  • The toilets were not very clean in my area and there was a lot of mold. It was also on the fifth floor without an elevator, which was a bit hard - unfortunately I couldn't benefit from the view though.

  • I enjoyed my stay in Edinburgh at the Princes Street Backpackers hostel. The location is quite good, the atmosphere was nice, especially with the Fringe festival in the city. The only minus would be two hour internet access only! If you use it wisely, it will last, but it depends on the length of your stay. The kitchen is well equipped and there is free tea and coffee, however, you need to buy milk separately, which is a bit unfortunate. All in all, a good stay.

  • The staff was very nice and made me feel welcome and helped with any of my queries. However, I hadn't realised that there was a nightclub or a bar couple of stairs underneath from where I could hear music a bit too well into the room I was in.
