          Almost on the Royal Mile. The room was clean, so were the bathrooms and toilets. The facilities in the kitchen were excellent. Many guests were cooking up a storm and they had movie night on one of the nights we were there.

          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

          the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal

          Hi, Is breakfast included with the room, and can you cater for gluten intolerance? Is there any parking available near the hostel? At what price? Thank you, Hayley

          Hi Hayley. Our breakfast is £1.90 and we do have gluten-free cereal as an option. There's a car park at the Travelodge Hotel around the corner and it is £15 for 24h. Hope this helps. Your High Street Hostel team.
