19/08/2023Nice ensuite room. Well equipped kitchen. Good location. Good car park. Friendly staff. Excellent wi-fi.
13/08/2023We enjoyed our stay. It was nice and central for us and offered us everything we needed. Hope to stay again.
13/08/2023Handy and very convenient place to stay. Easy to find, good parking.
12/08/2023It was lovely weather all the time and so good to be able to sit outside and to even have a balcony off the kitchen/dining room. Worthy of the name 'penthouse'. All the staff I met were great and so helpful. A guest let me use his coffee and milk. Wish I could be a student. Recommend a visit to Crieff, sixteen miles away. Perthshire is the most beautiful county and all the grain was ripening. Hope to be back soon. So good to have 24 hour staff.
04/08/2023Well what's is not to love about Perth youth hostel, Noel and the staff,are amazing nothing is too much for them, from the moment you arrive you are treat like a old friend. The accommodation is spotless and very comfortable, you need a a bed a shower and somewhere to grab something to eat them its perfect. The secenary in a around Perth is beautiful, with great rail and bus links . If you are looking to explore any part of Scotland I't highly recommend any of Youth Hostel Scotland
04/08/2023Great location, price and bedroom. Downside is no hostel vibe or interaction with other people.
02/08/2023Very useful to have YH accommodation available in Perth, not such a communal experience of course (though did have chats with a couple of other visitors), but quite nice to have a room and en suite to myself, after bunk beds elsewhere!
31/07/2023Very helpful staff, quiet easy access to town centre. Excellent meal at Cardo
30/07/2023Great summer hostel in uni flats. Really luxurious for a YHA! Fully equipped kitchen for every four people, rooms only have two beds and all are en suite. Accommodation very clean and looked newly refurbished and you don't have to strip the beds!! This kitchen balcony was lovely and had great views, half an hours walk into town along a small waterway. Ample parking free too. Totally recommend this hostel, Perth is a lovely place to look round too.
13/07/2023Extremely helpful check in staff, spotless room in a great, modern building with courteous guests, an epic shower and decent kitchen - an truly excellent stay!
13/07/2023Friendly helpful staff with great value en-suite accommodation for a single traveller.
02/07/2023Clean easy to access apartment. Free car park. Pub within east walking distance.
19/06/2023We found this ‘part time' hostel by chance, what a gem, it perfectly suited our needs as a base from which to do a couple of cycle rides outside our usual area. Friendly staff and nice clean basic accommodation with kitchen facilities. We will stay here again.
Good SYH experience
20/08/2022Excellent service. cleanliness and perfect for a family of 5.
18/08/2022Single rooms with shower and toilet en-suite is great value at that price.
14/08/2022Perfect location for a group of 5 friends heading to northern Scotland. Easy to find from the A9. Loved having our own flat and kitchen facilities so we could all sit together and prepare a meal. Check in very easy and flexible. Would definitely stay again. Thanks
13/08/2022i highly recommend this lovely University accommodation. The entire staff was very helpful and did their utmost to make my stay comfortable. And, it was so nice to have on the same floor, a full kitchen and dining area with a balconyoverlooking the beautiful city of Perth. Thank you!
01/08/2022Hi I had 15 staying as we were mountain biking and the facilities were perfect for us. 3 x flats that slept 5 were perfect. Easy to find, plenty parking, nice longish walk into town (gentle pace approx 25mins) , clean and tidy rooms (although our bin hadn't been emptied but very minor that) nice setting and view from balcony's. The correspondence I had to book was very good and very accommodating. Well defo use again ????
30/07/2022All great - thank you very much!!!
29/07/2022I was there for work it was idea for what I needed I have stayed there before so knew exactly what it would be like
26/07/2022From the moment I arrived ,nothing was to much for Noel and his amazing staff.local knowledge about taxis and buses ect. Room was perfect with view over to Scone Palace, even the rain couldn't spoil. Perth youth hostel is perfect for groups or even just single person. The hostel it's self is clean safe and secure. In fact I'm thinking of bringing my grand daughters.AMAZING STAFF?
23/07/2022Great location, hospitality and excellent staff.
04/07/2022A nice place, very clean, good kitchen facilities and only a 20 minute walk into town...
24/06/2022Comfortable clean and great kitchen facilities
22/06/2022As it's normally student accommodation it's a bit isolating as difficult to meet other people. On the other hand, it's brilliant location, beds, ensuite, kitchen etc. Ideal for groups of people.
20/06/2022Lovely Youth hostel that is actually the college doorms the rest of the year - so you have your own room with a small bathroom, and even a desk! :) Kitchen facilities are great and really clean, I enjoyed it! Just be prepared to wait for the bus to get to the train station or the city centre, sometimes it takes a while...
19/08/2019What a find - individual rooms - perfect! And very convenient for Perth and Dundee. Very helpful staff.
17/08/2019I love staying at Perth Youth Hostel. The single rooms are great if you you are seeking some privacy at night. The kitchen/common room is nice, but is sparse on skillets and cooking utensils. I did fine with what was available. Perth is a great City with easy access to trains and buses so you can visit nearby places and return that night. Love the 24-hour reception. Yes, stay here!
11/08/2019Lovely place. Staff were very suportive. I love the kitchen and the room.

The surrounding countryside plays host to a wide array of wildlife, with ospreys and red squirrels often seen at Loch of the Lowes. Perthshire is renowned for adventure sports, shopping and whisky. The Famous Grouse Experience is in the nearby town of Crieff and is well worth a visit.
Guests staying at the hostel can also access the leisure facilities at nearby Perth College - including a climbing wall for the more adventurous.
