The dorms for the University of Edinburgh are a little far from central Edinburgh, but worth the walk, depending on your budget. The room was a little sparse (it is, after all, a dorm, no TV or phone, but a table and en-suite bathroom/shower). The setting is gorgeous, the breakfast is all-you-can-eat, and lots of theatre groups stay there. I enjoyed walking through their rehearsals to get to my room, and they help to bring the spirit of the Fringe festival all the way to your lodgings. My room was quiet during the night, however.
