Top-Rated Affordability at the Haggis Hostels in Edinburgh

What Are the Rooms Like?

Located less than 150 feet from Princes Street, the centrally located Haggis Hostel in Edinburgh is located exactly where you need to be close to all the best of the city. Winner of several "best hostel" honors, including the Tripadvisor's Best Hostel 2014 award, the Haggis Hostels offer clean, attractive accommodations and an incredibly friendly staff.

You can choose a private room (called a "family room") if you'd prefer to be on your own, or you can choose one of the dorm-style rooms. Dorms are either co-ed or single-sex, with the single-sex rooms costing a bit more per night. Beds are set with luxury linens, and you can prove it to your mom by sending photos of your room via the hostel's free Wi-Fi service. Check-in time is up until 10pm, but the hotel can work with you if you're going to be later. 

What Amenities Are Available?

Forgot your outlet adapter? No biggie; all the rooms come equipped with international socket adapters. There's a full kitchen so that you can cook and prepare your own meals if you wish. Enjoy your meals in the dining room that looks out onto lively Princes Street. If you run out of clean clothes, the hostel's laundry service can have everything cleaned for you in no time. The hostel's free, hot showers are perfect for starting or ending your day. There's someone on staff 24 hours a day, meaning someone's always around if you need any type of assistance.

What Are the Rates Like?

Regular mixed (co-ed) rooms at the hostel start at $27. All other rooms, including girls-only rooms, boys-only rooms, and family rooms start at $33 per night.
