“Nice stairs!”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

The thing I will remember most about the Haggis Hostel will be the 53 spiraling stairs to the entrance. The staff is very professional and respectful. The location is perfect. And, the price is good. Look for a great little cafe tucked around the corner by the trash bins.

Room Tip: We had a 4 person room and it was fine

All you need for a simple hostel: clean, friendly, and in an excellent location very close to the Royal Mile. Highly recommended! Lots of friendly backpackers going through this hostel. Breakfast (cereal/toast/fruit) included.

Haggis Hostel is centrally located and close to all local amenities. Staff are very friendly and welcoming and are always on hand to offer advice on the best things to do and see in Edinburgh. The hostel provides excellent cooking facilities and is always cleaned to a very high standard. Great place to stay for any length of visit to Edinburgh :)
