About About this hostel

Set in one of Callander’s oldest and most distinctive buildings, Callander Hostel offers a selection of private rooms and shared dorms (all of which are en-suite). In the dorms, each bunk bed comes with a utility board providing a reading light, plug socket and USB charging ports. The hostel includes a free parking area for guests and a garden with brilliant views across to the neighbouring Ben Ledi. Indoors, the hostel boasts a spacious lounge, free WIFI and a well-stocked kitchen area.

Cyclists and hikers are welcomed, with the hostel offering bike storage and a separate room for airing wet clothing. Towel hire is available, as is padlock hire for the lockers located in each dorm room. Both individual rooms and the main entrance operate with electronic locks, meaning guests can access the building 24/7 using their key-fob. 

The hostel has three dorms – two 8-bed mixed dorms and a 6-bed female dorm. There are two private rooms – a twin/double en-suite and a 4-bed en-suite family room (the latter providing superb views across to Ben Ledi).

Reasons to visit

The picturesque town of Callander lies just south of the Highland Boundary Fault - historically a meeting point between the Highlands and the Lowlands.

It's close to Loch Lomond & the Trossachs National Park with its spectacular scenery, making it a great location for anyone wanting to explore the area. There are walks for all abilities, from low level strolls to serious hill walking. Don't miss the beautiful Bracklinn Falls, a great mid-level walk just north of the town, with views over the falls and gorge below.

There's fishing on rivers and lochs, historical sightseeing, wildlife watching, adventure sports, pony trekking and golf, giving you the opportunity to fit a lot in to your stay in Callander!

The town itself has many niche shops and a wide range of teashops, pubs and restaurants. Year-round you'll also find live music, arts & crafts, film and jazz festivals.
