<FONT COLOR=blue>Scotlands Top Hostels</FONT> (chain)<BR>
I stayed in the ones <U>underlined</U>.
11 pound per night

Unique Qualities: <BR>
<FONT COLOR=blue>all of them hostels have:</FONT><BR>
<B>free <I>hot chocolate</I>, tea and coffee</B> in the kitchen, internet access (alas sooo expensive!), snuggly lounges, nice receptionists, sometimes mixed showers *harhar* (but <B>not</B> group showers), funny room and bed namings (e.g. room 'diseases', bed name 'drinking' or 'lung cancer'...), good locations in the cities' centres, lots of information stuff, no curfew or something like 2.30 a.m. at least<BR>
Oh, and a rather low security level - no keys or lockers, valuables can be put in the hostel safe, but if you're absolutely into security, this may not be the right accommodation for you...
<FONT COLOR=blue>Castle Rock has:</FONT><BR>
a free movie every night, nice paintings on the walls,
quick access to the castle and Princes Street Gardens<BR>
<FONT COLOR=blue>Oban Backpackers has:</FONT><BR>
a very nice lounge and a pub right opposite to it, so if you happen to need this feature: you can easily roll home after getting pissed ;oPP<BR>

Price Comparison: less expensive than average
Directions: <BR>
<U>Castle Rock Hostel</U> (just below the Castle), 15 Johnston Terrace<BR>
<U>Royal Mile Backpackers</U>, 105 High Street<BR>
High Street Hostel, 8 Blackfri
