I booked this fairly last minute for New Years as I was late to the party, all my friends booked their accommodation earlier on.
As all other reviews state, the location is just perfect. You are as central as it gets, prime location!

Located at the main street in the heart of the old town. Not too big, clean, safe and good facilities. Bathroom could be spacier but it was enought for the number of guests. Super nice and friendly staff. Lisa contacted me by email to confirm...More

Great hostel and centrally located in old Town. The staff was super friendly, place was clean but small. If your are leaving on the Haggis Adventure tour you roll out of bed and across the street to pick it up. Lots of food and pub...More
This is a great place to stay if all you need is a bed to sleep in and clean bathrooms. It's a simple place, which I liked. There were lockers and outlets for each bed. Bathrooms were gender-specific and adequate. A quiet place in a...More

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 Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
