Poor accommodation in a wonderful place! The hostel is located 3 minutes from the main station (bus/train). There're 70/80 steps to reach the hostel, because you'll have to ramp till the highest floor of the building; this is not a problem, will keep you healthy!...More
Good location and relatively clean showers. Bed was really uncomfortable and toilets weren't very clean. So many stairs up to access the hostel which is not good. Would not return here. Room was noisy and cold. Only positive was the price but I would pay...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
