    Old Town
    Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
    labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests
    this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly
    visitors, tartan-flavored souvenir shops, and pipers
    that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the
    place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as
    the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal

    Hi, I'm afraid we don't offer weekly rates and the maximum stay is two weeks.

    Hi Hayley. Our breakfast is £1.90 and we do have gluten-free cereal as an option. There's a car park at the Travelodge Hotel around the corner and it is £15 for 24h. Hope this helps. Your High Street Hostel team.
