The hostel is very basic fairly clean with very friendly and helpful staff. The location is great - just 3 mins walk from proncess street and 5 mins to the train station. I stayed in a 4 bed female only room which was very small but it didnt really matter that much as most of the time we were out... More

I stayed here with my study abroad group and it was fantastic. The staff was so friendly and helpful. They always had answers for our questions and suggestions on things to see in Edinburgh. The location is fantastic. This hostel is located directly in the city center and is a few minutes walk from the Royal Mile. My room was... More

Edinburgh merkezde kalacaklara tavsiye edilir, konumu harika. The staff were very helpful. The location is perfect. It is very near to train tram bus stations and shopping center and main stores besides festival events. The price is high. I stayed in a four bed two bunk bed room which is quite narrow. There is a free coffee and tea. Breakfast... More

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

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.
