Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel
9 Haddington Place
Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel is located in the heart of the city and offers a range of multi-share rooms – ideal if you’re looking for group accommodation – as well as private rooms, all en-suite. Premium rooms, with TV and coffee making facilities, are also available. WiFi access is free throughout.
Our licensed Haddington Place café offers tea, coffee and cake as well as snacks and meals during the day. There’s also a dining room where we serve continental and cooked breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Our small self-catering kitchen and dining area downstairs is available to individuals and groups of 20 or fewer.
The hostel is just ten minutes on foot from Waverley railway station, the bus station and close to York Place tram stop. It’s within walking distance of Edinburgh’s main attractions, including Edinburgh Castle, the Royal Mile, the National Museum of Scotland, Dynamic Earth and the Scottish Parliament. Edinburgh Playhouse and the Omni Centre are close by. And, of course, Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel is a great place to stay when looking for accommodation during the Edinburgh Festival and Fringe Festival.
If we are fully booked in July and August, please check our summer youth hostels – Edinburgh Haddington Place and Edinburgh Metro.
Please note that there is no parking at the hostel, though there are limited on-street Pay & Display spaces nearby. Parking facilities are also available at Greenside Car Park.
