          Fortunately we only spent one night in this hostel before flying back home. We booked a double room for quite a lot of money considering there are B&Bs which may be located further away but are cheaper and definitely cleaner. The whole place looks very...More

          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

          Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
          until after dark when strappy dresses come out to

          with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
          of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
