    Safestay Edinburgh nestled in the heart of old town, within a few metres from Edinburgh’s Royal Mile. This really is the perfect location for seeing Edinburgh’s historic attractions during the day and just a stone’s throw away from the coolest nightlife in the hip Cowgate area. Our hostel is the perfect resting spot for all types of travellers. Brave guests get the real Scottish experience when they stay with us. Whether it's walking through the Royle Mile to the Camera Obscura, seeing the Castle, taking a pic of Greyfriars Bobby or exploring the extensive food on offer, you won't want your trip to end! There are always street performers and instagrammable stops on the way! Did you know the city is also famous for the Edinburgh International Festival and the Fringe, being the world's largest annual international arts festival? There are 12 main festivals throughout the year. Our Bar 50 is packed full of artists, students and travellers enjoying acts inside the Bar.
