Central Stirling Stay, Willly Wallace hostel
Willy Wallace ( aka William Wallace, also see reference Brave heart a film). Excellent location for train station and central town area. Good access to places to eat or shop. Hostel kitchen large open well planned for cooking/ keeping your food and easy access plates, pans, knives. Large common room, feature size windows. Colour scheme pretty bright. Sit here to eat or to relax. Stayed in a room of 8 females, bathroom next door. Could do with more space/ lockable to hold all our travel and personal gear, small night lights handy when so many share. Beware of stair case has a slight spiral.
