I stayed with my partner over the May Day bank holiday weekend.
The accommodation was basic but comfortable. We stayed in a private room with twin single beds.
The stag parties that where staying weren't disruptive apart from the noise from the bar.
The only disappointing part of the stay was the group of teenage rugby players who made a lot of noise until security got them to be quiet. The hostel is based just off the Royal Mile by the Castle. The main shops are on Princes Street which is a 5 minute walk away. There is a nice park in the middle of Edinburgh and is an ideal place to sit on a bench with a nice ice cream. The main souvenir shops are on the royal mile and there is a good range of the usual gifts to choose from. It was are first trip to Edinburgh and well worth a visit.
There will be a lot of walking up and down hill involved which you need to think about.
