    Staff was very kind and caring. Bedrooms were clean. Bathroom was perfectly clean. Definitely felt welcomed and kind of had the feeling of coming home! Planning to go back there when visiting Edinburgh.

    That small hostel in the centre of Edinburgh is perfect for young people. We spent 2 days there, the atmosphere is great, and the fact that the linked pub downstairs offers special prices for people staying at the hostel is a large bonus!

    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
    Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
