Give hostelling a go!
Hostelling Scotland, the self-funded charity accommodation provider, is open for business for 2023, its network of nearly 60 quality-assured Youth Hostels and affiliate hostels located throughout Scotland is open for bookings.
The hostels look forward to welcoming everyone with an adventurous spirit for the spring and summer seasons and early indications suggest it is going to be a busy year ahead.
There are plenty of locations to choose from, from cities to islands, beaches to hills and mountains, and everything in between.
Hostels offer private rooms, shared dorms, well equipped self-catering kitchens and comfy lounge and dining room spaces.
They are an ideal choice for individuals, couples, families and groups who want to enjoy a quality, affordable and sustainable focused staycation.
Hostels are perfectly set up for curious travellers, city explorers, culture and adventure seekers wishing to explore Scotland’s stunning countryside, urban landscape, history, environment and natural heritage.
They offer a flexible, safe and relaxed base to create those special memories to cherish for a lifetime.
Dog owners don’t have to miss out on that special hostelling experience.
They can now plan their next city break or remote countryside adventure, together with their four-legged friends, at 16 dog friendly ‘WoofHostels’ within the network.
Since 2019, when Hostelling Scotland’s first dog friendly hostel was introduced, WoofHostelling has become increasingly popular with dog owners.
There are treats on arrival, ‘Paws for water’ stations, fantastic drying rooms for the unpredictable Scottish weather, comfy lounges and a host of fantastic locations to choose from.
RentaHostel, Hostelling Scotland’s exclusive private hire properties have also increased in popularity, particularly for those planning a family gathering, a celebration with a group of friends, or for walking or mountaineering clubs keen to get out into the hills for a weekend away.
Hostelling Scotland’s CEO, Margo Paterson, said:
“We’re looking forward to a fantastic year of hostelling ahead, welcoming new and returning guests to the hostelling experience.
“Cook up a storm in our self-catering kitchens, revisit the day’s adventures over a cuppa, glass of wine or a local beer with friends in the lounge and enjoy a good night’s sleep in a private en-suite room, or a bed in a shared dorm.
“From family holidays by the beach to back packing and biking adventures, hostelling is open to all and really is a fantastic way to explore and enjoy Scotland without breaking the bank!”
