Edinburgh’s will have you under its spell. Boasting medieval charm combined with its underground party scene, no city in the world can quite match the mystery of the Scottish capital.
Our Edinburgh hostel could not be better placed, being nestled right in the heart of the medieval Old Town with amazing sights such as Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, the Scottish National Galleries plus plenty more attractions all within walking distance. You can literally roll your body out of bed and be right in with the action. We can be reached by foot from Waverley train station in just 2 minutes, with the Old Town’s charming, traditional bars and pubs just a stone’s throw away.
Sample the local delicacy, haggis, in Jake’s Place next door and enjoy daily drink deals and big juicy burgers at Belushi’s downstairs. We offer pub crawls from our reception so meeting other backpackers and finding a good party could not be easier. There’s no place better for travellers to get the ultimate Scottish experience.
