From Waverley station, enter South Bridge via Fleshmarket Close or Cockburn Street and Royal Mile.
From the Bus Station get to South Bridge, via Princes Street and North Bridge. Walk away from the city centre on the South Bridge. Take first lane after Royal Mile on the left (Infirmary Street). There is the Royal Oak Pub at the corner. Take the next lane on the left again, which is Robertsons Close. Climb down Robertsons close for about 50 yards until you reach the car park on the right. Cross the courtyard to find reception at the far end.
Edinburgh Metro is only minutes from the famous Royal Mile, Grassmarket, the Scottish Parliament and all the Edinburgh Festival action. Whether you're visiting Edinburgh for shopping, sightseeing or to enjoy the museums and nightlife, the youth hostel is an ideal base. This part of town really comes alive during Edinburgh Festival, with many terrific venues within a few minutes’ walking distance.
