    The staff were nice and helpful,very welcoming and chill. The hostel definitely has a strong smell but you get used to it... it's a weird pungent synthetic sweet smell if I had to describe it. The showers are great. Don't be deterred by distance to the royal mile, it is not far at all, 10-15 minutes walking. I ended up extending my stay over a week. it is a comfortable place. I felt secure.
