We had a private en-suite room (towels were included) and it made an excellent overnight stop on the way from Orkney to Yorkshire. The views from the front & dining room are expansive over the town & hills around, but it's only a few minutes walk into the centre. The warden is very friendly & welcoming and the hostel provided...

Stayed here for a night. The lady at the reception was very kind and welcoming. Was pleasantly surprised by the ensuite room (the other SYHA I stayed in was shared toilets despite being a private room) and the lovely views from the hostel. The thick duvet was a welcome in the cold night. The kitchens are very clean and well...

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 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Pitlochry Youth Hostel is situated only 10 minutes' walk from the busy but small Victorian town. 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. Please be assured we are endeavouring to improve where we can. We thank you for your patience and understanding. ... more   less
