weird & wonderful
stay central is a place for the explorers, the thrill-seekers, the adventurists. a little bit boutique hotel, a little bit trendy european hostel, a little bit special.
here, we are all about fun & frolics, but with no shortage of home comforts. a short stroll from anywhere, we have 37 bedrooms arranged by size. They go- S, M, L, XL, XXL and DORM, and all rooms are packed full of those little extras guaranteed to make you feel warm and fuzzy inside.
all our guests will enjoy free & plentiful wifi, large flat screen TVs, rainfall style showers, bluetooth speakers, and arrival treats.
right in the thick of it
appropriately named, stay central is located in the very centre of the bustling historic cowgate.
with a world-famous late night bar for company, it’s the perfect spot for anyone coming to edinburgh determined to burn the candle at both ends.
for these reasons, stay is suited best for adult guests and therefore we do not allow children under the age of 12. for anyone over that age, we can offer a huge selection of bedrooms types, from compact and cosy rooms for couples, to dorm-style accommodation with all the mod cons you and your group will need for a great time!
come hang out with us
the central café is open to all! open all day every day, it is the perfect place to grab a late night tipple before you head to your room, or even pick a cosy corner to work from for the day. with a small and carefully curated menu of snacks, banging bagels, and breakfast bites… we can’t wait to welcome you!View our rooms
