Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel

Great value five star hostel accommodation in the city centre, ideal for experiencing Scotland's capital - history, culture, food and drink, sport, shopping, comedy...all on your doorstep.


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.

Edinburgh Central has a self-catering kitchen, a dining room and a spacious common area. Our licensed cafe, Haddington Place, offers tea and coffee, cakes, snacks and meals throughout the day. There’s also a dining room for breakfasts and group meals and a small self-catering kitchen and dining area downstairs. Free WiFi is available throughout.

The youth 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 hostel - Edinburgh Metro.

Please note that there is no parking at the youth hostel, though there are limited on-street Pay & Display spaces nearby. Parking facilities are also available at Greenside Car Park.
