    This a low-budget hostel. I enjoyed my stay here, but I was't expecting much since I knew how little I paid. When booking a room, note that the rooms go "A,B,C . . ." and the further along the alphabet, the further from the front...More

    Fortunately we only spent one night in this hostel before flying back home. We booked a double room for quite a lot of money considering there are B&Bs which may be located further away but are cheaper and definitely cleaner. The whole place looks very...More

    Poor accommodation in a wonderful place! The hostel is located 3 minutes from the main station (bus/train). There're 70/80 steps to reach the hostel, because you'll have to ramp till the highest floor of the building; this is not a problem, will keep you healthy!...More

    New Town
    Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town,
    until after dark when strappy dresses come out to
    play. This is the city’s central business district
    with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many
    of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest
