Really enjoyed staying here! I feel that anyone who is staying in Edinburgh should stay at Castle Rock. Everything about this place is awesome. Will definitely come back in the future to stay.

Fantastic location. Wifi was good bit would drop out at times. Overall the staff were helpful however there was one lady who was very rude to some guests. If you're a solo traveller it is a great place to meet new people

Well, the double private room is very narrow. It would be fine for one person, but still tight, you can imagine for two. The common areas are nice. The good point about this hostel is the location, a stone's throw from the castel.

This was a perfect location to get everywhere in the city. Walkable distance from the train station and literally right next to Edinburgh Castle. The staff were friendly and helpful and I felt very comfortable and safe there.

I choose the Castle Rock Hostel mainly for the location which is perfect. Despite I have been accommodated in hotels and B&B most of the times, definitely hostels are the best option if you want to meet more people from all over the world which I did! The staff was friendly and helpful. If you are the type of person who can´t survive going out without breakfast, they also have a nice breakfast option if you wish. It has been a great trip to Edinburgh, I´ll come back to Scotland!! Thanks

Some of the staff were very rude, but red head Scottish girl,French girl ,and is Australia girl very nice,there one staff that really annoyed me she had glasses,short blonde hair, and she was Australian,here some advice, get out of hospitality sector, it's time to find a new job,to many live in staff who seem to hate people,not a place for backpacker or solo travelers, could be the best hostel in Europe, but sadly it won't until somebody that's the finger out, sorry again

I had a great stay at Castle Rock, probably the most comfortable and home-like hostel I've stayed in. The staff is very friendly and the location couldn't be better, very accessible to many cool spots in Edinburgh. Definitely a great value for the price you pay! I highly recommend staying.

We LOVED Castle Rock Hostel. The staff were lovely and always willing to help. The building was amazing, the breakfast was a great start to the day, the living rooms were a great place to relax and meet others. We stayed in a double room which was absolutely spotless and quiet too! Loved the fun atmosphere including the new on the doors. We will definitely come back here!!!

We had a great stay at the Castle Rock Hostel. The room was clean and the employees were very friendly and helpful. The hostle is next to the Edinburgh Castle and the City is 10 minutes per feet. Breakfast is 1.50 Pounds and there is hot water. But for cooking your own lunch/diner the kitchen is not appointed enough.
