Bed sheets were stained. Tiny room for £90 night was an extreme rip off. Bed wasn't overly comfortable. Good location, friendly staff, secure due to hate you need to be buzzed through on production of a card given at arrival.

Very good location, very good common room, free coffee and large room. But the linen is a little bit not tidy enough, hope to have an improvement! ALL IN ALL, it's a really good place to stay in beautiful Edinburgh!

everything was amazing, the location is perfect, the staff is really friendly and there is a really nice atmosphere easy to meet people and make friends, it is also very clean which was surprising for me since i was in a 10 people room and there's one bathroom (with enough toilets and showers but still) for the whole floor. I really can't complain about anything, i only have a small request: please take care of the piano! is a pity to have such a beautiful piano out of tune ;) thank you!

Great staff, location and atmosphere. Everywhere was spotless however there was a slight smell in the kitchen units in the common room. Like they needed a deep clean. Facilities were perfect, however I have a suggestion for evening activities. Set a meeting place in the common room so people can meet and great before going to events advertised. HOSTEL BONDING.WHATS NOT TO LOVE

I thought the hostel was lovely and the rooms were bigger than I thought. The prices were cheap but that was an added bonus as the place went above and beyond to make you feel safe and secure plus the staff were willing to help with any problem and it was in a great location.

Great location, comfortable beds, a locker for each guest, and each bed one had an outlet to charge my phone/camera at night! I really enjoyed my stay here, and plan to come back to the hostel in the future! My only suggestion is adjusting the breakfast. Perhaps an all-you-can-eat breakfast for the same price. It was a little bit limited.

Really awesome hostel! Everything worked, large dorm was extremely spacious and I loved being able to open the windows during the day. Also loved having different common areas depending on what mood you were in. Highly recommend this place, hope I get another chance to stay. (Ps enjoyed the Auckland radio station playing in the bathrooms, felt right at home).

Loved my stay here. I stayed in the 14 bed mixed dorm. Beds were comfy and lockers were available. Showers weren't in the room but they were clean. Breakfast was cheap and good to get yourself going in the morning. Security was excellent. Wifi was good. Staff were wonderful! Will stay again.

Depending on what you are looking for this hostel could be okay. We stayed in a fourteen bed dorm, which smelt quite bad and wasn't very clean or tidy. It was quite expensive for not much value. The hostel is quite noisy. The bathroom facilities are not segregated for girls/boys. The bathrooms didn't feel very clean. Lots of common areas which is good. Breakfast was basic and not included (probably not with the £1.50 either).
