    Good hostel and great location, about 10 yards from the High Street and Royal Mile. Good facilities, however the water for the showers was really cold after about 5 minutes. Had lockers in the 14 bed mixed dorm room. Good hostel for the price.

    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
    that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the

    Hi Alau85 Laundry servies are carried out by staff leaving you free to head out and enjoy the day. Washing takes 3-4 hours at a cost of £7. All items are washed, dried and folded. Safe travels

    There are free hairdryers located in the communal female bathrooms. If you are staying in a private room you can borrow a hairdryer from reception for free, you just need to pay a £5 deposit
