My visit lasted only one night and it was such a homely place. Although I checked in earlier and left my baggage in the reception, I was invited for a warm and freshly prepared breakfast. The hostel is so centrally located that it is easy...More

I haven't done the hostel experience for many years so was a bit apprehensive at first but my stay at the Baxter was very pleasant.

This hostel was not what I expected. Although the location in the city is good, it is directly above a bar, which was very loud. You could hear music from the bar and noise from the street which made it difficult to fall asleep. In...More

Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.

It depends on which room you stay. The room I stayed was ok, very quiet, but I woke up in the midnight by the sound of people throwing beer/wine bottles outside, tho that didn't last for long. There's a bar downstairs, I'm guessing it was because they were cleaning the bar after closing.
I talked to a girl staying in the room opposite to mine, she said her room was very noisy at night, can hear the sound from the bar until it closed at 12.
