          Just downhill of New Town and attractively straddling
          a river near the elegant Royal Botanic Garden, it’s
          small wonder that Stockbridge became one of the city’s
          first hip neighbourhoods. It’s now one of Edinburgh’s
          most desirable, though many bohemian touches have
          fallen away as its residents have matured and the area
          has gentrified. Some second-hand shops cling on, but
          mostly residents display refined tastes in basement

          Why were two 19 yr olds put in a room with three males one of which was in his forties, what about safety etc? Is it too difficult to have a policy for same sex rooms unless otherwise requested?

          Hi there, We do have female only dorms, but the reservation in question was for a mixed dorm. This is clearly stated on the website. If they had requested a Female only room, this could have been avoided.

          Hi, My name is Giulio Pederzolli, I am a 24 old Italian guy just graduated in Labour Law who would like to do an experience in Scotland (preferably in Edinburgh) starting from the first half of June onward, to improve my English but having the possibility to self-finance this experience. I heard about the choice of working in hostels in exchange for accommodation and (perhaps) a small amount of money. I have no experience in the field but I am available for any kind jobs and I'm very motivated. I ask you if this is possible in your hostel. Thanks for your attention, Giulio Pederzolli.
