During the Summer Break, we had the opportunity to stay in the Edinburgh Central Youth Hostel. We stayed from the 25th to 27th July. We paid around 65 pounds per person for a four-people room. The hostel is very closed from the centre of Edinburgh, about fifteen minutes by foot. You have a easy access to the bus which goes to the airport, you pay 2 pounds for a one-way ticket.
The hostel itself is equiped with an Internet connection (you pay 1 pound for 30 minutes of connection), a kitchen in the ground floor where you can cook your own meals (plates and cutlery are provided) but the hostel has also a coffee corner and a restaurant where you can order your breakfast and meals.
The room we had was very clean and big enough for the staying. If you don't have a towel, the reception will provide it for you. You can also use the washing machine.
If you need to buy some groceries, there is a TESCO closed from the hostel (about 10 minutes by foot). The staff was very nice and explained all you need to make your staying confortable.
So we enjoyed our staying in the city! Definitely we have to come back :)
