Does anyone know of this particular hostel in Edinburgh

Hello Everybody,

Back in 2001, I remember visiting this youth hotel briefly but for the life of me, I can not remember what it was called. What I do remember was that is was a few Ks out of the city centre (on the Princes Street side). I remember a big, stone, spiral stairwell and the building looked old. It could have passed for an old church, but it is not the Belford Hostel. I think, from memory that it was a free-standing building too.

Can anyone tell me if a)they know what building I'm referring to and b) does it still operate as a hotel?

I would be so thrilled to find out what it was.

Thanks All!

Hi!

Google shows up this - www.oceanhostel.com - it's a few Kms north of the centre, free standing old building.

Is this it?

Abs :)

No unfortunately that's not the one. I have a feeling it might not be a hostel anore because I just can't seem to locate it on Google 😞

But thanks anyway!
