I need advice.....
We are planning to come to Edinburgh mid-August 2014 for about 4 nights to see the Tattoo and the festivals. I was skeptical as I knew the prices would be out of this world.
I have been researching accommodation for the last 3 hours. There is one hostel that is currently ~£12 per night per person. I'm worried it is an error as it is the only one at that price and on hostelbookers they have good reviews, however they have ALL bad reviews on Trip Advisor.
The next best price is £25 per night per person for a hostel. I'm hesitant to pay that for a cheap hostel that has inflated prices because of the month.
So... I've been thinking maybe we stay two nights in Edinburgh - especially for after the Tattoo. And the other two nights on the outskirts where it -correct me if I'm wrong- should hopefully be cheaper? And then catch bus or train in for the next two days?
