    This hostel is reasonably priced, so we did not have high expectations for it. The staff members were really nice and helpful, and the room was fine for the one night stay. My friend and I were in a dorm with 4 other people, so...More

    Stayed here for one night in Edinburgh before moving to more permanent accommodation. Hostel is inside an old church, which is interesting in a way, but as a result the rooms are quite small and the walls thin. Bathrooms and showers were good and clean....More

    The hostel is a little threadbare but is kept pretty clean by the staff who all seemed relatively friendly. The private rooms are basic but comfortable which is all you need from a hostel. The bathroom was clean and worked as you'd expect one to...More

    Stockbridge & Dean Village
    Just downhill of New Town and attractively
    straddling a river near the elegant Royal
    Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that
    Stockbridge became one of the city’s first
    hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of
    Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many
    bohemian touches have fallen away as its
    residents have matured and the area has

    Why were two 19 yr olds put in a room with three males one of which was in his forties, what about safety etc? Is it too difficult to have a policy for same sex rooms unless otherwise requested?

    Response from Belford Hostel R |
    Hi there, We do have female only dorms, but the reservation in question was for a mixed dorm. This is clearly stated on the website. If they had requested a Female only room, this could have been avoided.

    Hi, My name is Giulio Pederzolli, I am a 24 old Italian guy just graduated in Labour Law who would like to do an experience in Scotland (preferably in Edinburgh) starting from the first half of June onward, to improve my English but having the possibility to self-finance this experience. I heard about the choice of working in hostels in exchange for accommodation and (perhaps) a small amount of money. I have no experience in the field but I am available for any kind jobs and I'm very motivated. I ask you if this is possible in your hostel. Thanks for your attention, Giulio Pederzolli.
