    This is my favorite hostel in the world! Caledonian Backpackers is reasonably priced and the staff is cool and very knowledgeable of what to do in Edinburgh, as well as what to do in the whole of Scotland for that matter. The room accommodations are clean and the other guests who stay there are very respectable of your space and being quite during resting hours. There is also a hip common space where they serve a complementary breakfast. They also offer video games, television and a pool table to socialize with other guests.

    First to Review

    At first I didn't know what to expect of this funky Hostel. The website's mascot is a cartoon thistle with shades on; the background, pink and lime green. However, reviews looked great. At that point, my friends and I decided that for $30/night, this would be the one..and oh, were we glad we chose it. Put simply, this hostel is a big, collaborative mural project. Once inside, you'll be greeted with wall-sized depictions of Totoro, Penguins, crazy psychedelic hallucinations and more. It is seriously one of the most colorful buildings I've ever set foot in! Although it might sound like a lot to handle, this hostel is excellent. Not only is it extremely safe, with 24-hour reception, it's clean, has a great bar with cheap drink deals, and free computers/internet. They also offer a free breakfast (which includes nutella on toast...if you're as much of a nutella nut as I am, pun intended). It's also extremely close to the center of Edinburgh and close to the castle. Although it's a bit of a walk to the entrance, I wouldn't have stayed anywhere else but here. Check it out on Hostelworld.com :)
