The staff I dealt with were all really knowledgeable and friendly, and my bed was ridiculously comfortable. Having a locker big enough for my bag was nice, and the fact that there was no charge for it was even better. The kitchen was a good size, well equipped, and clean. Cheap prices at the onsite bar! The showers were the nicest I've ever seen in a hostel, and they have doors that lock and a place to hang all your things! I will definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Edinburgh.


Considering it's a hostel in a church it's not very nice to look at. I appreciated that there was a blow dryer to use and the showers were extremely clean. The woman at the desk was a bit mean but considering she was dealing with the rowdy rugby fans it's to be expected. Definitely not worth 25 pounds a night.


Unusual setting in a converted church although the original interior is largely lost due to the interior dormitory walls. Showers and toilets in different locations and showers were like something from a rugby pavilion, rough and ready. Dorms were fine and lockers provided, a nice touch which gives peace of mind. Kitchen was very open plan, good size, plenty of space. No television in the common area but does have wi-fi and there are mains sockets to re-charge your laptop. Beds were fine.


Located in a former church, the hostel is close enough to the city center. My room felt a little sad, lit by a single weak lightbulb. The water cooker was included, but due to the location of the plug had to stay on the floor. The desk was falling apart. The shared bathroom was actually well equipped and comfortably large, although it could be hard to get into in the mornings. On the whole, a good value for the money on a weekend when the city was full.
