    Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
    university buildings in Southside, the sort of
    neighbourhood that supports a long string of
    second-hand shops and eateries serving ethnic food for

    for the Fringe, Edinburgh’s world-class comedy and
    arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking

    The rooms were quite large however the beds were regular double. I do think however you could possibly fit 3 people and it should fit a cot easily as well. Hope this helps!
