Great people and great facilities. Thank you for preparing such a good dinner (haggis :D) on new year night! There are many travel guide books for Edinburgh and highlands which was really useful. Excellent stay.

It's nice place in the city centre close to main attractions but not too loud at nights. Good for young people. Friendly staff and great haggis. Nice wallpaintings on the stairs create friendly atmosphere

This hostel is right in the middle of everything and about as close to the bus and train station as you can be. Comfy beds, good internet, outlets by each bed, and breakfast included. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Definitely a few stairs to climb on the way in, but you save your steps walking everywhere else because it's so...

Situated next to the Waverley Station, this hostel appears a bit funny from outside and then in the staircase but actually, what is waiting for you is a very clean and nice place with a welcoming staff. The bedroom was quite small but it wasn't a problem. The shower was exceptional compared to the hostels I knew so far. The...

Haggis Hostel is probably the best hostel in Edinburgh. Top centric location, all the tourist attractions can be reached by foot. The staff is really nice and friendly. The rooms are very clean and well equipped.

Overall it was a very nice stay, with friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast was included and you have free tea/coffee whenever you want. There is an extra fee service for towels but it is very cheap so no need to bring your towel in your luggage. Location is really good, close the city center and very near the bus to...

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
