          Had a great overnight at the Hostel. Very convenient, across from the train station (not the main one but a quick hop away). Everything you need, including an affordable simple breakfast. Efficient and clean, with a very friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely stay again.

          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
          crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and
          sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along
