The place is so good! The room is clean and tidy, the bathroom is clean and the water temperature is easy to control. There is also a free pool table. The location is perfect just in the City Centre. The staffs are very friendly and welcoming! They also offer toast, scones and cereal for just 2 pounds. The only point...

We have always preferred youth hostels to hotels, but in the recent years finding a youth hostel especially double/twin room is next to impossible. So we turned towards independent hostel in Pitlochry. We stayed here for 3 nights, we had a private ensuite and one of the best times in hostels so far. Some of the great things is that...

Amazing place to stay, the staff is incredibly nice, helping us with the trip and giving us a bunch of advices on where to go to. All the spaces were really clean, great breakfast and the common areas were amazing, equipped with a pool and fun toys for the kids, adding a movie room. The atmosphere was friendly and we...

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...

First of all: the staff was absolutely amazing!! He knew all of his guests by name (even if he struggled to remember but he tried :D) he was really willing to make our stay as pleasurable as possible.

We spent one night in pitlochry as a group of three girls. We got a six-bed-room to ourselves cause it was not too busy. The hostel itseld is pretty lovely - clean and quiet enough as well as right on the main road. The showers were like little wardrobes - which was unusual but they are good. There are three...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in the heart of beautiful rural Perthshire, Pitlochry Backpackers Hotel makes a terrific first stop for any trip into the Highlands. All the comforts of a hotel plus the ambiance and facilities of a hostel - twin, double and dorm rooms are available plus a wonderful sunny lounge, overlooking the main street. Pitlochry Backpackers is an old Victorian hotel, bursting with character. We offer a range of rooms - dormitory (4-8 beds), twins and double rooms (our twin & double rooms are all en-suite). It's such a relaxing place to stay and unwind, with its big cosy lounge that boasts a free pool table, comfy sofas, free tea, coffee & hot chocolate, free WiFi, musical instruments, games, book swap and loads of info on the local area. We also have a separate movie lounge with comfy sofas & cushions and a wide range of movies for our guests to watch. Our comfy beds come complete with bedding so there is no need to worry about carrying a sleeping bag and our self catering kitchen has everything you will need to prepare your favourite dinner. It's a great place to meet like minded 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!Best of all it's literally a stroll away from the beautiful highland countryside. In just 5 minutes you can be at a tranquil lochside with views through the trees to the hills above this pretty 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 our 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, canoeing etc if you're up for it - or simply get your boots on 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. ... more   less
