“Awesome hostel.”
Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

We stayed in Haggis Hostel over New Years and it was awesome.

The place is on the 4th floor with stairs but it doesnt end up bothering you at all as everything is excellent. Comfortable beds, always kept so clean, really friendly staff and amazing central location back off a main street.

Would definitely recommend to budget travelers looking for a great hostel.

Stayed January 2014, travelled with friends

The haggis hostel is a nice accommodation situated in the city centre of Edinburgh. So it's quite easy to start journeys in any direction from there. It is cheap and very clean. So are the shared bathrooms and toilets. The service is good and tea and coffee making facilities as well as cereals are provided for breakfast.
Generally it is a very comfortable accommodation.

The Hostel was spotlessly clean with excellent amenities. The rooms were spacious, the beds were comfortable (mine had a memory foam topper) and if you need anything the staff were more than happy to help. Its location is roughly 5 minutes from the train station, if that, and the staff were on hand 24 hours to give information on events in the city or where is good to go for food and drink. I would recommend this to everyone and will definitely be staying again on my next trip to Edinburgh.

I stayed at this hostel several times over the summer. It was always kept very clean and the people who work there were all nice and friendly. It's in a great position right across the road from the train station and easy walking distance to all places of interest

This was my first hostel but I was very impressed. The front desk staff were super friendly and the accommodations were clean. The on site computers with internet access were helpful for travel research along with all the guide books on hand.

The people staying at the hostel were really nice and very approachable. Overall not very loud either which was a plus. I would definitely stay there again!

The blanket is of excellent quality, the bed is spacious, the bathroom is clean and the staffs were always more than happy to help me. Not to mention the location which is close to everything. The only downside is that the heater wasn't warm enough so my room was a bit cold. However thanks to the thick blanket I still had a comfortable sleep.

Note that the lockers are so small that they didn't fit my Easyjet - sized suitcase. Also they charge a fee for towel/locker/luggage storage/internet (students get the internet free?). But overall the price for these services are quite reasonable compared to other hostels/Waverly left luggage.
