    The place is very clean, the kitchen is well equipped and you can get breakfast for under £2. It's very well located and staff were really kind. You also get discount in a pub nearby. I would definitely go back.

    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

    the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal

    Hi Hayley. Our breakfast is £1.90 and we do have gluten-free cereal as an option. There's a car park at the Travelodge Hotel around the corner and it is £15 for 24h. Hope this helps. Your High Street Hostel team.
