Friendly staff and great location
In the foot of the Edinburgh castle, the Budget Backpackers Hostel is a good alternative for who are looking for great prices and location. The hostel has three options of accommodation: twin rooms, mixed rooms with 4, 6, 8, 10 or 12 beds and female only rooms with 4 and 6 beds. The shared toilet and shower facilities are out of the rooms and although is very clean and near to the rooms, it can be an inconvenience of the Budget Backpackers. I stayed in the 4 beds option and the room was small, but with reasonable comfort. The highlights of the hostel, for me, were the location, in the heart of old city and very close to the castle, and the friendly atmosphere, with people from worldwide and nice staff.
