    The facility was in terrible condition and clearly hadn't been cleaned for a long time. Bathroom especially was in poor shape. The staff was fine but oddly recommended that if I needed anything I ask one of the other residents rather than the staff.

    Boutique Backpackers is a very dirty hostel. In the bedrooms, walls, windows, and bed surfaces were dirty. Litter from previous residents was pushed under beds. In bathrooms, there are large patches of black mould on the walls and well developed layers of grime show that...More

    First thing to point out is that all the photos on Hostel World etc. are misleading, and probably of somewhere else. We stayed 3 nights during the Edinburgh festival in a mixed shared dorm. As you walk in from the evening air and follow the...More

    West End
    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
