Paid £60 for a private 3 bed room but with shared bathroom (no gender seperation). We stayed at the top floor, no lift so would need to carry our luggage up all the way. Room has heater but not very warm.

This hostel is in the most perfect and picturesque location, right under Edinburgh Castle! The facilities are clean and quirky and the staff are friendly. The lockers are a great size for storing baggage and the security is excellent with 24/7 entrance monitoring.

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.

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.
