Exclusive use accommodation

Many independent hostels are available to rent for accommodation for your own exclusive use, so if you fancy an affordable get- together in some of the most beautiful parts of Scotland, it’s a very attractive option. Many of our hostels are ideal for clubs and groups of friends, often planning a trip involving outdoor activities.  Exclusive use is suitable for people who are organising a reunion, a gathering or a special celebration, including getting married. The size of hostels varies greatly, so exclusive use bookings can vary from a few people to a large group.  Exclusive use is excellent value as you pay for the building, not each bed.

Self catering facilities

Most people choose hostels because the self catering facilities allow a freedom and affordability to organise your own food and drink. Some hostels will also provide breakfast and other catering or help you organise it locally.

Family Accommodation

Some hostels are small enough to provide family accommodation which is exclusive use to themselves.  Other hostels can provide accommodation for large groups either on a group basis or an exclusive use basis.

Stag and Hen Parties

Booking accommodation for exclusive use for a Stag or Hen party makes a lot of sense!  Many of our hostels actively welcome stag and hen parties and are ideal for access to outdoor activities as well as providing the ideal accommodation.

Book in advance

You may have to book well in advance for the busy summer period, but it might be worth thinking about spring and autumn, or even winter, for your event when there may be more availability and lower prices.

Welcome Schemes

Some of our hostels have signed up to the Visit Scotland Welcome Schemes, demonstrating a commitment to providing a high quality bespoke service for the particular needs of their customers.  In particular, the group bookings welcome scheme is worth looking out for when choosing your exclusive use venue if your group is large, or children welcome, if you are a family group with children.
