This hostel is located in the university student accommodation and is normally only available to book during the summer holidays. The hostel in Robinson Close is on Cowgate and only one/two minutes walk up a hill to the Royal Mile (Castle around 5 minutes away).
The accommodation is made up of three, four or six room flats. Each room is based on a single occupancy and then the bathroom and kitchen are shared amongst the guests. Three and four room flats have one bathroom, where the six room flats have an additional toilet/shower room. Each flat has a fully equipped kitchen, table and small soft seating area. Pots, pans and basic kitchen equipment are provided.
I the past two years I have been lucky to travel with a few friends and have managed to get a flat of our own.
The price of this hostel is high, however the single rooms and location make up for this. I think it would be difficult to get any other accommodation this close to the centre of the fringe for this price.More
