Straight opposite the Haymarket station or 20 minutes walk from Waverley. Decent room with fairly good facilities. Some of the showers were dodgy in the sense that they went hot and cold, but everything else fine. Lady on reception lovely.
The hostel is located at the doorsteps of Haymarket station, with tram and bus connecting to/from the airport 50 meters away. It's also not far from the city center on feet (around 20 minutes), although tram is also an option.

Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
