The first time I came here I was introduced to the braveheart drinking game. I won't go into, but needles to say, what a night! The place is colourful and quirky and conveniently central. The beds are charmingly named. The best thing in Stirling is the castle, forget the Mel Gibson monument. If you want to feel welcome and bask...

First time in a hostel. Was met at the front desk from a gentleman named François could not have been any nicer. All the staff where so nice and helpful. The accommodation was clean and comfortable. I would recommend anyone to stay at this nice and friendly place. Definitely 10 out of 10. Great place. Will definitely visit again.

Went on a short trip to Stirling and stayed at Willy Wallace Hostel for one night in the female only dorm. Beds were super comfy, room and bathroom as very clean, and the staff was super friendly. Love the wall with the cubs! Would definitely come and stay again :)

We slept in a shared female dorm. all well, though the night we were there the window had to be shut for the revellers in the pedestrian street below. However the toilets and...

Hi! Very sorry that we couldn't accommodate you that night. There was no bed available at all apart from the ones you booked, and basically no alternative options. The next time that I see your name in our booking system, I'll make sure to reserve three lower bunk beds for you. Thank you. Francois.

About what you expect from a hostel, both good and bad. I brought my young son along this time, and really the double room was a good deal. Fairly quiet (though it did get a bit load briefly late at night) with a bunk bed and little else it met our need for a place to stay very close to...

I stayed in the Willy Wallace Hostel and liked it a lot! The staff was very nice and helpful and there was a well equipped kitchen for everybody's use. Very central near bus and train station and a lot of different sights worth visiting.

The hostel was close to the train, castle and other attractions. The rooms were neat and clean, and the beds weren't too uncomfortable, but they need more bathrooms. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We started our road trip in Scotland spending the night in this hostel, as expected, nothing incredible, beds were old and uncomfortable and the it was not amazingly cleaned. If you arrive late you need to late them now. Good location.

Dear guests, Thanks for this review. I can see through your other reviews that you have mostly staid in hotels. As you said, the price of a youth hostel is not even comparable with a regular hotel. The atmosphere and the service are different. It depends on what you are looking for. There would be no need for our reception...

A very good place to stay : the staff and people are nice, it's a lot of fun to stay with them. The common room is big and comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped and the dorms are clean. There's a good atmosphere at night but the dorms are very silent. It feels like a second home !
