It was an very nice stay at the hostel. There were a lot of activities organized by the hostel. Everybody was very nice to each other, you feel like home. There was breakfast for £1,80. The rooms, toilets and showers were very clean.
A great hostel with a great view. Super close to the royal mile and 'old' Edinburgh. The room was clean and the bathrooms were adequate. You can have breakfast there for only 1.50 £. The staff was super friendly. Definetly would go back there.

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
