    The Art Roch Hostel is a nice and cheap accomodation if you're visiting Edinburgh. I've been there with my friend and we found it very easily by walking: the location is perfect, right in the centre, facing the Caste and near pubs and nice restaurants....More

    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
