My partner and I booked a private room with ensuite last minute for this hostel and were pleasantly surprised. We had room 3 on the top floor (disclosure its 6 flights of stairs) but when we got in it was a full apartment. The room...More
The best part of this facility is the customer service by the staff. They are all so incredibly helpful, kind and welcoming. We were surprised that our room was in a separate building down the alley. Unfortunately, we were kept up all night by the...More
Excellent Hostel. Staff were extremely helpful and friendly - numerous times they went above and beyond to assist. Fantastic location, close to bars, pubs and cafes. Rooms were very clean and spacious. Nice hot showers and clean bathroom and toilets.

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
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.
