Details of Light House Hostel, Edinburgh, United Kingdom Youth Hostels Details for Light House Hostel

The Light House Hostel; a beautiful Georgian townhouse dating back to 1832, is situated close to the west end of Edinburgh in the artistic neighbourhood of Tollcross. Nearby are 2 art-house cinemas, 3 theatres and a concert hall. We are only a short walk to the city centre and Edinburgh castle.

The Light House is a truly unique place to stay, bursting with character and charm. Now under new management, we have created a fusion of contemporary living space with good old fashioned family inspired hospitality. Our guests often say it’s more like a family home than a hostel, with a laid back attitude and cosy friendly atmosphere. The Light House is the place to chill out, relax and make new friends.

We host regular campfires and BBQs in our large back garden so bring your guitars and best (or worst) singing voices and join us for a good old sing along around the fire; dancing is optional! Or if it’s too wet outside you can relax in our spacious comfy lounge and enjoy a wide selection of movies on our home cinema system with HD projector and surround sound.

We have a fully equipped self catering kitchen including a dish no need to wash up, Yey! We offer a free breakfast and complimentary tea and coffee all day, high speed Wi-Fi, access to a desk top computer, free lockers, linen, towels and shower gel. We operate a no shoes policy in The Light House to keep the house in spotless order, a shoe rack and slippers are provided at the entrance making it feel like a real home from home.

We offer a variety of bright and spacious rooms ranging from a private
2 bed room to a 10 bed dorm. Each room has a double bed to accommodate couples or families. Any guest under the age of 18 can stay in the private room with a family member who is over 21. The communal living areas are clean and cosy providing a great space to relax and unwind after a busy day of sight seeing.

There is a no smoking policy throughout the hostel with smoking area out front. We are not a party hostel, so the communal areas are locked at midnight to ensure every guest gets a good night’s sleep.
