    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.

    West End
    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

    We provide towels on free-hire. You just need to put down a refundable £5 deposit for each towel. We hope to see you in Edinburgh.

    Hello Fernando, Our hostel is in a quiet neighbourhood, so it is quiet in the night. We also provide free ear plug if you require. I hope this helps.
