This was my third visit to Smart City Hostels and may be my last. It has a great location and rooms are clean but this time we got a very cramped room with a curtain that couldn't be closed properly (letting in the light) and an en suite shower room with a stinking drain. The guest kitchen is short of glasses and mugs. The hostel can get a bit noisy due to large groups of school classes and music in the bar.
It costs about 20 GBP for a taxi from the hostel to the airport. If you walk down to Waverley station you can get the Airport Express bus for 3:50 GBP per person one way. Both journeys take about 30-45 minutes depending on the traffic. If you turn right out of the hostel and then directly left and work towards Holyrood, you will find a Tesco supermarket on your left after about 5 minutes walk.
