Castle Rock Hostel Edinburgh Edinburgh Online Booking

Picture of Castle Rock Hostel

This great hostel is located nearly on the Royal Mile and right next to the Castle. Clean bunk beds and spacious communal rooms add to the experience here.

You do right choosing to stay here. Better located hostel in Edinburgh do not exist. We are in the best place ever for your stay in the city. Yea, yea. You've heard it all before. Well here is the proof! Go out of our front door, over the street, up the steps and 3 minutes later you are on the Esplanade out front Edinburgh Castle. This is the beginning of what is known as the Royal Mile.

Turn left to the Castle or turn right to Camera Obscura and The Scotch Whisky Experience attractions. All the way along you will see gift shops, cafes and historic buildings. Another quick stop can be taken to view the fabulous little St Giles Cathedral. In total the walk to this last attraction (which is no where near the last attraction along the Royal Mile) will take you about 5 minutes if you walk there directly, Anyone not wanting to stay here while they visit the city is just daft at these prices.

Most rooms here have classic hostel bunk beds. If you didn't know your travel companions well before you arrived, you sure will know them when you leave! The communal spaces are pleasant and laid out with some humour and relaxation in mind. In fact one could say the decor makes you feel like you are staying in a castle, not just beside one.

Breakfasts are available here and thats good value too. You get a decent start to the day to put you on the right track,

Everything here is very well organised and maintained. We have a dedicated team of staff who do what they can to make you feel comfortable. That includes making sure all showers and toilets are kept spick and span.

Also the communal rooms are kept tidy too. We want you to enjoy yourself and meet life long friends here. So we give you the space to do that. Play some music or just discuss all the exciting things you did during the day. The choice is yours. You could of course just lock yourself away in your room. But that would be boring.
