Bookings now open for stays from 5th June!

Safestay Edinburgh Cowgate will be housed in a beautiful and spacious Grade A listed building, located on one of the oldest thoroughfares in the Scottish capital. Cowgate – literally used as the route for driving cattle to market from as early as the 1490s – is now well known for its lively pub, club, bar, restaurant, and cafe scene.

Safestay Edinburgh Cowgate is within walking distance of Edinburgh’s most popular attractions and sites including a 2-minute walk to the Royal Mile and 10 minutes to Edinburgh Castle.

Safestay Edinburgh Cowgate will offer plentiful communal spaces, a bar, and 230 beds in a variety of room combinations – from 8-bed dorms to two-bed private rooms with ensuite facilities – typical of all Safestay hostels.
