While there, the kitchen is messy as lots of residents don't actually clean after themselves. The noise from the street is so loud that there is no chance to sleep. The showers in budget backpackers are just too small to turn around once getting wiped...More

Stayed on a stag in Edinburgh. The location is just excellent. It is in the Grassmarkets area and is literally right beside the castle. It's a 20 min taxi ride from the airport. The hostel is walking distance to everywhere in the city.

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
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
