One of the most desirable cities to live in the UK, Edinburgh will tempt you out of your dorm and lead you on a merry dance around a city centre overflowing with things to do.  And with grand-but-cheap and gloriously shabby-chic hostels downtown, you can properly live the Edinburgh experience without breaking the bank. Just a hop, skip and jump from the city centre youth hostels are bars and shops, museums and the great outdoors that will help you work up a non-too-wee appetite.  Time to jump into the Scotland’s beating heart and have a mense time youth hostelling in Scotland’s capital.
