My friend and I stayed in the all female dorm for a few nights and had the best experience here. The staff is so friendly and it felt like coming home every night rather than returning to a stressful hostel. The hostel itself is quiet...More
Absolutely amazing! Best hostel I've ever stayed in (and I stayed in many places). Warm, homely atmosphere created both by the place itself and by the great staff. Not a party hostel, so you can get a good night's sleep. Access to chill out room...More
Very cute, very clean. Small rooms mean quiet nights. That was the best night's sleep I've had in a while because it was so peaceful. We made a few friends in the kitchen for breakfast too. I wish the beds had a little more individual...More
The Lighthouse hostel is ideal for travellers. It's clean, cosy, has got activities every evening, and cheap. But the best part of this hostel is the staff, by far. Friendly, always able to help you, charming... I definitely would stay again.
One of the best hostel stays I got to experience. The staff were delightfull and so welcoming. I definitely recommend this little gem to anyone visiting Edinburgh. Clean, great facilities, free breakfast.

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
