Property description

At The Hostel we provide comfortable accommodation at great rates! We understand that whether travelling as a tourist, backpacker or getting away with friends, comfort and budget are high on the list of priorities - we provide that and more, in the most stylish and funky hostel in Edinburgh!
Located directly opposite Haymarket Train Station in the West End, The Hostel is only a 15 minute walk to the West End of Princes Street. We are also opposite the city's busiest bus interchange so you will have no problems transporting yourself in and out of the neighbourhood.
Edinburgh Castle and the famous Royal Mile are a must see and are easily accessible on foot or by public transport. Right on our doorstep we have the wonderful St Mary's Cathedral, a popular tourist landmark. An easy 15 - 20 minute stroll is the infamous Grassmarket area & there are a range of bars and restaurants within 100 metres of The Hostel. We can highly recommend our sister unit The West End Hotel for food & drink, where guests of The Hostel will receive up to 20% off their bill.

Due to the high demand for accommodation in Edinburgh over New Year, guests will be asked to settle 50% of their total amount, which is non-refundable, one month prior to arrival when booked into the hostel between:
29 December - 2 January (Inclusive)
If cancelling for these dates we require no less than 2 weeks notice for there to be no further charges made to your credit card. Cancelling within 2 weeks of your arrival date will see the total remaining balance of your bill charged to the credit card details provided to us with your booking.


Any guests arriving after 11pm will be required to pay a £5 late arrival fee to the member of night staff. Please note this is a one off fee of £5 and not £5 per person.


Cancellations must be received by 2pm, 2 days prior to your arrival date to prevent any penalty fees being charged to your credit card. If you have booked with an agent online or in person, any deposit made to them is non-refundable unless this has been previously arranged with them. Cancelling a booking within 2 days of the arrival date or failure to arrive at the hostel on your booked day of arrival will see the equivalent of one nights room rate charged to the credit card details provided to us with the booking and your booking will be cancelled for any further nights you have booked.

Group Bookings

Please note that if you are a group of 8 or more people you will be asked to pay the remaining balance as a group (not individually) and leave a £20.00 security bond per person on arrival. This bond will be returned on departure once the room/s have been checked by a staff member. Please note that you should allow time for your room to be checked on departure as this can take up to 15 minutes, if you fail to leave time for your room/s to be inspected bonds will not be returned. If we require any damages to be inspected by the owner, bonds will be kept and returned to you at a later date once a price has been determined for the damage. Disturbing other residents will also result in a penalty charge, the amount will be determined on a case by case basis. Upon arrival at the hostel your group will be asked to read through an introduction letter which lists damages and penalty charges as a guide only, the hostel reserves the right to change these at any time without warning.

Cancelling group bookings - If you are a party of 8 or more people our standard group cancellation policy applies. Cancellations must be made no later than 2 weeks prior to arrival or 1 nights cancellation charge applies for the entire group cost.
