High Street Hostel



As Edinburgh’s original independent hostel, we’ve been helping backpackers enjoy Scotland since 1985. Offering affordable accommodation right in the heart of Old Town Edinburgh, we’re just a few minutes walk from Waverley Train Station.

Rooms are cleaned daily and each bed comes with bed linen and is equipped with a locker for security and peace of mind. Our foyer lounge has free WI-FI so you can stay connected to your friends and family.

Whereas our large main lounge is a perfect place to chill out, relax, meet other travellers, and play pool & other games.

The nearby shops offer everything you may need so you can show off your cooking skills (or maybe lack thereof) in our fully equipped self-catering kitchen. You’ll also receive great discounts on food and drinks at some of Edinburgh’s best local pubs.

Please note that our check-in time is 2pm but guests are welcome to drop their bags off earlier and use the facilities the Hostel has to offer.
