Haystack Hostel, 5-3a West Register Street, Edinburgh EH2 2AA

Open in Google Maps
Haystack Hostel is located in the heart of Edinburgh within a stones-throw of Waverley Train Station. Edinburgh is Scotland’s prime tourist destination with a resident population of some 500,000 people, yet visitor numbers throughout the year come to some 4.62 million or 15.63 million nights. Of this some 29% stay in hotels, 5% B&B and guest houses and 8% in other types of accommodation. Edinburgh has one of the highest occupancy rates for cities within the UK. The location is ideal for a business of this nature, given the proximity to the main train station, and other areas of interest, such as St Andrew's Square, Princes Street and the new St James Centre.
