I stayed at Edinburgh Central YHA the night of 10 February. This place is very well located on a main road. This place has everything you would need for a visit to Edniburgh. The staff are lovely people. Ben checked me in. I was tired from a day long journey. I had a room to myself that was very well... More

Stayed here for 3 nights and this is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. My friend and I were placed in a 4-bed room with shower room/toilet attached. The room is cleaned everyday and the lockers are big enough to fit a small luggage. Though a lil far (about 5 mins walk) from the attractions, it is very... More

Really clean quiet simple room with comfy beds, an effective shower-room and separate toilet ensuite. A friendly, relaxed, safe environment with efficient friendly helpful staff. Cook for yourself or enjoy the modestly priced, small, licensed bistro cafe open from early till late. On a well-served bus route to most tourist spots.

I wasn't expecting much but was pleasantly surprised with the YHA in Edinburgh. Location was pretty good and the rooms were clean and comfortable. Don't expect anything fancy but it was everything you need from a hostel. Staff were friendly and there was a little cafe downstairs where you could get food or drinks. The food was pretty average but... More

I love this YHA, the rooms are spacious and clean, with soaps and paper towels, small restaurants in the ground floor...nice lounge area, clean laundry room, accommodating staff and they are knowledgeable about the area...location? not bad, not far from Queens Street a 15 min. walk just right to give you a kick for the morning tour...

I stayed here for 4 nights and it was enjoyable. I stayed in a 8 bed room in the basement which was fine with me. The room was quite nice and the bed was comfy, I liked that it had your own personal light. The only thing about the room was that it wasn't fully carpeted so the bunk I... More

My turkey simply did not require a knife and melted in the mouth. The cranberry sauce was tastefull, a real delight! The turkey was fanned across the plate, beautifully... More

I've stayed in a few YHA hostels already so basically knew what to expect. However it was better than what I was thinking, we had quite a large double room with spaces for bags-which also included shower, toilet and sink. Just a warning about the rooms-don't touch the blinds! Ours went up fine but would not come down again, which... More

I stayed here two nights with my 13 year old daughter, and I just can't say enough nice things about this place! It is clean, extremely affordable, QUIET, and just very accommodating! They do have a strict 3:00 check in, but they also offer storage lockers (and do provide change for the lockers as well). The hostel is very central,... More
