Property Description

Five star budget accommodation in the city centre, ideal for experiencing Scotland's capital - history, culture, food and drink, sport, shopping, comedy...all on your doorstep.

Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel is located in the heart of the city and offers a range of multi-share rooms - ideal if you're looking for group accommodation - as well as private rooms, all en-suite. Premium rooms are also available, taking hostelling to a new level with TV and coffee making facilities.

Edinburgh Central has a self-catering kitchen, a dining room and a spacious common area. The licensed cafe, Haddington Place, offers tea and coffee, cakes, snacks and meals throughout the day. Free WiFi is available throughout.

The youth hostel is just ten minutes on foot from Waverley railway station, the bus station and close to York Place tram stop. It’s within walking distance of Edinburgh's main attractions, including Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, the National Museum of Scotland, Dynamic Earth and the Scottish Parliament. Edinburgh Playhouse and the Omni Centre are close by. And, of course, Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel is a great place to stay when looking for accommodation during the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe Festival.

Please note that there is no parking at the youth hostel, though there are limited on-street Pay & Display spaces nearby. Parking facilities are also available at Greenside Car Park.

Things to Note

SYHA is a charity aiming to inspire all, especially young people, to broaden their horizons, gain knowledge and independence through new experiences of adventure and discovery. In support of this aim, all bookings will include a temporary membership fee per person per night which is displayed as an inclusive rate. (Full, existing members of SYHA and HI using this booking engine are not entitled to a membership refund).

Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel reception is open 24 hours, with check-in from 15.00 and checkout by 10.00. You’re welcome to arrive at any time, though rooms are accessible only after 15.00.

Continental or Scottish breakfast is available from 7.30-10.00 and our licensed Haddington Place Cafe is open from 7.30-23.00, serving snacks and meals from 10.00-21.00.

From the age of 5 to 15 years, young people must be accompanied by a parent or guardian and may be accommodated in a single-gendered shared room with the parent or guardian and other guests, at the discretion and responsibility of the parent or guardian. The young person/people, the parent/guardian and the other occupants of the room must be of the same gender.

SYHA advise that additional notice be given to the destination youth hostel when travelling with children, to ensure that suitable accommodation is available. Contact details can be found on your booking confirmation.

Parties with young children (under 5 years) will only be accommodated in designated family rooms, where available. There is no capacity for extra beds or cots in a shared dormitory or private accommodation.
