An ideal choice for independent travellers like you, who enjoy the freedom of arranging your own personal itinerary. This hostel has created something rather special and unique for you. The location here is a good one for exploring the centre of the city.

Our hostel has all the features and comforts of any hotel with added benefits. We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and you can come and go as you please. Once checked in you will find that you have a comfortable room that you can call your home from home. The bunk beds we offer are comfortable. All of the rooms are kept very clean. The smaller rooms for 2 or 3 people have private bathrooms ensuite, We are not your usual hostel.

Enjoy a budget stay with a difference whilst enjoying all that the dynamic and sociable city of Edinburgh has to offer. Enjoy breakfasts, brunch and lunches as you set your own agenda and make the most of the many events that take place here throughout the year. There are numerous musical festivals and of course the more famous Hogmanay and Burns Night.

Shopping is prime here for those that wish to indulge - fine fashions, main stream outlets and lots of glitz and accessories.

When you need a rest, simply return to the Smart City Hostel where you can enjoy coffee with your chosen company in our very own cafe bar. We serve cold and hot drinks, snacks and good food all day long and offer a range of entertainment in the evenings.

You could not find a better spot to stop at these prices. Our location is a great one for tourists. For example the Royal Mile is out of the door, left and after 1 minute you are on it! Turn right on High Street and the Museum of Childhood is another minute to get to. The star attraction, the Edinburgh Dungeon, is only 7 minutes walk from the front door here.
