About Princes Street Backpackers East

Princes Street East caters mainly for independent, international backpackers between the ages of eighteen and thirty. Bear in mind, however, that this is only the core group; any traveller (over 18) with a valid international passport and a desire to have a good time is welcome here!

When we say independent, we mean it! You'll find NO lockouts or silly curfew rules here! The staff are always doing their best to provide our guests with a friendly, easy-going and creative atmosphere. And you'll often find one or more of our residents jamming away on their guitar, or collecting others to join them in a night out on the town!

There are 77 steps up to our funky little place (and no elevator) so please keep this in mind when filling your backpack. Our comfortable dormitories hold between four and twelve persons. We also have three double rooms, ideal for couples or persons who desire a little more privacy. You'll find ample toilets and showers (no shortage of hot water here) conveniently located on all three floors. And during your stay, why not take in one of over 500 movies available to you in our Video lounge?

You'll find most of the snack goods you'll want for the film, as well as any toiletries you may need during your stay, in our resident shop. We also have a self-catering kitchen (including free tea/coffee), refrigerators for residents' use, a large dining area, laundry facilities, a payphone, free Internet access and lots of great pictures on the walls. Also, all our residents enjoy a free dinner each Sunday night!

All the staff (and Manager) are backpackers themselves, so you can be sure that we will look after your needs.

Guest Reviews

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

the price was a little bit expensive compared to that in the private room there is one bed and a wardrobe. no free wifi, no towel... but the hostel is in the middle of the city centre, so the location is very good.
