Checked in and immediately checked out after seeing where I was supposed to sleep for 3 nights. They charged me for 2 nights because I had already checked in which is complete crap, however I was more concerned for my safety and hygiene to even...More
I am sad to read all of the bad reviews. Go to this hostel with an open mind. Yes, the building is old and therefore has some flaws but it also had a lot of character and really nice vibes. If you are a hippy...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.
