Our bright, newly decorated lounge is the perfect place for functions or chilling out and taking advantage of our free book swap library. We also provide high speed wi-fi throughout the entire building and free computer facilities so you can check out what’s on offer in the city. You’re well covered when it’s time to eat. Our kitchen facilities ensure you’re well fed for the day ahead. We offer a free breakfast for all our guests, served from 7-11 am every day. Our spacious kitchen is kitted out with an oven, microwave, fridge, freezer and plenty space to sit, eat lunch and make new friends. As you’ll know there’s no shortage of quality restaurants and cafes in Edinburgh. Alternatively, pop next door to the supermarket and make the most of our self catered kitchen, you can cook up a treat with fellow guests. Our rooms are centrally heated and come in a variety of sizes. You don't have to worry about making your bed, that's taken care of. The majority of rooms are mixed sex but female only dorms are available. Prices vary by day and room size so have a look online or give us a call before you book. Our reception is open 24/7 and our friendly reception staff will be on hand to answer any questions. Check in opens at 2pm and check out is at 10am, but our common areas are open round the clock so you are more than welcome to chill or grab a drink if you arrive early or are looking to soak up our award winning atmosphere. We take the safety of guests and their belongings very seriously so safe storage is provided free of charge as well as a key-card system to access rooms. The rooms are fitted with lockers, so either bring your own padlock for these, or rent one at reception for a small deposit. There are many attractions on offer in Edinburgh. There are loads of organised tours. You can hop on and off an open top bus to see all the main attractions in a day, or by night you can give yourself a scare on Edinburgh’s famous ghost tour. We recommend taking in a birds eye view of the city up our very own volcano, Arthurs seat. There is much more on offer, just bounce down to reception and ask for more information. We now accept Stag and hen parties as well as large groups from 12 people to over 100 so get in touch for quotes. We have a range of parties including cocktail classes, pole dancing and still life painting. Drop us a line at reception@caledonianbackpackers.com. We aim to please! For those arriving by plane, Edinburgh's new trams will drop you seconds from the hostel. Alternatively you can catch the airport bus. (See Directions) We strive to create the environment we’d hope for when we head off on our travels. We’re passionate about the hostel, and equally as passionate about Edinburgh. We do hope you make a booking and join the Caledonian Clan. Please read our Things to Note below before booking.
