    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

    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.
