Our Hostel Locations

Our hostels have truly exceptional locations and excellent links to public transport. Safestay London Elephant and Castle is close to many of the capital's top attractions, including Shakespeare's Globe, the London Eye and Southbank Centre. Safestay London Holland Park is just minutes from Hyde Park, and not far from some of the world's greatest museums, as well as the iconic neighbourhoods of Notting Hill and Portobello Road.

Safestay York is located in one of the oldest parts of the ancient walled city, 10 minutes' walk from the centre and our newest addition, Smart City Edinburgh by Safestay, is in the heart of Edinburgh's old town, just off the Royal Mile. Less than 10 minutes' walk from Waverly station and a stone's throw from Edinburgh's most popular attractions.

Our hostels

Each of our premium hostels is set in a building of historic interest, with stylish interiors by our clever team of designers. You'll find plenty of space for socialising, with a bar area and comfortable seating. But if you just want to relax with a book, that's okay, too. Or sit outside: all of our hostels have either a private garden or a terrace. Security at our hostels is second to none, with 24-hour reception, a key-card system and CCTV in all of the public areas.

Accommodation is a mixture of dorms catering for four, six, eight and larger groups, and private rooms. Most rooms have ensuite bathrooms; hotel-quality beds, top-of-the-range bedlinen, privacy curtains, reading lights, under-bed lockers all come as standard. We also provide free Wi-Fi in all communal areas.
