We are the best hostel to stay in for anyone looking to explore Edinburgh. Everything we do at Haystack has our guests in mind and we do our best to create a relaxed atmosphere which is clean, comfortable and friendly. But don’t just take our word for it. Here is a selection of reviews from past guests. If you have stayed with us recently, please let us know what you enjoyed and where we can improve! We want to make Haystack the best hostel in Edinburgh and take all feedback on board.
We all know hostels can be deceiving when we choose to stay at them because sometimes we are not sure about what we could find. Haystack Hostel doesn’t lie when it says comfortable & affordable. 100% agree. Location is unbeatable, hostel is clean, tidy and it’s cosy, staff was very helpful and outgoing. Oh! And no extra charges every time you ask for things like a towel, chargers, earplugs…. highly recommended 10/10 😉Fearless010101, Tripadvisor
Less than 5 mins walk from Edinburgh Waverley train station. The hostel is not big but very warm designed with lots of natural light in every session of the property – rooms, common area and kitchen.Jaqueline, Tripadvisor
Super clean condition in all over the property, bed is comfortable. (it’s 3 level bunk bed which may be a bit difficult for those staying on the top level). Luggage storage is big enough for normal cabin size baggage and lock is provided free for use. Every bed comes with individual plug for charger!
Shower room is fantastic with its size (exceptionally big) with very good water pressure, hot water and more, free towel provided!
Last but not least, unbeatable kitchen with free toast and different jams and butter. More FREE fresh egg provided for your own style of breakfast and of course, free tea, coffee and milk! Well equipped kitchen allows you to prepare your own meal too.
Staff are very friendly and flexible!!! I HIGHLY recommend this property to everyone.
Staff was very helpful giving us tips on where to go to grab a bite and what to visit. The place was very clean, with storage in the bedrooms (ideal for carry-on luggage) and very well designed. The common areas were nice to talk to other people, and the kitchen was well equipped.Rut, Tripadvisor
Excellent location right next to the train station, coach station and airport tram, 5-10 min from city centre and walking from tours, every close by, super lovely and helpful staff giving not only great advice around the city but also the country side and further in. Only dorms, kitchen very clean with free fruits and accessibility around the clock. Generally very cosy and chill vibe 😉
