to Pitlochry to enjoy the vast array of outdoor activities or simply want to get away from it all and relax, we have everything you will need to ensure you make the most of your time in this beautiful Perthshire town.

We have what we think is one of the best hostel lounge rooms in the country!
Overlooking the street below, our bright spacious lounge has comfy sofas and as much free tea, coffee and hot chocolate as you can drink. It also has free WiFi, loads of local information, some games and musical instruments and a free pool table.

We also have a separate Movie Lounge with comfy sofas and loads of films to choose from.
It's a great place to meet likeminded people and although you might think you're only staying one night, you'll end up staying three or four - it's that kind of place!

Our fully equipped self-catering kitchen has everything you will need to cook for you and your friends and there is a supermarket less than a minute away. We serve an optional breakfast for £3.00 for a 'wee bit of everything', (Cereal, toast, fruit juice, tea and coffee, fresh fruit and a freshly baked Scottish scone) or you can simply prepare your own.

We offer a range of Dormitory, Twin, Quad and Double rooms.

We have 6 Double Rooms En Suite, 4 Twin Rooms En Suite, 1 Family Room En Suite(Sleeps 4),1 Twin Room and 3 Quad Rooms (2 Bunk Beds), 2 x 5 Bed Dorms, 5 x 6 Bed Dorms and one 8 Bed Dorm.

Our comfy beds come complete with fitted sheets, duvets and 2 comfy pillows and our private rooms have fresh towels included. We also rent towels and sell some toiletries at our main reception.

There are several restaurants, cafes, pubs and shops just a stone's throw away and our staff can help advise you on the hidden gems of their town.

Our staff can also advise on the fantastic activities available locally and can even call and book them for you. We have a bike and kayak shed available for storing your toys, a drying room for your soggy gear and we also offer a laundry service.

Our fantastic location in the heart of Pitlochry is only minutes away from both the railway station and the bus stop.

Best of all it's literally a stroll away from the beautiful highland country-side. In just 5 minutes you can be at a tranquil loch-side with views through the trees to the hills above this gorgeous highland town. There are many wonderful walks to take; to waterfalls, along rivers, through ancient forests, or up Ben Vrackie (2760 feet, the hill above the town) - these walks all start from the hostel door! The area is also dotted with distilleries, castles and ancient standing stones all within easy reach.

Perthshire is also a big centre for adventure activities, including white-water rafting, canoeing, bungee jumping, mountain biking and canoeing if you're up for it, or, simply get your boots and get exploring - there are some fantastic trails. The Pitlochry staff are a friendly bunch who know the surrounding area like the backs of their hands and are willing to help so don't be shy! Come and have a chat at reception and we can make sure you make the most of your time in Pitlochry.

    I love this place! I regret only staying there for a night. The night shift lady at reception was really really nice! Arrived late and was happy to check me in. She took my laundry at 10pm and had it done for me (for a fee). The kitchen looks small but sufficient. Love love love the whole vibe of the hostel. Colourful walls and cute deco. Location is the best! Right on the main street of Pitlochry. Very cute town. Wish i’d stayed longer. Best hostel!

    One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Kitchen area was really useful, had enough pots and pans. Lounge was also a good place with enough seating and the back of the hostel was a good parking area. Staff were very friendly and I had a great sleep on all 3 nights. Definetly recommend it!

    Perfect for anyone who wants to spend their time hiking! The only thing I wish they had were lockers but each individual room locks and it is easy to get to know your roommates.

    Great location, right on the main street. All areas including room were spotlessly clean. The bathroom in the double room was ancient but clean and functional. Comfortable bed but again room was old. The heating was on which was great. Only negative was the buzzer for entry after 1030 wasn't working properly.

    Great location. Friendly staff. I was pretty tired so only used the bed and bought dinner out as I found the kitchen too small for the number of people using it. Fun vibe and slept well.

    Great location. Attention to cleanliness exceptional. Some shoddy workmanship in bathroom and bedroom, which let it down.

    Good points: Excellent facilities - lounge with pool table, tv room, guitars around, fully equipped kitchen Location - perfect. Can't miss it and glad it's not up a hill after a day of hiking. Okay points: Staff politeness variable. Not so good points: Security: A member of staff entered the room without knocking at 7am to see who was in the room. Building is in full lock down after 12.30pm - felt a bit like a prisoner and spoken to like a child. Much preferred the other hostel!
