19/08/19What a find - individual rooms - perfect! And very convenient for Perth and Dundee. Very helpful staff.
17/08/19I 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!
11/08/19Lovely place. Staff were very suportive. I love the kitchen and the room.
04/08/19If 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
02/08/19Short, 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.
30/07/19Well located in Perth and extremely clean.
23/07/19Just what we expected a wee home from home
21/07/19Wonderful 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!
12/07/19An 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.
07/07/19Awesome place! Clean quiet and comfortable. Very friendly staff!
29/06/19Pleasant room, comfortable bed. Great shower. Facilities excellent with all that one would need to prepare food.
31/08/17What a gem of a place. Perfect base for exploring the area and cheap too! Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Will definitely be back next summer.
29/08/17Very happy stay.
18/08/17éviter de se situer sur le bord de la route, les fenêtres ferment mal
12/08/17the hostel is very good and well located if you would like to visit scone palace, loch leven(21km- don't hesitate to rent a bike in kinross) kinnoull ill and the Perth city. The staff are well reactives in case of issue. I recommend it.
11/08/17Great hostel, great location, very clean, comfortable, and quiet; staff very helpful and friendly; great value also; on-site sports facilities an added bonus; would definitely stay there again and would recommend to friends and family
09/08/17This is a great hostel with ensuite, single rooms. It is in a quiet location with easy access to public transportation and within walking distance of a grocery store. This is a good place for quiet time for recharging your personal batteries.
02/08/17If anyone is going to rewind Scotland travel by train always get advance singles ticket available 12 weeks in advance. Taxi from youth hostel to sconepalace is £10 each way if there are 4 sharing that's fiver good value for money
30/07/17Good clean accommodation convenient for A9 travellers with ample parking on site.
25/07/17Fab youth hostel, friendly and helpful staff . Very clean and comfy for the price. My 2 nd visit and won't be my last. Thanks Marion
23/07/17Nice tidy ensuite room with good shower. Shared kitchen is fine but needs some extra things. bottle opener, can opener, wine glasses. It s a bus into town no 1 or 2 to the "factory outlet " beware that Perth bus stops have timetables but no indication of the bus numbers...,! A small shopping area in Tulloch is 800 m away with a large Coop shop and a good chip shop.use maps.me to find it ( offline maps with location)Staff friendly and easy to get hold of.
21/07/17Recommend Perthshire Centre at Bankfoot off A9 for breakfast - also it's open 8am-8pm
20/07/17I had a private room in a 4-room self catering flat in this student accommodation. Excellent cleanliness and facilities, lots of parking, shops nearby, fabulous views through the glass doors on the balcony across the city to the hills. Really good value - can't fault it. Many thanks.
30/06/17I think visitors can go to the Perth hostel by bus or they can even drive to there as it has a big car park. Alternatively, people can go there by bike, which is just 10-15 minutes from Perth city centre.
30/06/17a very good base to travel out of to really enjoy every thing will stay next time in the area
25/08/16A little hard to find but friendly builders knew direction
15/08/16I booked a room here to get some work done and it was amazing! a lovely location to sit and have tea breaks and go for walks, and having kitchen facilities was so handy. would recommend it.

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.
