    Lot of issues with this hostel… 1. In all my years of travelling from top hotels to backpacker hostels, I’ve never encountered anywhere with check-in beginning at 4pm!!! Seriously? You might understand if check-out was late and the cleaning was excellent, but check-out is 10am...More

    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

    the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
    Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
