Not a bad spot. Very quaint and quiet. No lift to the third floor, and the bathroom isn't designed for big and tall people. Right by a bus stop, so easy to get into old town.

Well, we did make it to Edinburgh, but not without a lot of effort.

After touring the Palace, we began our climb back up the Royal Mile, stopping for drinks at a Turkish café and later in the evening for dinner at Jamie Oliver's restaurant. We really enjoyed the ambiance and the meal at Jamie's Italian. It was better than I expected a celebrity chef's restaurant to be. ...
... were very good. Oh and our hostel couldn't have been in a better location, everything was within a half of a mile around us so it was perfect!
The next day we woke up early for the free breakfast in the bar, it was only toast…. but it was doable, just a little hungry afterwards. We then went to Edinburgh castle and looked around there. It was really nice, great views of the whole city from the top and very interesting seeing the inside of the castle ...
