The only convenient thing about this hostel is that is close to Haymarket Railway Station and quite central, so you have some nice choices of places to eat and drink. The downsize is the cleanliness. I was lucky I didn`t need the use of the...More
Key info: if you are coming from the airport, take the bus with an anytime return ticket for £6:50. Buses run often, take about 30 mins, and stop a stones throw from the The Hostel. Thumbs up!

The hostel is central and appears very popular.
It has massive 21 bed dorms that face onto a busy junction opposite the station. The traffic noise, loud music, constant arrivals and departures, drunk or snoring residents will almost guarantee you will get very little sleep....More

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
the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
