While I found the staff friendly, and enjoyed a chat one evening in the dining area, I really didn't enjoy my stay here. I thought the facilities were limited - only 1 toilet, and a too small kitchen. There seemed to be limited privacy to shower and change, and there weren't enough keys to go round. This meant that you were either having to get off your bed, (cracking your head on the low upper bunk) or depending on a roomie to let you in, or leaving it snibbed open which was a security concern.

I stayed for two nights with two friends. We were in Scotland already for more than a week, and stayed in 3 other places before. We were surprised and very disappointed by this one. If the staff was correct, they were never welcoming or warm or helpful to us to discover the city. The decoration was really not warm and was old, the lighting very cold ; in the room we only had one white ceiling light, we could not read or stay up if the others were sleeping. The room smelled damp (...suite below)

It was okey for two nights but we definitely had better hostels... There was a terrible smell in our room and we didn't have any privecy in the bathroom! The staff wasn't very motivated and there weren't enough toilets. The men's bathroom was bigger and we didn't know why...

Good location and helpful staff but facilities were very poor. The hostel needs a major overhaul and upgrade to stay in line with others that charge similar prices. Bathroom was particularly bad with old, nasty towels on the floor for stepping on when you come out of the shower. Some decent water draining mats would be more sanitary. The shower room was also where the toilet was and other guests kept locking the door when taking a shower so you couldn't get in to use the sinks or toilet.

Nice hostel in general. Right next to main street. Rooms are small and comfortable, and the bathrooms were quite clean. There is a small kitchen and a dining hall. The staff was very kind and helpful.

Good beds, but no atmosphere, O.K for one night. Everything was very standard.

The hostel is very good located. The only thing is, that the kitchen is realy bad equiped and in a bad condition and it does not seem, that the owner takes care about. Even the toaster was broken, and it only was a 15£ plastic toaster, for a moment I considered to buy on from the next store...

The place is not bad....if you like old houses and rotting matresses... I will not lie, I did not feel "clean" sleeping in there, but it was at least cozy... Book only if you are in a budget or if there is no other options...like me...I had no other place to go...
