  • Had a lovely stay whilst at the Fringe this year. The staff were great and were really forgiving for me annoyingly losing my towel all the time and leaving my keys in the bathroom and such. Loads of stuff on the inside as well as a massive garden which although is hard to use in Edinburgh's climate(s) is a nice little space. Thanks for the stay!

  • My fiancé and I stayed here for four nights total, and we had originally planned to stay only two, hopefully that is an indicator of the quality and service we received at LHH. The location is, in my opinion, nearly perfect. It is a few blocks away from the Primces Street and Castle areas, while remaining in a quiet street, minus the neighbors rooster. Only the back side of the hostel can hear it though. The amenities and free items provided are awesome! recommend second floor street rooms.

  • This hostel was lovely with a lovely bed and breakfast feel despite the number of people staying there! I loved my stay there.
