Set in one of Callander’s oldest and most distinctive buildings, Callander Hostel offers a selection of private rooms and shared dorms (all of which are en-suite). In the dorms, each bunk bed comes with a utility board providing a reading light, plug socket and USB charging ports. The hostel includes a free parking area for guests and a garden with brilliant views across to the neighbouring Ben Ledi. Indoors, the hostel boasts a spacious lounge, free WIFI and a well-stocked kitchen area.
Cyclists and hikers are welcomed, with the hostel offering bike storage and a separate room for airing wet clothing. Towel hire is available, as is padlock hire for the lockers located in each dorm room. Both individual rooms and the main entrance operate with electronic locks, meaning guests can access the building 24/7 using their key-fob.
Callander Hostel is a social enterprise run by Callander Youth Project Trust (CYP). The hostel allows CYP to offer employability training and opportunities to young people from the local area, with the profits being re-invested in other CYP projects. More broadly, CYP provides youth services for people (aged 11-25) living within Callander and the surrounding area – incorporating a variety of activities and development opportunities.
