Princes St East Backpackers Edinburgh Reviews
Awesome stay in Edinburgh Nov 19, 2011
The climb up the stairs is quite a mission, but it's worth it, and you can enjoy the brilliant artwork on the walls along the way. It's a very fun and social place, with large kitchen, dining room (with internet available), and downstairs is a large TV/video room with a decent collection of VHS. The staff at reception are really friendly and have great tips on where to go etc (like the recommendation to eat at pub "1780" - awesome food! and cheap eats around corner at Snack Cafe). They also provide relatively cheap laundry facility (though you have to queue for the one washing machine, one drier).
Note: the place can be bit of a maze, but that's part of the fun. Enjoy exploring it and being directed to 'find Darth Vadar' etc.
The location is brilliant for exploring Edinburgh, which you can easily do on foot.
If you're into live music, I recommend finding pub "Whistle Binkies".
