Property Description

Fantastic summer youth hostel in the heart of Edinburgh, minutes from the Royal Mile, Grassmarket and Edinburgh Festival action.

Edinburgh Metro Youth Hostel is open for two months every summer, taking over Edinburgh University's halls of residence in the Cowgate, and providing a great base for exploring Scotland’s vibrant capital.

Accommodation is in private apartments of 4, 5 and 6 single rooms. All apartments allow a mix of male and female. Each apartment has its own kitchen.

With reception open 24 hours and free WiFi, Edinburgh Metro is ideal for individual travellers but also for families and groups wishing to have a private apartment whilst visiting the city.

Edinburgh Metro is only minutes from the famous Royal Mile, Grassmarket, the Scottish Parliament and all the Edinburgh Festival action. Whether you're visiting Edinburgh for shopping, sightseeing or to enjoy the museums and nightlife, the youth hostel is an ideal base. This part of town really comes alive during Edinburgh Festival, with many terrific venues within a few minutes’ walking distance.

** Please note Edinburgh metro does not have a lift and all rooms are only accessible by stairs **.

Latest Review

" Basic student accommodation. Each block has 5 single dorm rooms, 2 bathrooms and a kitchen. The floors creak, the doors slam shut and shared bathrooms can be a bit nasty depending on who else is staying there. The rooms can be noisy depending on which side you're staying. If it's front facing then the street noise can be a bit much, even with earplugs in. There is a fire exit door in each block which was good. The hostel is close to the Royal Mile and is ok value for money. "
