Hostelworld says

Budget Backpackers is in the lively Grassmarket area, surrounded by bars and cafés and within walking distance to sites around central Edinburgh. The hostel features quiet, clean and comfortable rooms and highly praised pub crawls and walking tours. Guests have told us there's 'lots of common areas to meet people if you're travelling on your own' and that they 'recommend it for people who are looking to party and meet people'. We've noticed that several of their guests have returned to stay there again and again.
