Hostels in Edinburgh for UAI and IJCAI

I'm going to be spending 24 Jul 2005 - 05 Aug 2005 in the UK for UAI-2005 and IJCAI-2005. My folks will be vacationing and stay with me; we'll overnight in London on the 24th and continue on by rail to Edinburgh for 11 nights.

We've decided to take a private quad room, double twin room, or pair of twin rooms in a hostel - preferably as close to the city centre as possible (the optimal locale is equidistant from the city centre, where IJCAI will be, and the University of Edinburgh, where UAI will be).

Here are a few options I've found so far:

Any recommendations for these or other hostels in Edinburgh?

Party Central, Sin City, and Why DO They Have COMDEX There, Anyhow?
My mom is actually out and about in England and such as I type this (I just talked to her from a net cafe about 2 hours ago!). I will try to find out if she's been near there or not.
Sounds good!

The hostel she's staying at is apparently party central... lots of... inappropriate behavior going on amongst some of the other travelers. Or maybe its just that I've grown up in small town America and am not used to such things :D
Oh, tell me about it. GECCO-2000 in Vegas was "an eye opener, and no mistake", as my namesake would say.

If I find out stuff though soon I will let you know!
Thanks!

randomchris runs a business specialising in finding accommodation for large and small groups, and operates out of Edinburgh. I would therefore suggest a quick mosey to his journal and may be a comment or two might find a recommended hostel, a good rate and easy organisation.

The LJ network - accept no substitutes...

No suggestions on hotel, but it sounds like an awesome trip, and I hope all of you have a wonderful time at it.

Thanks
Will do! Aside from the technical sessions, tutorials, and workshops, this is shaping up to be a very good photography op.

Oh, I'll do better than that...
I full expect that Edinburgh will serve as the inspiration for more locales from tanelos, as the Bay of St. Lucia, Acapulco did!
