Pleaces of interest in Edinburgh

You made a great choice to stay in our Edinburgh Hostel. We are absolutely slap bang in the centre of Edinburgh's action. You can see the Castle out of the hostel windows, and you are a short walk from the Dungeons, Dynamic Earth and lots more award winning attractions. Enjoy!

the edinburgh dungeon

Opened 13th April 2001 (spooky!), the Edinburgh Dungeons is a chamber of horrors reconstructing chapters in Scotland's book of the macabre, including Burke and Hare - the 19th Century body snatchers; and Mary Kings Close. The Dungeons is a scary treat indeed. Visit the Dungeon's official site.
