Which hostel halls in Edinburgh do you mean? I googled and am uncertain.

Generally I wouldn't think a hostel is an ideal place for a 16 mo toddler, most of them are geared to solo/adult travellers. You're not going to find travel cots etc available, how much luggage are you planning on hauling around?

I haven't stayed in any but here is a list of ones that seem to have family rooms - the SYA one looks quite modern

its euro hostel halls on cowgate. they lease out hostel rooms in summer when the stuents r off on holidays. is there anyone who stayed in these hostel halls?

Here are some reviews - but none of them travelled with a toddler. However, they say the staff are very friendly, maybe you could phone and ask them if it'd suit your circumstances?
