Welcome to our hostel

Perth Youth Hostel is a 30 minute walk into town with regular buses at the front entrance. Perth is a great location for attending well-known local festivals and events this summer, such as the Scottish Game Fair.

Perth Youth Hostel offers single and twin en-suite bedrooms. With four or five rooms in each flat, groups can enjoy exclusive use of the flats; each has its own balcony, shared kitchen and living area. With a 24-hour reception service, unlimited parking and spacious campus grounds, Perth Youth Hostel is ideal for families and groups.

A popular town for shopping, Perth has many long established family businesses, specialist retailers and familiar chain stores sitting alongside one another on the traffic-free High Street. With many cafes, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, Perth Concert Hall and Theatre, the night life in Perth offers something for all tastes and ages. Not to be missed is Scone Palace, original home of Scotland's Stone of Destiny where 42 of Scotland's Kings were crowned.

Great staff, who are friendly and helpful. Signage about blue lidded bins in some kitchens but no blue lidded bin. Please amend sign to indicate bins are in the car park. Although bins for packaging to be recycled would probably be more encouraging to make people recycle.

Good overall, first time my bed was not very comfortable. The mattress seemed lumpy and uneven. There are recycling facilities in big bins off one part of the car park however many people are not aware of them. Bins around the car park jammed full with empty plastic and glass beer bottles - putting some bins for recycling in the car park would be good. Also please put recycling bins in the kitchens of the flats or improve notices to indicate where these bins are. People are just dumping material to be recycled in the general waste bin.

It was a nice hostel and the rooms are very good. The only thing is that if you don’t have a car is a little bit far to get walking from the Train Station; but is very comfortable

The location was beautiful and within walking distance of the city centre. There was also a frequent bus service if required. The student accommodation was very comfortable with plenty of storage space and a handy desk. Unfortunately there were a few issues with the kitchen : no kettle or toaster plus a problem with both of the fridge freezers. However, the staff sorted out these issues promptly. Perhaps in future there needs to be a more vigorous check on kitchen appliances
