We also have bright, clean and spacious dorm rooms.

We are conveniently located in the heart of the historic Old Town, just off the Royal Mile. The hostel is within easy walking distance of all major tourist attractions and Edinburgh's wild nightlife.

All staff have extensive knowledge of the best and cheapest places to eat, drink and party in this exciting city. Guests are invited to join us on any of our regular nights out and to pick our brains for the best places to go for your own nights out.
If you don't feel like cooking we have a great café directly next door to the hostel. The Southern Cross Café offers 15% discount to all hostel guests and they do a fantastic full Scottish Breakfast. The café also has free Wi-Fi!

Please note that we do not accept under-18s in our dormitories unless the entire room is booked for that family/group.
Please note Edinburgh Backpackers does not have storage for bicycles.

Latest Review

" Great location! Staff were friendly too. We stayed in the double rooms and not the main hostel so we didn't use the main facilities but the ones we had (kitchin and TV in room) were sufficient for us! Bathrooms were clean as was the room, maybe a little bit of DIY would have been good in places (around our window frame, in the kitchin) but it's all stuff that for staying a few nights really doesn't matter. The only "downside" is the lack of breakfast, but then again, you get a kitchin. "
