St Andrews is a popular spot for both tourists and international students. Easily accessible on a day trip from Edinburgh, the drive takes around one and a half hours, or just over two on public transport.
Full disclosure, it has been three years since I last stayed in this hostel, but it if always my first choice every time I’m in Paris.
I have stayed in this hostel a number of times, due to its proximity to work. Post gig or pre shift, it’s a good – if not basic – place to spend the night.

Amsterdam Day Three: Anne Frank and tourist traps
Day two started off on a bad note – a lovely bit of street harassment before 10am. Some guy walking towards us said something in a language I didn’t know and grabbed me round the waist with both hands.
14/01 /2017 It started with a 7am flight from Edinburgh to Amsterdam Schiphol. First flight I’ve been on where the morning is spent watching the sun rise.
