I've been to a quite a few hostels around Europe but am telling you,High street hostel in great. Very clean, the staff are welcoming. They make one feel at home. The fun is there is in full swing. Generally i highly recommend High street hostel to everyone wishing to visit Edinburgh. Please keep it up.
I loved the fact that it is was very clean, organized saved and very well located.
You know what they say... 'location, location, location'! High Street Hostel is right on the Royal Mile and is a great stay for anyone wanting to be in the centre of Edinburgh. It's big, bold and noisy; don't come here if you want a quiet night of restful sleep. It's fun and relaxed and right across the road from the Haggis Office which is great if you're joining a tour. Highly recommend.
It was very nice place, staff was very kind, the location is very good as well.
