Pues sí, el Kick Ass Hostels te lo pone todo en bandeja. Encontrarás el original casco histórico, los edificios emblemáticos y los tradicionales pubs y cafeterías justo al salir a la calle. Únete a nuestra ruta a pie, guiada y gratuita para explorar un poco y después tómate una cerveza con otros viajeros en nuestro bar.


Estamos en pleno centro de la ciudad. En solo 8 minutos llegarás a la famosa Royal Mile, una calle de adoquines bulliciosa y repleta de tiendas y cafeterías. En el recorrido desde el castillo hasta el Parlamento encontrarás museos, bares y gaiteros. Puedes comprar recuerdos en la calle Princes, probar la premiada ginebra en la destilería Edinburgh Gin y hacer fotos en el Greyfriars Bobby, uno de los pubs más retratados de Escocia. Para tus desplazamientos, ve hasta la estación de tren Waverley (10 minutos a pie) o hasta el aeropuerto (30 minutos en bus).

    Lo que más aprecio es la ubicación, está cerca de todo, sobre la calle de bares y restaurants, a la vuelta del castillo, a 5/10 minutos de todo lo turístico . Las habitaciones son amplias pero sucias. Las sábanas parecen sucias, tienen olor feo. La ducha es incomoda. Y el espacio común no es muy ameno, no te dan ganas de quedarte ahí. El personal es muy atento. Pero el olor y la limpieza les resta mucho.
