Welcome to our hostel

Available from mid-July to the beginning of September it's a great option if you're looking for a place to stay during Edinburgh's summer festivals, including the popular Fringe. Just a short walk from the front door and you are quite literally slap bang in the middle of the historic centre. The Royal Mile, Edinburgh Castle and the dozens of pubs, clubs and theatres are all nearby
Contemporary and spacious, Edinburgh Haddington Place comprises 143 en-suite single rooms, with large, comfortable beds and plenty of storage. The hostel is perfectly located to connect you to everything Edinburgh has to offer. Train and bus stations are a ten minute walk away and local buses available from its doorstep. Waverley Train Station is also 10 minutes away which means that it’s possible to explore further afield easily by rail. For shopping enthusiasts then the world famous Jenners store is a must and also the designer store Harvey Nichols is only a short walk from the hostel.
Edinburgh Haddington Place has everything you need and more: high speed WiFi, laundry, bicycle storage and an on-site team available 24 hours a day to assist with your enquiries and ensure you have a great stay in our capital city. This hostel unlike our others does not offer any self-catering facilities. We do however offer breakfast, dinner and light snacks at our Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel, a two minute walk. So if you are thinking of bringing your group to Edinburgh in the summer months then why not make an enquiry today.
