    Great for what it is, in an excellent location and really good value. Don't always love sleeping in a hostel but this was good and comfortable enough. Was great being so close to the everything in the city centre, walking distance.

    High street hostel located near Royal mile and closed to many tourist attractions in Edinburgh. I stayed in female dorm and it was good. The rooms are clean and reasonable for money. I recommend this place as it close to many places.

    Old Town
    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

    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.
