I stayed at the Belford hostel for 2 nights. First, the location wasn't the greatest. Seemed safe, however was far from downtown Edinburgh. We took Uber for $4-5 pounds each way. The locals said to take the "black taxi" but the taxi was more expensive,...More
I stayed at a private room in this hostel in April 2017.
Although the hostel looks really cool and fun, some of the essentials simply weren't there. For instance, though they advertise free wi-fi, it doesn't work in every room (including mine), so every time...More
Do NOT book through "Scotland Hostels". Poor communication and loads of errors. Plus hostel manager was not told we were a choir with children. This hostel is NOT appropriate for under 16s & does not normally take them. It's not cold now insulation has been...More
I only write reviews when deserved and earned. Belford Hostel and in particular Sherralyn the Manager made my stay absolutely perfect. I was greeted with a warm welcome and provided with all the information I requested- mind you I ask a lot of questions! All...More
So its 2017 and this is a developed country yet somehow they can't figure out how to heat a small room to a comfortable temperature. By that I mean you can see your breath!. You might as well sleep outside. But don't worry guys! They...More

Thank you for your comment. Had you seen Reception, we would have assisted you in turning on the heater. As the building is an old church, made of sandstone, and based in the cold country of Scotland, it can be a wee bit chilly, so...More
Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s most desirable, though many bohemian touches have fallen away as its residents have matured and the area has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but mostly residents display refined tastes in basement
bistros, gastropubs, coffee and antique shops, boutiques and delis and at the Sunday farmers' market. A pleasant ten-minute walk away, along a leafy riverside path beside the gurgling Water of Leith, lies Dean Village. This sleepy neighborhood of medieval half-timbered houses still retains much of the village feel it had when watermills plied their trade here. Beyond, the wooded riverside path feels even more remote as it climbs to the sculpture gardens of the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.
We do have female only dorms, but the reservation in question was for a mixed dorm. This is clearly stated on the website. If they had requested a Female only room, this could have been avoided.
