Virginia lives in a lovely home in Edinburgh. The bedroom offered for guests/students is a nicely decorated twin room with Wi-Fi Access, a television and plenty of storage. There are excellent transport links, with buses running very frequently into the Edinburgh city centre. Guests/Students can benefit from a nice home and a thoughtful, hospitable host.

    Ich hatte ein paar schöne Tage bei Virginia und habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt. Das Haus ist zwar etwas außerhalb der Innenstadt, aber es gibt eine sehr gute Busverbindung. Auch zum Flughafen kommt man schnell per Bus. Alles war sehr sauber und Virginia konnte mir auch gute Tips geben.

    Virginia was an amazing host. She made us feel very welcome and looked after us extremely well! She was very helpful in giving us sight seeing advice around Edinburgh which made going somewhere completely new a lot less daunting! The location is perfect as it’s only a 20 - 25 min bus ride into town with buses running very often. I would definitely go back there again and recommend her to anyone looking for a cheap and convenient place to stay in Edinburgh. ☺️

    I found Hannah's stay a very welcome one. Both girls were full of beans. In sure their stay was an exciting time as it was New Years Eve. I would have no doubts in recommending them to anyone to stay.

    My friend and I really enjoyed our first Homestay experience with Virginia! She is very welcoming and kind and it was always great to talk to her. The house is lovely as well and although it is located in a rather quiet area it was easy to get to the city by bus every day. I will definitely consider to come back the next time I am in Edinburgh!

    We had a lovely time staying with Virginia, who is more than accommodating and hospitable. She looked after us very well, even printing some maps for me to take a walk up to Crammond Beach - well worth the trip!
    Thank you Virginia, perhaps see you next year!

    Living in Virginia's home was great! She is a very beautiful person with a big heart. Respecting your time and providing a briefcase for breakfast if you do not have time to do it at home. It will be a pleasure to return to her! I and my boyfriend enjoyed our stay

    Wisal and her boyfriend were lovely people. Because they left very early in the morning, I supplied them with a plastic food bag with water, fruit etc for their ongoing journey. They were pleased nay overjoyed with it.

    Virginia went the extra mile to welcome us and help us with any queries. Her very homely place is a wee way from the city centre, but the local bus is frequent and cheap and a great way to meet the locals. I would recommend this accommodation.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile. Our hosts have been advised that if they wish to request advance payment they must make this explicit in their profile. We do not recommend the use of Money gram or Western Union.
