OUR HOSTELS ACROSS 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). Each of the hostels has its own particular charm and all three work together to run some of the best hostel activities in the city, meaning no matter where you stay you’ll have an amazing time in Edinburgh.
Further north we offer 6 Highland Hostels. 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!
