    I stayed in Sakura guesthouse in Edinburgh for one night last Wednesday on 12/7 and the room was very small and uncomfortable.There was a shared WC and personality I consider this place as one of the worse until know. But the owner was kind.

    Many of Edinburgh’s student hangouts gather around
    university buildings in Southside, the sort of
    neighbourhood that supports a long string of

    arts festival which headquarters itself here. Flanking
