Property Description

Located 10 minutes from the city centre, Containers Hostel is an award-winning innovation. The world’s first hostel designed using converted shipping containers; Containers Hostel is more than just a place to stay, it is an experience.

From the moment you arrive you will be struck by the unique design of the hostel with the special atmosphere it creates. Close to the site is much of the iconic Edinburgh stone architecture overlooked by the distinctive Pentland Hills to the west of the city. Our hostel reinvents what it means to travel by providing a place to stay that is as unique and exciting as the historic city itself. Containers Hostel brings the atmosphere of a festival to the comfort of a hostel.
