Castle Rock Hostel, 15 Johnston Terrace, Edinburgh, EH1 2PW
In a wonderful location, facing south with a sunny aspect and panoramic views over the city, Castle Rock Hostel is just steps away from the city centre with the historic Royal Mile, the busy pubs and late-late nightlife of the Grassmarket and Cowgate and of course the Castle.
Most of the rooms have no traffic noise, there are loads of great facilities, 24 hour reception and no curfew. With its beautiful and dramatic skyline Edinburgh is truly one of the world’s great cities. The cobbled streets of the Old Town lead past mysterious gothic buildings up to the magnificent castle. Below the castle’s rocky pinnacle lies the New Town’s 200 year old Georgian splendour.This accommodation is featured on our map of the Scottish Borders, Glasgow, Edinburgh and South Scotland and here is its own website.
