TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Hostel Edinburgh
We stayed there for four days and had a lot of fun with the other tourists. It is close to the city centre (walking distance) and the staff is really friendly and it's cheap and clean. The bathroom's are a bit small and I would not buy the breakfast because it's expensive for not much. Rather buy some stuff and prepare it in the kitchen.

Im so in awe with the Beauty of the ...
... the night before so no one was really looking forward to getting up at 6:00AM. We also got a bit lost on the way to Arthur's Seat so a few people were a bit on edge. However, once we made it to the top and could see the whole city everyone perked up. We made it about 10 minutes before the sunrise so we were able to see the city still lit up. It was a bit cloudy and we couldn't see the sun very well, but it was still ...
... our own tour, we caught sight of a bunch of people standing around a statue….these people looked similar to us, didn’t look Scotish and all had cameras around their neck and back packs on….yep it was the tour!!! We ran over to them and tried to disguise as if we were there all along…..but nope, the guide noticed and we had to cough up the tour fee….worth a try J We did get a lecture that we were VERY late and he was doing us a ...
