    Hotel-like atmosphere with a clean dorm (female only). Dorm room was small but area is residential and quiet. Few minutes walk from city centre and close to Haymarket station. Inexpensive breakfast available.

    Stayed here while attending the Military Tattoo in August. At about a mile and a half walk from the castle, it's not exactly super close. The rooms are nicely apportioned, though already showing signs of wear, the carpets weren't amazingly clean, and we had issues...More

    West End
    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest

    crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
    sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
