This is a very affordable, welcoming, hostel-like accommodation in an interesting Edinburgh neighborhood.
The House is run by a religious organization, but everyone is welcome. There is no proselytizing.

This accommodation had a good location. Easy walking to the Royal Mile. It also had very nice people! But the room itself was very tiny with only one outlet, not near a mirror. We did not realize when we booked it that this room had...More

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.

There are many places to visit around Edinburgh for one day and our guests often just travel independently. Beautiful East Lothian, particularly North Berwick, great beaches to walk on the coast, Dunbar. Down to Crammond and over to South Queensferry with some amazing photo opportunites of out bridges.
From South Queensferry and North Berwich there are boat trips out to the islands. Then again Roslin Chapel is easy to get to off Divinci code fame.
Our guests have all enjoyed these wonderful places. If you stay with us, we will spend time helping you to find the right transport there.
If you want to go on day organised tours there are many to our beautfiul highlands and Border country.
Hope this helps
