Property Description

CoDE Pod Hostels - THE LoFT is a unique, boutique hostel on Rose street North lane, in the vibrant and beautiful city centre of Edinburgh.
We are located within walking distance of most major sights and we are conveniently located on connections from and to the airport. The train and bus station are just a few minutes by foot from our hostel.

Combining innovative, modern design with the traditional materials and elegance of a listed red brick building, CoDE Pod Hostels aim to provide the best possible accommodation, atmosphere and experience for our guests.

Our sophisticated ‘Pods’ (we’ve gone beyond traditional bunk beds here) are designed with maximum comfort and privacy in mind. Our kitchen and communal area are intelligently laid out to ensure those who stay here can relax and unwind, and, if they choose to do so, meet and mingle with interesting new people, as part of their hostel experience.
Our penthouse apartment is our luxury private room with double bed. It is designed with its own kitchen, private bathroom and roof terrace with views of the castle. The big windows make this a bright room with views over the roofs of Edinburgh.

We offer a healthy breakfast every morning from 8:00 am until 10:00 am for £3 if pre-booked or at check-in. We are also surrounded by a large collection of breakfast and dining choices to suit all budgets and tastes.

THE LoFT is a fun, cool, relaxing place to stay and is the perfect location from which to explore and enjoy everything that Edinburgh has to offer.

    Had a great stay, absolutely beautiful staff, facilities and location couldn't be any better. Love the privacy of the pods and the vibes in the chill area. Breakfast is amazing, something for everyone. Did I mention the staff was lovely?

    Everything you needed Cosy room and nice bed - feels quite private unlike most hostels- not much space but enough Rooms get quite hot quite quickly but they had a heater so that problem minimised when I turned it down obviously Would definitely stay here again

    Super clean and new hostel. The staff were all very kind and helpful. Definitely worth the money. Great and central location. The only thing I’d say is that it was a pretty quiet hostel, not much of a social life.

    Great location. We stayed in the 6 pod mixed room and liked the layout. Our only negative would have been to make the lockers a touch bigger to store our suitcases in, and the pods were a little warm to sleep in when the curtains were closed. Everything was clean and the breakfast had good variety. Would recommend.

    Fantastic. Just big enough, pods are very private, very good location close to the train and the city. Clean. Wifi everywhere. Two showers and one toilet per floor. No laundry, sadly, which is says it has on the site. The shampoo & body wash in the shower was good. Complementary earplugs which I didn't end up needing.

    Pods are actually really good! More places should do this. It feels like your own little private space, with shelf, curtains, power etc. Room enough to sit up against the wall and read. Bathrooms nice. Staff super helpful. Great location. Atmosphere is ok - a shared common room but no hostel specific events or meal cooking together. Would definitely recommend.

    Love the place, quiet and high security but I minus a score because they charge if you want a towel rent and breakfest. But in total, I still love it.
