I allways use this hostel as a "transfer location" when I go to the the lovely Cairngorms. It's really a nice place to stay, clean and very friendly staff. Not really cheap, but okay. If you wake up early then you will have an okay breakfast, if you running late you'll only have some toast.

Perfect hostel for visiting Edinburgh, within 3 minutes from the train station and a 10 minute walk into the old town. Nice a clean and good kitchen facilities the rooms are as you would expect but you're only sleeping in them. All in all a great place and if I visit Edinburgh again it will be my first choice.

The staff where incredibly helpful, and polite. The facilities on there own where awesome, soft beds, clean sheets, and even better clean...

This is a clean and cozy place located in the city centre. It is right in the heart of Edinburgh, close to Old Town, coach and train station, and the bus stop to the airport. It is a small hostel, but the facilities are managed very clean and tidy. What I enjoyed the most is the kitchen, which is always...

I very much appreciated that all beds had a powerpoint and the staff were helpful and cheerful. The breakfast/ coffee inclusions were good but a more open socialising area would be helpful. In some less positive feedback - the room was quite crowded with very little airflow. The carpet and sheets could also use an update. That being said, it...

This hostel is located so close to Princes Street and the Waverly Station! They have free wifi and 3 shared computers in the lobby. The kitchen is fabulous, so big and roomy with big stoves and ovens. There is always free bread and some pastries available to munch on. One thing I disliked was the style of beds, you cannot...

Staying in New Town

Neighbourhood Profile
New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
