        올드타운에 있어서 위치가 너무 좋았다. 그리고 직원들 정말 친절하다. 조식은 빵과 과일과 시리얼 정도인데 2파운드이다. 커피랑 차는 무료로 제공된다. 8인실인데 좁다는 생각이 안 들었고 개인락커룸이 있어서 좋았다. 화장실과 샤원실은 여성 전용과 남녀공용이 있었고 딱히 대기 시간이 길지 않았다. 문 열면 바로 있는 침대를 사용했는데 공간 배치는 다시해야할 것 같다.

        价格非常不错,位置也不错”

        如果从火车站导航到酒店,一定会让你爬一段很长的楼梯,带行李非常不方便,建议绕一个圈避开楼梯,除非背包,那么很方便了。从火车站到酒店,从酒店到坐机场大巴的地方步行大约需要10分钟。但是就在爱丁堡最繁华的老街上,所以位置算是不错。 洗澡的地方只有2个,厕所2个,所以人如果很多的话会比较拥挤,有厨房,实在是太方便了。 到旅社有很长很陡的楼梯,提行李箱真的很要命。 放在房间的东西一定要收进柜子或者放到床底下,窗台上千万不要放东西,打扫房间的人居然会把放在窗台上的各种东西丢掉,我的两个包装满东西的居然被丢了,我去前台去垃圾桶里找回来的。。 前台可以打印登机牌这类的,每张10pence。
