I've stayed three times at this hostel. I had a great stay even if I'm not a fan of sleeping in shared dorms. The dorms I stayed in were spacious and clean although the shower rooms were a bit cramped. I enjoyed the breakfast and meals at the on-site cafe and restaurant.
On my last visit (September 2012) I made use of the kitchen facilities to cook my meals (in order to save money) and I shared a 3 bed dorm (I was apprehensive sharing a dorm again after a bad experience at the hostel I stayed in whilst watching the London Olympics in July 2012)! The stay was all well and would stay in this hostel again.
Unique Quality: This hostel is in the city centre, not far from Carlton Hill, Princess Street and The Royal Mile. There is a wide range of sleeping options from twin rooms to 8-bedded dormitories. All the rooms are ensuite and equipped with lockers. There is an on-site cafe, bar and restaurant and there is a kitchen available for self catering.
Directions: A 20 minutes walk from Walverley Station via Princess Street, St James' Shopping Centre, Leith Street and after the Picardy Palace roundabout, the hostel is on Haddington Street.
I will be stayed at the Edinburgh Central hostel of SYHA next month for 7 nights.
What is the cheapest way to make a call back to Toronto Canada ? Where can I buy the international phone card in the city centre ? Does the public phone charge by minutes or like in Toronto just pay two quarters can talk as long as you want.
Please advise and thank in advance.
There will be places to buy phone cards everywhere, most nesagents and mnay other shops. Calls will be charged by the minute from public phones. Public phones will be cheaper than hotel phones and mobiles.
pity?if you had use of a landline,the best card to buy is the post office international card £5 and per second charge,or go to carphonewharehouse.co.uk and buy there simcard [if you have a mobile] its cheap to use
