THE HOSTEL at West End

If you are looking for some fun and a great experience spend a night at 'The Hostel' Edinburgh's Funky new Hostel. Whether you are an individual backpacker looking for some home comforts or a large group visiting Edinburgh for the first time, this 3 star Tourist Board approved hostel is a great choice for your stay in Edinburgh.

'The hostel' is young and fun. Housed in an elegant Victorian building the hostel caters for a multicultural and mixed clientele with individuals, groups, families, couples and budget minded travellers all welcome. Rooms choices available include double rooms, family room sleeping up to five people or our dormitories which range in size from 6 - 16 beds.Clean and spacious, this friendly, customer orientated, hostel is well worth a visit. Reasonably priced for its prime location directly opposite Haymarket Rail station in Edinburgh's trendy West End, within a short walk of Princes Street and Murrayfield Stadium and the Edinburgh Conference centre.



11 Nov 2010 - The staff couldn't have been more helpful for me and my friend. We had got to the airport after midnight but the guy looked up for us what bus to take and gave us step by step directions. Also my wallet had been stolen but the woman gave me extra time to pay so that I could get the money. She was also very helpful finding activities. I highly recommend this place. Great location for a great price.

Such a good location for exploring Edinburgh, as everything remains in working distance, and its a straight walk to Princes Street. Staff were helpful, friendly and charismatic, and rooms remained tidy as well very clean bathrooms - which is always a plus!

The hostel has lots going for it: the place is very clean, the showers are good and the beds are amazingly comfortable! Plus the guy on reception with glasses is so cute, he's lovely ^_^ There is some negative though: the lounge closes at 11pm so if you don't want to go to your dorm there's only a tiny common area to sit in. Plus the kitchen closes at 10pm, so if you want a cup of tea or a snack after 10pm, tough! Also there's no DVDs, if you want to watch a film, bring your own facilities!
