  • EXCELLENT location right in the middle of the Royal Mile, you can easily choose to go up or down in the small city. Be prepared for small rooms. Security was rated low because their lockers are small and cannot fit standard roller suitcase (that can typically be carried onto a plane).

  • Perfect location, incredibly honest & helpful staff, well set-up rooms, even the large rooms feel decently small. We loved our stay!

  • I really liked High Street Hostel. It's located right of the Royal Mile which is nice. The staff was really friendly and the place was clean and there was always hot water. We stayed in a double room on the 7th floor. The rooms were smaller than I expected and it was kind of hard to get on the top bunk without a railing to hold onto (maybe it's cause I'm short). I would definitely recommend this hostel.
