Great hostel! One of the best I've stayed at. Location, staff, lounges, cleanliness, all great. The only two things I would improve is the variety at bkf and more toilettes per floor. Excellent stay in a beautiful city

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
