Property Information:

At The Hostel we provide comfortable accommodation at great rates! We understand that whether travelling as a tourist, backpacker or getting away with friends, comfort and budget are high on the list of priorities - we provide that and more, in the most stylish and funky hostel in Edinburgh!
Located directly opposite Haymarket Train Station in the West End, The Hostel is only a 5-10 minute walk to the hustle & bustle of Princes Street. We are also opposite the city's busiest bus interchange so you will have no problems transporting yourself out of the neighbourhood.
Edinburgh Castle and the famous Royal Mile are a must see and are easily accessible on foot or by public transport. Right on our doorstep we have the wonderful St Mary's Cathedral, a popular tourist landmark. An easy 15 minute stroll is the infamous Grassmarket area & there are a range of bars and restaurants within 100 metres of The Hostel. We can highly recommend our sister unit The West End Hotel for food & drink, where guests of The Hostel will receive up to 20% off their bill.
