• Finding Us

    We are located in the West End of the city center of Edinburgh.

    Our address is 3 Queensferry St. If you ask anyone where the Caledonian Hotel is, it will get you to our corner, as we are across the road from it (but no relation). Also, most people know the bars, so ask for Ryans Bar, that’s across the road too. Although we are officially on Queensferry St, basically we are located where Princes Street becomes Shandwick Place.

    Unfortunately there is a lot of road work going on at the moment, as they are installing Trams into Edinburgh, and that’s a big job, so it can be confusing to walk around. Ask the locals, they are very nice people and willing to help.

    Thanks to google, you can now look at that corner to get an idea of what you looking for. Click here to see it.

    From the Airport

    The bus from the airport to the hostel.
    The bus from the airport to the hostel.

    If you are coming from the airport, the take the airport bus (its the big blue double decker-number 100). For only £3.50 they will bring you straight to us. Get off the bus at the Hope Street/West End stop.(Make sure you listen to the announcements) You can get more information at http://www.flybybus.com/.

    Get off the bus and turn left and then right to go around Ryans Bar. We are across the road from that.

    If you don’t get off at the right stop, don’t worry, it only means you have to walk a little bit. Just get off at the final stop and turn right off the bus. Turn left at the end,  onto Princes Street and walk until you reach a big four way intersection, where you should see the Santander Bank. Other things on the corner are Ryans Bar, The Rutland Hotel, a church, and a department store called House of Fraser. The 5 Star Waldorf Caledonian Hotel is across the road too. We are located above the Santander bank, and our doorway is to the right of it, just after Mathers Bar.
