I was in the Haggis Hostels for eleven nights so I can write that this hostel is amazing. It's cheap, clean and directly in the city center. The Showers, toilets, rooms and kitchen were always clean. There are enough separated showers so you can lock inside and you have one small room for your things and your own shower so... More

Very clean, very quiet, PERFECT location. Really couldn't have asked for anything else. Staff was very friendly and helpful - even carried my luggage down when I had to check out at 5:30 am! If I am fortunate to visit Edinburgh in the future, I will most definitely be staying at Haggis again

Had a great stay at the Haggis Hostel Edinburgh, which was interrupted by a brief episode of sickness, the whole team was friendly and helpful and didn't charge me when I checked out quite late. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and tidy.

This is a great place to stay, great location, really close to the station, and the touristy areas. The breakfast is good, the place is clean, and the staff are all very friendly. Sonia, William and Jess are very helpful and enthusiastic. Haggis Hostels is a great place to stay, I'll definitely stay there again if I'm in the area.... More

Haggis Hostel is located just off Princes street, so in a very handy location without the noise of being right in the middle of things. The staff were all great; super friendly and accommodating. And they cooked us breakfast!! I feel like they really knew what was happening in the hostel all the time, and who people were, which definitely... More

Haggis Hostel is a wonderful place. The staff was incredibly friendly, very helpful, and went out of their way to make me feel at home. They offered me breakfast even though I was checking in that day, and didn't mind when I sat around using their wifi to plan the rest of my trip. Very nice, place. My only regret... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at Haggis Hostel for one night. It was a great experience. Staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. The rooms, showers and bathrooms were very clean. It is right near the Waverly train station and a quick walk to all the wonderful sites and restaurants. We will definitely stay next time we visit :)

Chris and Will couldn't have been more helpful with carrying luggage etc we even were able to leave our bags there on checkout so we... More

Staying in Princes Street and Gardens

Neighborhood Profile
Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
