The location, the price, the decor, the activities... this place is amazing with a view of the Edinburgh Castle. Scottish dancing, pub crawls, ghost tours, pool competition, etc. All for free! Cheap breakfast was decent too. We were in the 16 bed dorm and everything was clean and I was surprised that people were actually considerate and followed the rules which made it nice for those who wanted to sleep. If you wanted to party you could just stay in the longues and many did. Such a cool place!

Right in the heart of old town (castle rock is literally across the road)

My girlfriend and I felt right at home here, friendly Aussie/international staff helped us with any and everything we needed.

Beer pong and pub crawl were loads of fun and a great way to meet fellow travelers who we ended up spending our days exploring Edinburgh with :)

Would definitely recommend!

If you stay at the Castle Rock hostel in Edinburgh, you will not regret it! Comfortable beds, privacy (when needed), friendly staff, and many others await you and your friends! There is no free breakfast unfortunately, but that's ok as you are center to a lot of cafes and eateries! I would definitely recommend this hostel and will probably stay again on my next visit!

The hostel has everything. Comfy beds, huge kitchen, awesome staff, clean bathrooms, free breakfast, a movie room. The best thing was definitely the fact they had two large common rooms. One with a pool table and free tea, coffee and hot chocolate. and the other with a piano, bookshelf and a quieter atmosphere. I was there when the weather was too bad to go outside sometimes but I had just as good of a time staying in the hostel. I'll definitely stay again.

It was my first hostel experience and really enjoyed the stay there. The location is right beside the Edinburgh castle which gives a nice view once you step out of the hostel. I stay in 3 different room sizes, 4bed and 12bed female dorms and 10bed mixed dorm. Would say I prefer the 4bed female dorm the best especially since the view from my room window was fantastic. They also have many areas for people to chill out, and their main lounge area has a pool table and free hot chocolate/tea/coffee.
The staff were very friendly and willing to help with any troubles you had. They provide ear plugs and hairdryer which I found very useful during my stay there. Would absolutely recommend to anyone who wants to stay in an Edinburgh hostel to book with Castle rock.
