The location itself is worth the price. The 18 bed dorm rooms are a bit uncomfortable bedding and tiny (as expected..it's a hostel). The wifi was very weak, however, and i work online. Very friendly and helpful staff.
First and foremost, there are many complaints written about this hostel about the basic amenities etc.
It's a hostel! Always remember that, you're not booking the Hilton, you're booking into a backpacking hostel full of youths and travel minded adults.

Great hostel. Great location. Staff were amazing and so helpful (especially with our suitcases up the stairs). Not great showers but hostel showers are hostel showers! Would definitely recommend this place and I'd stay here again !

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.
Hi Hayley. Our breakfast is £1.90 and we do have gluten-free cereal as an option. There's a car park at the Travelodge Hotel around the corner and it is £15 for 24h. Hope this helps. Your High Street Hostel team.
