The Edinburgh Backpackers Hostel offers a good location, friendly staff, a lively atmosphere and comfortable beds at affordable prices.
Set in an 18th-century building in the centre of the historic Old Town, we are 50 metres from the Royal Mile and less than two minutes' walk from the train station and airport shuttle bus. We're ideally situated for all the city's best attractions and nightlife.
We have clean and spacious dormitories and a few private rooms in our main building. We also have a large number of other private rooms housed in self-catering apartments in two separate buildings on the same street.
Facilities include a kitchen, a pool room and a chill-out room with Sky television.
We operate a 24-hour reception and do not have a curfew.
