Checked in and immediately checked out after seeing where I was supposed to sleep for 3 nights. They charged me for 2 nights because I had already checked in which is complete crap, however I was more concerned for my safety and hygiene to even...More
I am sad to read all of the bad reviews. Go to this hostel with an open mind. Yes, the building is old and therefore has some flaws but it also had a lot of character and really nice vibes. If you are a hippy...More

United Kingdom > Scotland > Edinburgh > Princes Street and Gardens
Glaswegians tease Edinburghers that their High Street is only half one, since buildings only line one side. But what they don’t say is how extraordinary the views are from Princes Street as a result. From here you look onto expansive and decorative public gardens beneath the mighty basalt cliffs on which Edinburgh’s Castle stands proud above the rest of the dramatic old town skyline. Yet many of those on Princes Street look
the other way, as they’re concerned with chain store shopping or catching the tram or a train at main train station Waverley. But it’s not all utility here; the Scottish National Gallery rewards purposeless wandering, and December’s huge winter market in the gardens begins a season of revelry which ends with Hogmanay, Britain’s largest New Year’s street party.
