Cheap fun accommodation in perfect location!!!
Perfect location, just up the hill from the main street (princes street)
The hostel does offer private rooms but iv not stayed in them so I cant comment. Iv only ever stayed in the large dorms room so I can only really comment on them, which are just what you expect from a hostel, normal bunk beds, lockers, personal lights by your bed, clean etc
There is a social room with big comfy sofas, TV and table and chairs. I normally always arrive way before check in due to Ryanair flight times so i am normally sleeping on the big comfy sofas before check in time.
The hostel also offers luggage storage which is very handy.
The staff are really really friendly and are full of information on what to do and where to go. The hostel also runs ghost tours aswell as a few other excursions, I can’t really remember all of them.
Now for the bad bits – cold showers :(
I have stayed at this hostel a few times now and the showers are always cold between 6pm-9pm. The showers are hot in the morning it just seems to be between them hours when it is freezing.

Great location, friendly staff Jun 24, 2010
Edinburgh Bacpackers os in a great location..just a step from the Royal mile which is a very scenic street with lots of shops, restaurants and pubs..15 minute walk to Edinburgh Castle and to Cowgate which has a lot of pubs around the area..we stayed in a private room with a bathroom so it wasnt overly cheap but the room was a good size we were in a seperate alley then the actual backpackers ( as all private rooms are) but we went into the building few times and it seemed well put together..with a common room with a tv a lot of tourist info around, a games room with a pool table and computers for the net.
