My friend and I stayed at the Globetrotter Inn for three nights in early September. Our flight from Cork was quite early so we arrived before check in time. The staff were very helpful and helped us stow our luggage in a locked room and told us how to get to town to have a look around while we waited for check in time.
Our room was great - we had a private double - it was huge for a hostel room, with a bathroom with a bath, a kettle with tea, coffee, milk etc. and we were given fresh towels each day - much more than what we expected from a hostel! Other facilities were great - large kitchen with everything you need, huge dining room, pretty cheap internet and the staff were all very friendly. Breakfast basic (cereal, white bread, tea and coffee) but fine - you can't complain when its free!
There's a minibus that takes you into town and back - have to book ahead for the busier times (morning) but its very convenient and cheap. Makes getting round very easy.
Nice location on seafront, not right in town, but I liked that about it!
Would definitely stay there next time I'm in Edinburgh!
