I stayed in room N which was in the upper part of the hostel (which means even more stairs once you've made it up to reception). The toilets on this floor were out of order so there was only 1 toilet/shower (in the same room...More
The only outstanding feature of this hostel is the central location, you literally step out the door and across the street you will find the main shopping street in Edinburgh, Princes St.
The pluses end there for this hostel because it is a total dump....More
Horrible experience, from the moment I first entered the property to the bitter end. First of all, it's a 77 steps climb to the hostel. They try to joke about it (it's even in their WiFi password), but there's no way around it: these 77...More

Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric
squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.
