          Title says it all - it is REALLY dirty and really old! We stayed there because it was close to the center and it was cheaper than other places but I would not do that again or recommend this place... And it is VERY noisy!

          Old Town
          Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
          labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
