A Good Traveling Stop

The staff at the West End was especially helpful, particularly when it came to bringing our bags up to our third floor room - as the historic house can't have a lift. However, the fact that it is in a beautiful historic Victorian house - and our room had a view of Edinburgh Castle - made up for the inconvenience of all stairs. Also, we appreciated the laundry services and other utilities that came with it being part youth hostel - though being part youth hostel came as a surprise. Overall good and good value.
