Haggis hostel is well located and the staff is friendly and always available. BUT the the hostel equipments are obsolete (dorm, toilets and bathroom) and not clean. No living room. The price is too expensive for what it is. I do not recommend this hostel.

Haggis was in the perfect location! I arrived on the train from Oxford, and the hostel was just a couple minutes walk from the stations. There is a fantastic pub at the bottom of the building, and you are steps from one of the major streets in Edinburgh. Everything is walkable. I stayed in a coed dorm room and it... More

My second stay at Haggis Hostel was again pleasant. The best things about it are: 1) the location, which is just across the road from Waverly train station and all the local buses, minutes away from the Old town (Royal mile) and the new town. A supermarket (Sainsbury's) is also very close. 2) Friendly staff, who take the extra step... More

This place has it all: great location (you're right on Princes St), super clean facilities, comfortable beds, and a free breakfast. To make things even better the staff is amazing: very helpful and always around to assist. I would stay here again in a second.

Staying in New Town

Neighborhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighborhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
