Welcome to our hostel

Situated in the historic quarter, Stirling Youth Hostel is a great base to explore the city. Only 500 metres away from Stirling Castle, and 2 miles away from The Wallace Monument and Bannockburn Visitor Centre, it's a great place to learn about Scottish history.

A range of multi-share and private rooms are available at Stirling Youth Hostel, all en-suite. Facilities include a self-catering kitchen, dining room, two separate common areas and a meeting room for private use.

Stirling hostel is a short 5-10 minute walk into the city centre where you can find excellent shopping, cafés, restaurants, bars and nightlife. The popular Blair Drummond Safari Park is easily accessible by car, for a fun family day out. Dollar Glen, Tillicoultry, Castle Campbell and the Victorian spa town of Bridge of Allan are a few of the great places to visit while you're here.

Great location, friendly staff. The rooms need new decoration and a facelift to modern times. Old beds and no good shower. Dirty because too old. Dirty carpets.

I made my 2nd visit to Stirling SYHA, the 1st being last summer when I brought my family from Kent for a two night stay. On this occasion I brought my niece and her husband who are currently over on a holiday from Australia. We stayed just the one night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Stirling SYHA provides an excellent base from which to see The Wallace Monument, The Bannockburn Experience and of course Stirling Castle; all three locations were visited.

I've stayed at Stirling YHA a couple of times now and each time I really enjoy it. The cook, John, even remembered me! It's got a great kitchen and dining room with lots of windows and a really great place to hang out and meet fellow travelers. It's also extremely well located right in the heart of old town and near all the ancient sights that you could want to see within easy walking distance! super friendly staff, really clean, and very safe!

Beeindruckt durch seine zentrale Lage und dennoch ruhig gelegen. Alles notwendige vorhanden. Große Aufenthaltsbereiche in zwei Stockwerken. Abstriche bei der Hellhörigkeit der Räume.

Auberge de jeunesse située dans un très joli cadre. Personnel très aimable. Le seul point négatif étant la propreté des sanitaires. Le sol des WC de la chambre familiale n'avait pas vu depuis de nombreux jour une serpière...
