    Super clean, the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect, really close to everything. It's a top accommodation in Edimburgh to visit the city with a great value for money and comfort.

    Great place to stay. Room very basic but clean and bunk beds were comfortable. The hostel is in the heart of old town Edinburgh. Brilliant breakfast for the price and evening meals were also very good.

    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
    place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
    the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal
