Welcome to Callander Hostel
On November 20th, the region moved into Tier 4. As a result of the increased restrictions and travel limitations in place, our hostel will be closed until January 2021. You can still use our 'Availability Checker' to check dates and make bookings for next year.
Set in one of Callander’s oldest and most distinctive buildings, CYP Hostel currently offers a selection of private rooms (all of which are en-suite). 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 kitchen area.
We’re based by the River Teith, at the start of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park and less than an hour’s drive away from Glasgow, Edinburgh and Perth. Set in stunning scenery, surrounded by the imposing and beautiful Ben Ledi and the Callander Crags, the hostel makes the perfect location for anyone wanting to discover all aspects of the National Park.
Only 15 miles away to the east is the historic City of Stirling, with its Castle and the popular Wallace Monument. Within the National Park, there is an abundance of beautiful areas to explore, as well as plenty of opportunities for outdoor activities.
Callander itself is a bustling town with all the amenities you could want but also with the benefit of being able to turn off the main street and within a few minutes being in the peace and tranquillity of open countryside.
You can find out about the measures we’ve implemented to help keep our guests and staff safe during the current Covid-19 pandemic here.
Cyclists and hikers are welcomed, with the hostel offering secure bike storage. Towel hire is available. Both individual rooms and the main entrance operate with electronic locks, meaning guests can access the building 24/7 using their key-fob. The town of Callander has two small supermarkets as well as a selection of cafes, restaurants and pubs.
The hostel is a social enterprise run by CYP. This allows us 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.
