Very good hostel, nice price. It is a big house, and they give you this liberty, for example open kitchen and also a nice waiting room with a television, some songs and even a guitar for playing. Good localization, 10-15 by foot from the castle and really close to the bus station that can take you to any where in... More

- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Light House is a truly unique place to stay - our bright young team will welcome you to our beautiful Georgian townhouse bursting with character and charm. We have created a fusion of contemporary living space with good old fashioned family hospitality. Our guests often say its 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 and make new friends. We are only 15 minutes' walk to Edinburgh Castle. The Light House is a loving, caring and sharing place to be - we donate 10% of our profit to a housing charity. So when you stay with us, you are also helping to provide homes for people in need. We are situated in the artistic area of the city centre. Nearby are 4 cinemas, 3 theatres, a concert hall, a wide selection of restaurants, bars, coffee houses and a co-operative super market that opens till 10pm for your essential supplies! We have a large back garden where we host regular campfires and BBQs - 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 its 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 washer......so 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 4 bed dorm to a 10 bed dorm. Each room has a double bed to accommodate couples or families.
