Staff were very friendly and helpful. Bathrooms clean, lots of room to move around. The hostel is amazing - huge kitchen/dining area, several lounges. Right next to the castle, great bars and restaurants around. Perfect place to stay

You will feel like staying in a castle. I personally like their common rooms and kitchen. All are spacious and everything is well equipped. One of the best hostels I've ever encountered. Highly recommend.

Spent five nights there, and couldn't be more satisfied. Staff is helpful and very friendly. Rooms and showers are really clean. Mattress was definitely good, even for a hostel. Slept pretty well there. It's also a good place for socialization, even better for lone travelers....More

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
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
