We're taking bookings!

In light of the current travel restrictions and changing guidelines on social distancing, we've decided to take a short break!

During this time, we remain open for business and our reservation team will happily assist with all enquiries and take bookings. The future may be uncertain, but our ‘Flexible Booking Guarantee’ offers you piece of mind when planning or booking your next break.

Most of our hostels are available for RentaHostel and our reservations team are available to help with any private hire enquiries at hello@hostellingscotland.org.uk.

It’s been a very difficult year for us all and we look forward to the day when we can safely welcome you back. In the meantime, we have to put the safety and wellbeing of our guests, teams and local communities first. If you love to travel but don’t want to feel like a tourist. If you want to escape the everyday and find adventure. If you want to live life like a local and discover Scotland’s great outdoors. If you want a warm welcome, a comfortable bed and a place to chill with delicious food, a local beer and an amazing view…

…we think you should choose Hostelling, and we're looking forward to welcoming you when the time is right and it's safe to do so!
