I'm attend university in Edinburgh and stay in Haggis Hostel one night a week during term time, when I attend lectures. The hostel itself is quite small and accommodates approximately 20-30 guests- a much smaller capacity than most hostels I've stayed in previously. I find this to be a particularly positive quality as it creates a much more friendly and... More

Stayed at Haggis for 3 nights while visiting Edinburgh. Stayed at two other hostels but this was by far the best. The beds were really comfy, the place was spotlessly clean. The showers were nice and powerful and the kitchen and gallery areas were great to chill out in. The staff were great and nothing was ever a problem. The... More

One of the nicest hostels I have had the pleasure spending time in. Laid back, friendly atmosphere. The kitchen is clean, the rooms perfect for a good nights sleep. It offers clean luxury towels and extras you would expect from a 5* hotel at a fraction of the price. Location is ideal for all the Eastend sights and located close... More

Good location, very close to Waverley Station. Standard dormitory accommodation. Excellent kitchen facilities with utensils, cutlery, fridge space and cooker with hobs. Buffet breakfast with cereals and bread/pastries was OK. Nice little sitting room with information about local attractions. Staff were very helpful and recommended places to visit in Edinburgh.

Clean to a degree you almost think is to much, they comply with your needs! I though it was to cold and just a word to the staff it got worm and nice. free breakfast and you have 24/7 axes to the kitchen. I've been to 3 hostels in Edinburgh so far and this is the beast by far!

I stayed at Haggis for a short holiday in September. The location is fantastic - walking distance from many attractions in the Old Town, just across Waverley Station and plenty of amenities nearby. The people who run the place are fantastic - friendly and always happy to help. As with the other reviewers have mentioned, there are a few flights... More

Stayed here for a few nights around mid November. Location is convenient. I got to Edinburgh by coach and it was relatively easy walking distance to the coach station. Also close to the major shopping strip. Within walking distance of Old Town - just cross the river and up the hill. Just be aware there are a fair few sets... More

Loved my stay at Haggis Hostel ! The rooms are really good and the beds are super comfy. The kitchen is big and very good for cooking your own meals, plus they offer an amazing breakfast ! The staff is very friendly, and they will promptly clarify any doubts you may have. I'll definitely stay here again !

Had a great stay - Hostel, facilities and location are excellent . Staff are a credit and ensure an enjoyable stay. Rooms are affordable, clean and very well maintained. Late breakfast to allow a sleep in after a good night out in the city center.. Good Wi-Fi connections and walking distance to all the attractions. !
