Lovely and cozy place. Very close from the train and bus station. The hostess was very friendly and she gave useful information to have a nice trip around Edinburgh. You can cook your own food and the hostel has free coffee and tea during the day so you can feel at home. It is nice to enjoy a cup of...

Good location and make sure you go for diner at the whiskey bar next to it , amazing sea food and drinks....

This is a nice small hostel not far from Princes street. The tenant was very kind and helpful. Breakfast was simple but nice. I liked the fresh bread cooked every morning (like home!). The entry was quite hard to find and difficult to access if you have several suitcases. However, the rooms were not always clean and needed some fresh...

I loved to stay in this hostel. It felt like home from home. Sarah the owner really made me feel welcome. She gave me a map of the city and pointed out all the main things as well as the nearest super market etc. Everyone got a key from their room and the front door and could come and go...

I really enjoyed my stay at Allgirlz Hostel. I normally don't mix up that much but this place really feels like home. I had a really good time there. I was supposed to stay there 4 nights, I ended up going back there between my trips in Scotland, so I stayed a total of 7 nights. The location is great,...

Sarah is a super lovely host, and very accomodating (we missed our train and arrived a bit after the 8pm deadline – as soon as she was aware we were told it wasn't a problem). The rooms are big and extremely comfortable, breakfast is available and of good quality — plenty to choose from. The whole hostel has a relaxing...

Very comfortable and homelike hostel near the train station (in 10 min by walk) with a great seaview from the street. Very close to the tour-buses' stop and a park. Free wi-fi and breakfast included (but sometimes you can find for free food in a fridge later). Good company of only girls.

This place is in an excellent location! It felt more like a girls college dorm...and looked like it too. It could use some cleaning and new carpets, but it has great potential. It is comfortable and you get what you pay for. It could use another bathroom for all of those girls. The entry way requires some work as well...

Allgirlz hostel is an amazing hostel! It's small with only three dorm rooms (4, 6 & 8 beds) and is more like sharing a flat that staying in a hostel. I found the house was always heated really well, the atmosphere was friendly and hostess was always helpful with suggestions for things to see and do. The breakfast is really...

Staying in Broughton & Calton

Neighbourhood Profile
Broughton & Calton
Lying where grandiose New Town townhouses give way to malls and utilitarian housing, Broughton and Calton have long been transitional neighbourhoods with a mixed identity. It’s here that Edinburgh’s gay village found a home in the 1980s. But gay culture is anything but overt along bustling epicentre Broughton Street; even if polished pubs, hip bistros, smart delis and art galleries all speak of affluent good taste. The top of Leith Walk is more ragged. This major thoroughfare boasts a famously gritty gay club, as well as a strip of good Indian restaurants. Regal Georgian and Victorian townhouses preside over largely deserted streets in Calton, where only the occasional restaurant or hotel brings much life. Even so, a steady trickle of idlers and picnickers pass by to climb Calton Hill for its wide-open lawns, wonderful city views, and curious monuments – an Athenian-style temple among them.
