We were not sure what to expect having never stayed in a youth hostel before. What a pleasant surprise!! We received a lovely welcome from the very pleasant guy on reception, he was polite, helpful and very informative! We asked if he could give us any idea where to go eat and he was most helpful. We had booked two...

Views from the dining room are outstanding. A great pace to base your adventure around the highlands. Don't expect unlimited parking on the hostel site. Specify your group size when booking. Negative - WiFi reliability.

The staff (Tracey) are five star (thanks for being so welcoming and friendly). The hostel itself although reasonably clean (carpet could do with a deep clean in ladies dorm) needs a little bit of upgrading. The bedding was clean but the bunks themselves were very unsteady and some screws need tightening I think. The lock on the door to the...

The rooms were spacious, bathroom clean, shower hot, kitchen and dining area clean, noise levels were perfect. This hostel has beautiful views looking down on to Pitlochry, is a five minute walk in to town, and also...

This must be the most easy going, relaxed hostel I have been to. Yet everything ran efficiently! We had such an enjoyable stay - enjoyed talking to the staff and guests, getting advice on where to eat (thanks Tracy - lots of money saved), help with charging GPS and getting wifi. Best of all, forwarding on our coffee maker that...

The best thing about this hostel is the fantastic, friendly staff. Thanks Tracy for all your help your a star. Oh and all the rest of the staff. Miss it already. Ian's ice cream was much appreciated. Worth the walk up the hill past the backpackers just for the hospitality.

The youth hostel was extremely clean and tidy, the views from the outside picnic tables were spectacular. The staff were extremely helpful and the facilities excellent. A bit of a steep walk from town especially after a few drinks and a meal.

Stayed here on two occasions during my trip. Both rooms were four bed (bunk) dorms with ensuite. If you get room four, make sure you don't pick the bottom bunk just inside the door because I think a hippopotamus has been sleeping in it! Otherwise, the rooms were comfy, the self catering kitchen and dining room were adequately supplied with...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)

With 53 beds and en-suite bedrooms, Pitlochry Youth Hostel is ideal for families, groups or individuals looking for budget accommodation. Visitors can enjoy the spectacular views of the town from the youth hostel dining room. The youth hostel, which opened its doors 35 years ago, offers two separate lounges to enjoy some quiet time or to speak with other guests. Wi-Fi during your stay: We do our best to deliver a free Wi-Fi service but apologise that connectivity, particularly in our rural locations, can be intermittent due to the level of our current broadband provision along with high usage when the youth hostel is busy.
