Hostel Accommodation in


Castle Rock Hostel is fabulously located right beside Edinburgh Castle! Our palatial hostel offers wonderful character, with a mix of grandeur and a backpacker vibe! Enjoy being in Edinburgh’s best location & being at the very heart of the city. We are just a stroll from the bus, train and the airport bus and a 1 minute walk from Edinburgh Castle, 1 minute from the Royal Mile & 1 minute from the Grassmarket. We’re in a relatively quiet street but the city’s wonderful, late night-life is also just around the corner – ideal!

Edinburgh Backpacker Accommodation

Built in 1846 and turned into a backpackers hostel in 1997, we have packed this grand old building full of art, character and antiquity. Some people say it is more an art gallery or museum than a hostel. We think you will love it with our bright, sunny and spacious rooms and great facilities like FREE Wi-Fi, a movie room, a delightful patio and a fire place for those cold winter nights as well as plenty of room to kick back and relax or join in the fun with other travellers.


Edinburgh City

Scotland’s capital, with its beautiful and dramatic skyline, is truly one of the world’s greatest cities. The cobbled streets of the Old Town lead you past mysterious gothic buildings, up to the magnificent Edinburgh Castle, the center piece of the city. Below the Castle’s rocky pinnacle lies the New Town to the north with its 200 year old Georgian splendour.

With a huge nightlife and plenty of pubs and clubs to choose from, Castle Rock Hostel offers a 24 hour reception service and no curfew.
