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.

Es hat uns rundum gut gefallen dort. Einzig...die in der Buchung genannten 10% für emembermitglieder wurden uns, wie in den anderen Hostels auch, verweigert.

Im Schlafsaal gab es keine Leselampen und das Licht war kaputt. Gut war, dass die Waschmöglichkeiten auf dem Zimmer waren und nicht wie bei anderen Hostels auf dem Flur. Sehr gute Lage, das Stirling Castle ist ca. 10 min zu Fuß entfernt. Das Hostel sieht von außen leider schöner aus als von innen. Man freut sich auf ein schönes altes Hostel und bekommt eine moderne Jugendherberge. Alles in allem ist das Hostel sehr gut ausgestattet und die Aufenthaltsräume und Zimmer sind gemütlich.

Emplacement idéal, personnel très sympathique, chambre confortable. Seul bémol minime : manque de prises électriques dans la chambre.
