Atmosphere like home, felt like my own, one of the receptionist, Anna, is fantastic help and very hospitable. Rooms were very good enough, I stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm. Warm water offered each and every time, clean washrooms and showers. Clean rooms. A bar on first floor, low-cost drinks, TV room. Living room, kitchen, fantastic no cost breakfast. Wonderful guide to pay a visit to places. Provided me with a noise no cost room at the last minute on my request. Trendy and most artistic one in town. I loved it absolutely.

The Caledonian Backpeckers is at walking distance of everything, is the city center, with view for the Edinburgh Castle. the breakfast was good. The staffs were really helpful and friendly, they even let us use the common areas of the hostel after our checkout whilst we waited for the flight time.
