CoDE Pod Hostels - THE CoURT

We already have the highest rated hostel in Edinburgh under our belt, now we're growing!

Housed in a converted courthouse and jail, our new pod hostel, right on the Royal Mile in the heart of the Old Town, and we need your help to welcome our guests and keep it sparkling clean.

We'll give you a cosy Pod in a shared room!

We have a friendly full time staff of 10 and usually around 4-8 volunteers staying with us at a time, so there's always somebody to hang out with!

The Code team was an absolute dream! It was nothing but perfect. The accommodation were comfortable and super clean. Expectations and responsibilities were made clear from the beginning and we were properly trained for the house keeping roles. The manager really uses the volunteers for their strengths and abilities to benefit the team. I had a blast hosting social events! However it was the people that absolutely made the entire experience a home away from home. I cannot wait to go back to this incredible hostel! Thanks for an amazing experience!

Hostel bem localizado, acomodação: cama boa, quarto compartilhado com 10 pessoas, resultando bagunça desorganização e sujeira. Tarefas bem organizada e comunicadas antecipadamente e cumprida conforme acordado. Staff, no início prestativo, porém, se acontecer algo anormal simples te receberá apoio, ou pior.
Atenção: não recomendo para homem.

a fairly central place in old edinburgh with history, the same building is parliament, the staff and volunteers are very sociable, daily teamwork is developed, your work schedules are very organized in the system they use and the app you install, you have a Delicious breakfast and laundry. You even have access to a whiskey, gin and beer tour. Every day there is an event at the hostel. I recommend it.
