Edinburgh Central offers five star VisitScotland accredited hostel accommodation in the heart of the city, close to major transport links and ideally positioned for exploring Scotland's capital.
A range of room types are available from singles and family rooms to dorms with individual lockers. All are en-suite and premium rooms come with a small TV, USB sockets and coffee making facilities.
