Best hostel ever with friendly staff”
Staff are friendly and helpful. They are willing to share with us the attractions nearby. Also, it is an unforgettable experience for staying in a historic building in Edinburgh. Also, it is very cheap and the location is very good that it is near to most attractions. The kitchen is very large that it was not crowded even when there are many people in it. Also, they provide us free coffee, tea and chocolate and necessary cooking equipment. I have met so many nice travellers and we all had a good time here. The common area is nice and cozy that allowed us to chat happily. They also hold different activities to gather travellers making this living experience a memorable one. It is probably one of the best hostels I have ever stayed!
Have A Wonderfull Stay”
A Great location in old town area
Close to everywhere ”
HSH located only 6 minutes of walking distance from Waverley. Strolling around here and take yourself to the St.Gile’s Cathedral, Princes Street, Calton Hill, Edinburgh Castle, etc
relatively strategic location. good facilities -i.e. kitchen is huge to cater for many hostellers, hot chocolate is awesome. got tv for viewing and tables. impressive overall. would consider to stay again during next Edinburgh trip
Very friendly, central place”
I enjoyed staying at High Street Hostel. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the facilities were good, the location is amazing. Rooms were comfortable even if a bit crowded. Bathrooms were clean. I'd stay here again for sure.
Very good location”
The hostel is nearly right on the Royal Mile. It was a very good location, close to various shops and restaurants. Of course, at one end of the Royal Mile is Edinburgh Castle and at the other end is the Palace of the Holyroodhouse. It is walking distance to the bus stops and the Waverley train station.
location is good”
everything was ok with the hostel.For a budget hostel,this is what you get for.Youth hostel that allowed you to meet new people.Their are kind to let us leave our luggage and stay even after checkout.some weird people are sleeping outside the room which can be very unconfortable after shower.
Probably the best hostel”
I stayed there for three nights and it was a decent experience. Even though I was staying in a 10-people dorm but it's not a crowded room. That means you have a lot of space. The room is tidy and neat, so as to the shared toilet and shower room. The staff at reception was friendly and they kept an eye on who's entering the hostel. A card is given upon arrival and you have to show it every time when going inside. The hostel itself is conveniently located and it's just a walking distance to nearly all attractions in Edinburgh.
Nice and clean”
Excellent location with good facilities and kitchenware. The place is clean. Nothing to complain :)
great location, nice common area with a large kitchen. worth of money.
It smells terrible.”
It smells terrible. The smell left on my closes for a little bit longer than I expected. I can get along with the tiney room as well as the inconveniences caused by no elevator. However, the crazy smell is bothering me even after I left.
- great location, just about 10 min walk to undergrand station, prince street, Edinburgh castle, etc. - nice staffs - big common place and big kitchen for us to use - big room - locker is available - clean toilets and bathrooms though they're shared - i would stay again if i come to Edinburgh again
One of the best!”
Excellent location, right in the middle of old town. Despite the huge hostel, everything was incredibly clean. Free coffee/hot chocolate/milk/tea in the kitchen and cheap breakfast (fruits, cereal, toast, variety of spreads, juices) for £1.90. Friendly staff, plenty of seating space in the kitchen with plenty of socket. 24/7 reception.
Nice Hostel Near in Royal Mile!”
1. Location is perfect! Just 3-5 min walk from Royal Mile. So close to all the Main Tourist Attractions. All 15-20 min walk in Calton Hill, Edinburgh Castle, Arthur's Seat, a lot more. 2. Common Toilets & Showers (Boys & Girls) were always clean and well-maintained. Hot Showers were all functioning well. 3. Have Complimentary (FREE) Coffee, Tea and Hot Choco in the Kitchen. 4. Can cook & bake. Just make sure you label your food (with your Name, Room and Date of Departure) so, nobody can take or throw your food. Kitchen is big. Have complete utensils, pans, plates, cups. Just clean everything after cooking! 5. Have an amazing lounge at ground floor. A lot of people hang-out every day & night. They allowed the guest to bring their own food & drinks! 6. Have strong WiFi access! in all areas. 7. Beds were comfortable. Have own bedside safes, lockers two power sockets and light bulb. Rooms are big so, no need to worry if someone is taking your space. 8. 15-20 min walk to Edinburgh Waverley Train Station and St. James Shopping Mall (for Bus Station) and 30-minute drive to Edinburgh Airport via Bus (located near in Edinburgh Waverley Train Station). 9. Laundry is cheap (GBP 3.50). You gave your laundry in the afternoon; in the evening they will return to you. You can also rent a towel for only 20 pence. Iron for clothes is available too at the common areas. 10. Have continental breakfast. Have to pay around GBP 2 (not bad). Comes with bread, cheese, coffee, fruit, juice and cereals. However, you can buy Subway outside which cost only GBP 2.50 for bread and coffee. 11. Check-in (2pm) and Check-out (10:30am) is quickly done. For 5-10 minutes you already have and return the keys. 12. Reasonable price. Around GBP 10-15 on weekdays. GBP 25-35 during weekend. 13. Staff are nice and helpful. 14. A lot of Free activities for guests. Pub Crawl, Beer Pong, etc. The only CON is that you can only stay here Maximum 2 weeks or 14 days and you are NOT allowed to return aga
Great location, great place to stay.”
We stayed here for the Edinburgh festival and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The staff were friendly and helpful and the place was clean throughout. You cannot fault the location as it's just off the royal mile and 5 minutes walk from Waverly station.
I really liked this place. It was super cheap and awesome.
Very expensive for the type of accommodation.
Very good location, excellent facilities like individual lockers, usb charging ports, individual lights. Nice kitchen although gets crowded at times. Did i mention the location?
Love it so much , near the train station 10 minutes walk, convenient &very clean. Next time will come back again.

everything good, big kitchen , spacious living room, nice location, feel secure stay inside
Good staff, clean , good wifi, cheap breakfast
A very nice place to stay! Really makes my trip wonderful!
sweet Home away from home ”
The shower room mixed together that I really cared about! Hope you can separate ! It was really lovely for staying !
Best possible location, right off the Royal Mile. Showers were a little cramped but the dorms are set up to maximize privacy. I consider it was a great value for my money.
You get what you paid for”
Room is quite clean but with an unpleasant smell which I can't tell what exactly it is. Assigned lockers for everyone but poorly arranged means that someone may open the locker just next to your head when you are sleeping. Wifi is very slow that I can hardly plan for my upcoming trip on the internet. Anyway, situated in convenient location and with spacious and well-eqipped kitchen. Just don't expect too much with such a low price.
The bed was too noisy”
They could update the beds. Everytime the person on the upper bunk moved, it had scary sound. Though I paid for the stay, I could not get a good sleep at all.
High Street Hostel”
Great Location but an older version of Castle Rock. (:
They are Not Kind at all”
Locaition is excellent, But shower room and tolilet is Not enough!! And reception steff are soooo unkind. I don't wanna use again!!
Room smells weird :(”
Not a chance
Enjoyed my stay at high street. It is a relaxed, friendly hostel with a great kitchen/lounge area. Rooms are basic and clean. The location is great, right on the Royal Mile.
Everything is great... like it very much. Feels at home...
Great location ”
This hostel is located at the heart of Edinburgh. Very valuable deal if you travel alone or with friends as a backpacker.
Value for money”
Good location, okay Wi-Fi, good breakfast choices!
Great location and friendly staff!”
Nice and clean room
Clean. Nice location. Free luggage service!!
Everything you need in a great location. Would definitely stay here again
It was a great stay there.”
The only bad thing: a very bad smell in The room.
Very friendly staff, people really kept it down in a 18bed dorum, clean altough a little weird was the smell of that place.
Location is very good, near all the attraction places.
good location and good services”

Great place, great people!”
Felt a bit like a college dorm, but an overall great experience!
Stayed to go to university open days so the price and location were perfect.
It's a good choice for backpackers .
Had a wonderful stay. Good location. Nice staff.
Suitable for backpackers traveller”
Room and bathroom very small. No elevator. It's a nightmare if you carry large luggage and you have to take it to up to leven 7 !!
all is great, except for small bathroom and toilet
lovely atmosphere, nice kitchen, clean facilities....
Price, Location, Cleanliness and so on, everything was great!!! If I go back to Edinburgh, I will choose this hostel again! :) Thank you!
overall is good.
the hostel was nice but nothing special. It's just around city center.
You get what you pay for”
Did a one nighter, was alright for the price, relatively good location. Vibes - this is a backpackers hostel.
a bit too expensive”
the room is very small, and there is no lift in the building
Cheap & Close to City Centre”
The people staying in the hostel are friendly and make you feel home. The location is cool and close to Waverley Station. I enjoy my stay there!
Gd price, rm a bit messy coz roomates. overall gd”
Personal muy agradable. Muy bien situado pero la habitación era pequeñísima . Además nos la dieron en la última planta y nos cansamos de subir escaleras. Por lo demás no hay queja, desayuno por 2 libras , baños siempre limpios y muy buen trato.
la ubicación es muy buena. los baños son compartidos, son chicos y limpios las duchas son demasiadas chicas el personal es amable
Un lieu convivial et au centre de la ville”
Lieu idéal pour dormir pas trop cher dans le centre d'Edimbourg. L'ambiance y est très cool, nous avons testé les dortoir où nous avons très bien dormi. On y rencontre des personnes de nationalités et langues diverses et variées.
Bon rapport qualité-prix”
Accueil chaleureux et serviable! Dortoir un peu exigu, propreté moyenne.
Abbiamo soggiornato in una camera doppia non molto grande ma perfetta per i nostri scopi, poiché abbiamo trascorso la maggior parte del tempo per le strade di Edimburgo e tornavamo in ostello solo la notte per dormire. Il bagno in comune era sempre ben pulito e non abbiamo avuto problemi. La posizione in pieno centro offre l'opportunità di raggiungere a piedi tutte le attrazioni della città a qualsiasi ora del giorno e della notte senza dover spendere soldi per prendere un bus.
