    I use hostels in Edinburgh regularly and have stayed at most of them at one time or another. The Belfort is one I try to avoid although by no means the worst I've experienced. For backpackers on foot it is quite far from town compared...More

    Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
    a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
    small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
    first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s

    Hi there, We do have female only dorms, but the reservation in question was for a mixed dorm. This is clearly stated on the website. If they had requested a Female only room, this could have been avoided.
