Welcome to our hostel

An 18 bed 4 star hostel on the southernmost edge of Cairngorms National Park, Prosen Hostel nestles in the heart of the Angus Glens. A new footbridge & path leads along the prettiest stretch of the river Prosen to Glenisla, and links to the Cateran trail, in Perthshire. The Minister’s Path with another new bridge across the South Esk leads to the hotel in Glen Clova. Two Munros, the Mayar & Driesh, link Glenprosen to the Cairngorms plateau.

Inside there is a raised red squirrel viewing area in lounge, with wood burning stove, drying room, TV & internet. The village hall is nearby for ceilidhs etc.

The hostel kitchen was well equipped, rooms were lovely and warm with a good log burner in the lounge area. Very clean and comfortable hostel.

Lovely place. Very isolated. Perhaps leave a note for people who have reserved, warden came an hour after we had arrived, but a note to tell us to pick a room would have been reassuring. Washing machine does not work.

I liked the location,very peaceful,well appointed kitchen, could do with more storage cupboards. Apart from my food disappearing from the fridge while I was out walking on Monday?? It is an excellent hostel.

What a wonderful hostel! The only suggestion I can make is that more information is provided in the booking confirmation, or following it, to inform the guest that the hostel is unmanned and that a code is required to get in.

This is a great wee hostel thanks in no small part to Robert, who's been warden here for 10 years. I'll be back for sure.
