Very friendly staff, and a lovely location. Have stayed before and would stay again.
5 star staff! I was treated wonderfully by your staff. Everyone was very friendly and polite and ready to answer all questions about the facility and the local area. When I returned from each day of exploration they would ask me about it. Loved my stay.
I can strongly recommend this hostel to people who think they don't like hostels - twin room ensuite was good
Beautiful views from this lovely building. Very friendly and helpful staff.
Great dining room with lovely views. Very friendly staff.
Great bike shed!

The hostel is well kept and is very clean. I had a private room, which was well laid out, beautifully clean and very comfortable. The hostel is in a very good location, close to the centre of Pitlochry. I was really impressed. It is excellent value.
Great value hostel in great location.
The students and staff had a fabulous stay at the Pitlochry Hostel, June 13-15th. Anna and all of the staff were more than accommodating and ensured that our stay was comfortable. It is centrally located, clean, bright and welcoming. We would like to say a massive thanks to the SYHA for making the residential a possibility and to the staff at Pitlochry Hostel for all of your hospitality. The students were raving about the fantastic experiences and the memories they made will last a lifetime.

Lovely hostel, fantastic staff.
Lovely hostel close to railway station (10 minute walk uphill), very clean and fantastic staff, handy for trips to Enchanted Forest and magnificent countryside. Great value for money and towels provided for private rooms free of charge.

Going to the Enchanted Forest and just need a place to rest up? This hostel will do you nicely.
Easy to find from directions, comfortable, beautiful view.
Great location, great price, great room for 2 adults and 3 children.
Took local bus 23 to Balinluib/connection to Dunkeld which was very pleasant and could have used same service to Aberfeldy. Found new visitor Centre at the Dam interesting with a nice cafe - good option if the weather isn't great.
Reasons to visit
Pitlochry sits in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland. Easily accessible by train and bus, it's ideally situated for touring Highland Perthshire.
Set amidst hills, lochs and woodland, Pitlochry makes a superb base for outdoor enthusiasts wanting to explore the area's numerous walking and cycle routes.
The famous salmon ladder, Blair Castle, Blair Atholl Distillery and the Queen's View are not to be missed and Pitlochry Festival Theatre, known affectionately as the "Theatre in the Hills", offers a varied and exciting programme of events throughout the year.
Using the forest as a natural backdrop "The Enchanted Forest" in nearby Faskally Wood is a lighting show that is quite simply out of this world. Each October the autumn woodland is transformed into one of Scotland's premier light and sound experiences that dazzles and delights. Unmissable.
