Hi all,
I've got pretty solid plans to be in Edinburgh in July, probably arriving on the 20th. As the Edinburgh Festivals start in August, will I have any problem finding last minute hostel accommadation? I dont know my exact dates so I dont want to book anything until I get there, and I'm worried all the hostels will be booked out because of the time of the year.
Does anyone know if I will have any problems with this? or will there be accommadation available until the festivals start in August. .....

Can anyone help?

yep - it's best if you decide a date now and book for the length of time you want to stay for. The population doubles during the festival so accomodation may be hard to come by and during the summer months there are a LOT of tourists in Edinburgh - sometimes when travelling on buses the only conversations you hear are foreign ones over this time Good luck!

If you don't want to be dissappointed I would book asap otherwise you will miss out.

If you do it's time to get drunk and hope someone invites you to a party
