Is it quiet at night?We always try to keep the noise down in the hostel at night. However, we are right on the Royal Mile - Edinburgh's most famous and bustling street - and our super central location sometimes comes with a bit of street noise!
Hi, my flight arrives at midnight, is check-in possible around 1am?It is possible to check in after our reception closes at 11pm - you just need to let us know prior to arriving and we will let you know how you can check in :) RMB crew xox
My plane is scheduled at 0700, so can I check out around 0400?Hi there, we do have the possibility of checking out at that time, we can explain the arrangements on your arrival but it's perfectly fine! Thanks
Can I check in early at 9 AM? And check out normally when leaving but leave the luggage till 8 PM as the departure flight is at night?Check in starts at 3pm but after you check out we can keep your luggage for the day - RMB crew xox
