Pitlochry Youth Hostel Reviews

Pitlochry Youth Hostel is a comfortable night's stay at affordable prices and welcomes bikers, walkers, families, groups, and individuals. You do need to notify them in advance if you are a group and need meals and breakfasts.

The Location

The Pitlochy SYHA is located in the Victorian town of the same name, sort of right in the centre of Scotland to the south of the Cairngorms. The old-style house in which you stay fits well with the rest of the town. Pitlochry is an area renowned for its whiskey distilleries, so you might want to base here before you head out and hit the local ales. Or it could be a good stopping off point between Edinburgh and the north.

Rooms and Bathrooms

Pitlochry SYHA has sixty-two beds and is segregated into sections. Everything is clean and well organized with linen provided. Most rooms have bunk beds with the odd single bed in the room as well.

Common Spaces

The hostel does provide a continental breakfast and packed lunch if you like, otherwise avail yourself of the equipped kitchen and self cater. There is a large dining area where you can enjoy your meal and relax into the evening. There is also an internet room where there are reading materials and comfy couches as well.


There is not a lot of parking at the hostel and getting in/out of the lot is something of a nightmare, so good luck with that.


Our family have came here for a weekend just after xmas twice now. Our third trip is in a couple of weeks. It is very reasonable to hire the full hostel when a big group of you are splitting the cost. The kitchen is a great size if your cooking for a lot of people, and while the hostel is quite basic, it's just what our family needs for our annual xmas party. The best thing about Pitlochry is everyone getting their own room and own en suite. Never tried it when its open to the public but if you want to hire a hostel for a party, our family would highly recommend it.

The reception staff are very helpful and friendly. The rooms were very peaceful and the dining area has an awesome view over the mountains and village of Pitlochry. It's really easy to find and walk to from the bus stop in Main Street.

Set in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland, with stunning views over the town and surrounding area, Pitlochry Youth Hostel is perfectly located for anyone looking to explore Highland Perthshire.

Sitting away from the noise and bustle of the busy main street, the hostel offers a wide range of comfortable en-suite rooms and is great for groups, families and individual travellers.

Guests can opt for continental breakfast served in the large dining room, with fantastic views over the beautiful Perthshire countryside, or take advantage of the well-equipped self-catering kitchen.

WiFi is free for all guests and other facilities include a laundry, drying room and free onsite parking. Basic provisions, confectionery and soft drinks are available to purchase at reception. The hostel is licensed and there’s plenty of room to relax and enjoy a Scottish craft beer or glass of wine in one of the hostel’s two comfortable lounges, one with a TV.

Browse the shops, eat and drink in local restaurants, or visit the town’s two excellent distilleries. Other attractions include Pitlochry Festival Theatre, leaping salmon at the town’s fish ladder, Blair Castle and the Queen's View. Not forgetting the magical ‘Enchanted Forest’ in nearby Faskally woods in October - but remember to book early for this one!

Pitlochry is a dog-friendly hostel. If you would like to book yourself and your dog into the hostel, please phone the hostel direct to check availability. There is a small charge for your dog when staying in our hostels.

The hostel is also available for exclusive private rental.
