Princes St East Backpackers
Ranked #182 of 217 Speciality Lodging in Edinburgh
Reviewed 8 August 2010

the position is perfect, 2 minutes from the main station. ok, we have to say that there are over 100 steps to go in your room. if you're lucky you'll have a nice wiew on the city. beds are good and also showers. toilets not so clean but the blame of the hosts...maybe not polite. i suggest this hostel to backpackers cause it's very cheap and it's a good deal.

The close up to the hostel has a pub at the bottom, and a mans social club on the second floor. to get to the hostel you have to go past these and we found some very drunk men lingering about the close smoking, which was not too pleasant. Rooms were dingey and not particularly clean. Shower room on our floor did not work and only one toilet for a floor of 4 dorms...
not great would not go back.

Unfriendly staff and unkept property. No locks on dorm rooms. Be ready to climb lots of stairs when you arrive.
