There is an option to pre-book your accommodation at the Castle Rock Hostel for 3 nights (Wednesday 10th, Thursday 11th and Friday 12th June 2015). Price is £45 for 3 nights and includes a bed in a shared dorm room. The hostel is situated right in the middle of Edinburgh’s historic Old Town and in walking distance from the conference venue. You can book (and pay) for this option when you register. Delegates are reminded that they are welcome to book their own accommodation elsewhere if the dates or prices are not suitable; this offer is by no means the only option to stay in the city. See below for a further selection.


Edinburgh has a wide range of accommodation options to suit every budget. Hostels are the cheapest option with prices per night starting from £8 (bed in a shared dorm). Most hostels are also conveniently located right in the historic centre of Edinburgh and thus close to the conference venue at the George Square campus.
