Because I’m traveling so much this year, I wanted to start a sporadic travel series on my blog. This series will have 3 categories: bites, sights, and highlights. Enjoy!
Before I went to Europe, I was a little weary of booking hostels. I mean, my friend H refused to book any hostels on her Eurotrip because she’s deathly afraid of bedbugs. But because I was traveling solo, I wanted to meet people on my trip. I used Hostels.com to find highly rated places, and I knew I didn’t want a party youth hostel. I stumbled upon Argyle Backpackers in Edinburgh, Scotland.
(Last two photos taken with Instagram. Follow me here.)
Argyle Backpackers was quaint, cute, and comfortable. It had clean showers, lockers, and a garden patio to enjoy when it wasn’t raining. I think the place used to be a huge house rather than a ho(s)tel…and thus meeting people felt like meeting family. All in all, it was the perfect place for my first solo hostel experience. Plus I met some pretty amazing folks. Chiara, Andrew, Hilde: this post is dedicated to you!
