    Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
    a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
    small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
    first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s

    mostly residents display refined tastes in basement

    Hi there, We do have female only dorms, but the reservation in question was for a mixed dorm. This is clearly stated on the website. If they had requested a Female only room, this could have been avoided.
