8/1/2022 12:00:00 AMHi 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 ????
7/30/2022 12:00:00 AMAll great - thank you very much!!!
7/29/2022 12:00:00 AMI was there for work it was idea for what I needed I have stayed there before so knew exactly what it would be like
7/26/2022 12:00:00 AMFrom 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?
7/23/2022 12:00:00 AMGreat location, hospitality and excellent staff.
7/4/2022 12:00:00 AMA nice place, very clean, good kitchen facilities and only a 20 minute walk into town...
6/24/2022 12:00:00 AMComfortable clean and great kitchen facilities
6/22/2022 12:00:00 AMAs 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.
6/20/2022 12:00:00 AMLovely 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...
8/19/2019 12:00:00 AMWhat a find - individual rooms - perfect! And very convenient for Perth and Dundee. Very helpful staff.
8/17/2019 12:00:00 AMI 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!
8/11/2019 12:00:00 AMLovely place. Staff were very suportive. I love the kitchen and the room.
8/4/2019 12:00:00 AMIf you're going to be rewind Scotland or any other Festival then I would recommend Perth youth hostel. Where you will find really friendly helpful staff who have a great local knowledge and nothing is too much for them. The rooms themselves a spotless and practical. You have your own cooking facilities so if you have Fussy Eaters then there is no problem as you make your own. Youth hostel itself a short taxi or bus ride away from the station, and there was plenty of parking spaces
8/2/2019 12:00:00 AMShort, 2-night stay in a clean, small, modern five-bedroom unit with kitchen/dining/sitting area, and balcony - most welcome in the summer heat! Very peaceful setting in wooded grounds. Bus service to the college not very good in the evenings, and a 25 minute walk up from the town centre. Otherwise, a great place to stay.
7/30/2019 12:00:00 AMWell located in Perth and extremely clean.
7/23/2019 12:00:00 AMJust what we expected a wee home from home
7/21/2019 12:00:00 AMWonderful place, very nice rooms (beds, desks, ensuite bathroom) and kitchen (including cooking utensils and plates etc), very clean and comfortable, great atmosphere. Very helpful staff when checking in, not quite central to Perth itself but is a great location for exploring the local area by car. Very reasonable price too!
7/12/2019 12:00:00 AMAn excellent hostel. Lovely en-suite rooms with a fully fitted kitchen for every four rooms. Ideal location, a five minute drive to the city centre and buses close by. A good price and well worth a visit.

6/29/2019 12:00:00 AMPleasant room, comfortable bed. Great shower. Facilities excellent with all that one would need to prepare food.

Reasons to visit
In Central Scotland on the banks of the River Tay, and known for its natural beauty, Perth is the perfect base to explore everything that the surrounding area has to offer. Local attractions include Scone Palace, Perth Concert Hall, Horsecross Theatre and Perth Museum & Art Gallery. 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.
- Gym prices from £5
- Climbing wall prices from £5 junior/£8.50 senior
