This place is amazing. Great location from train station! Quiet at night! Great Breakfast and staff, especially Sona. They helped me with every question I had about tourist information as well as restaurants, pubs, and nightlife. Definitely a great price and will stay here again upon return!

I'll definitely choose this hostel next time I come to Edinburgh! The location is very convenient (the bus station, the train station, and many important landmarks are all very close), the hostel itself is clean and comfortable. All the staff are friendly, helpful, and always ready to answer any questions/resolve any issues. They also provide you with free rice, pasta,... More

I do have a business myself and I appreciate to be treated with respect and care. Very professional, comfortable and highly recommended! On a scale of 1 to 10 I would... More

I had a very nice experience in the hostel, it has a very good location, it's clean, cheap and the service is excellent, specially the hot red haired woman that helped me with the booking. It's just next to the balmoral hotel so it's a 1 minute walk to the train station

Great location, close walk to all the Edinburgh hot spots, even have an awesome app you can download on smartphone that gives discounts to a bunch of bars and tourist attractions which helped me save money. Definitely recommend a stay at haggis hostels

From the outside it didn't look like much but inside was clean, warm and they had a room for us. Comfortable bed in a quiet room, clean bath facilities and a... More
