    West End
    Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in
    industrial Britain had their most desirable
    neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes.
    Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest
    citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind
    grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel

    sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along

    Hello Fernando, Our hostel is in a quiet neighbourhood, so it is quiet in the night. We also provide free ear plug if you require. I hope this helps.
