    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

    Stockbridge & Dean Village
    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

    Hi there, 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.
