We spent here 2 night with friends during a round trip in Scotland. We were happy with the rooms, the service but the overall impression was excellent with the place...but recommended for backpackers and students only. :)

Beautiful small hostel, with friendly staff, nice rooms, and free tea and hot chocolate! You can use the dishes in the kitchen, kettle and cook for yourself. You can buy a breakfast in the morning for pennies. They make very nice scones. It's an excellent place to stay for a night or two if you want to visit Pitlochry. BTW...

Just home from another great 4 night stay at the Backpackers. Friendly staff and guests. Warm, clean, bright and homely hotel right in the heart of Pitlochry. I would never dream of staying anywhere else.

“Choose a room with a view on the Main Street. We loved it at night. The further from the lounge the quieter it will be.”
