We had high hopes for Princes Street East, but they were let down quite quickly after arrival. While the woman manning the desk was lovely, getting to the front desk was a pain, as it was up a ton of stairs and we had three large suitcases with us. It took about half an hour to get the key to our room (it wasn't the woman's fault and she dealt with it well, but it was still half an hour), and we went up more stairs to get to our room. The room was... frightening. There was a double bed and enough outlets, but someone must have left the window open and there were moths and bugs flying all around the walls and ceiling. We stayed out in Edinburgh extremely late just so that we wouldn't have to sleep in the bed because we were worried that there might be bugs in it. The bathroom was fine, but for the price we paid (during the Fringe so it might have been marked up) it should have been cleaner and more private. Frankly, it was falling apart and we got out early in the morning so we wouldn't have to spend another night in the hostel.
