Get the Airport Bus (No 100) or Tram to Waverley Train Station and then follow directions as below.
We are about a 10-minute walk from Waverley Train Station.
Exit the station at Waverley bridge (the other exit from the train station is onto Princes
St). Now, facing the castle, go left on Waverley Bridge and walk to the end, where
there is a small mini-roundabout. Turn right here onto Market Street and walk up the
hill to the end. Then turn left onto Bank Street; follow this road around and up to the
traffic lights. Continue through the lights onto George 1V Bridge then turn right at
Victoria Street. Walk down to the bottom of this street and then turn left towards a mini roundabout. You are almost here! On the far side of the mini roundabout you'll find us! Look for the Budgetbackpackers sign.
