Staff fabulous - very friendly and helpful.
The hostel is in a great location up by the castle. Make sure you walk up to the graveyard, the views are great. We ate at the City Walls pub and it was very good value with an area to sit out upstairs.
Was brilliant - spotless. Staff so friendly and helpful. Location was perfect. Stirling is a great location, perfect for sightseeing shopping or just chillin xx
Very close to the cemetery and the castle. 10 min walk to the pubs and restaurants. Parking available, super clean and friendly staff.

Great stay in a great location.
Excellent value for money.
Stirling is a beautiful city and it has a rather fine youth hostel. There is limited parking on site, and there are great views over the city and away towards the mountains. Public transport in the area seems pretty good too.
Really comfy and loads of space. Nice big kitchen. Plenty of parking over the weekend nearby. Check in and out was seamless. Quiet and friendly place.
