About Edinburgh

Edinburgh attracts tourists from around the world for its rich history, world-renowned golf courses and high-quality universities. Thanks to a large student population,
there is a great selection of bars and restaurants that will appeal to any backpackers or budget travellers passing through.

The city is split between the Old Town, a labyrinth of cobbled streets, narrow alleyways and hidden courtyards, and New Town, a neat and ordered grid
with broad streets that showcase perfectly preserved examples of neoclassical and Georgian architecture from the 18th and 19th century.

Hostels in Edinburgh have everything you need to enjoy your stay. Secure lockers, self-catering facilities, pool tables, bars, walking tours, pub crawls and more.
If you’re brave enough to visit in the winter, you can even find hostels with a fireplace to keep you warm after a long day of walking.

Most of Edinburgh’s youth hostels are in the Old Town, just a short walk from the main tourist attractions, including the Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle,
Calton Hill and Holyrood Park. The city also hosts well-known events like the Fringe Festival and T in the Park during the summer months.

Once you’ve seen the sights, take the time to explore the city’s amazing food and drink scene. There are countless award-winning restaurants that pride themselves
on top-quality ingredients and local produce. If you’re on a budget, there are still plenty of affordable eating options in Edinburgh.

You’re unlikely to break the bank in Edinburgh, but here are some free things to do just in case.

The Scottish are known for their good nature and hospitality, so don’t be shy about asking hostels owners and reception staff for recommendations.
They can help you get out into the highlands and see some of the world’s most amazing landscapes, or give you a local perspective on Edinburgh.

Almost every hostel in Edinburgh is close to major transport links, including the tram to and from the airport, but make sure to filter by price,
rating and facilities to find the perfect fit for your next trip.
