Our Hostels Around Scotland
Scotland’s Top Hostels offers nine welcoming hostels throughout Scotland to help you explore our beautiful country within a budget!
Our first hostel (High Street Hostel) opened up in 1985 just off the Royal Mile in beautiful Edinburgh and was soon followed by our largest hostel (Castle Rock) and smallest hostel (Royal Mile Backpackers). All three of our Edinburgh Hostels are a family and share activities, meaning you won’t get the best of Edinburgh no matter where you choose to stay!
Further north we offer 6 Highland Hostels and a small, private guest house. Whether you’re planning to climb the UK’s highest peak, look for Nessie or explore the mystical Isle of Skye; we have a spot for you!
All our hostels are backpacker run and Scottish owned! Our staff is made up of a multinational crew of people who have all fallen in love with our beautiful country and will do their best to make your stay as unforgettable as possible. You may even find yourself wanting to join the family too!
