I was stranded in Edinburgh due to the bad weather affecting transport back to the North West. All the staff I met at the hostel went out of their way to be supportive and helpful when I was quite distressed. It was a pleasure to stay at this hostel and I have already recommended it to members of my family. I would definitely like to return here. Thanks to all for their kindness. Cheers, Kathryn

Great hostel in a great location. Not much interaction with other guests, maybe due to off season.

I was surprised and amazed at how good the facilities were (not having stayed in a youth hostel for 45 years!). As ladies of a certain age, we found the services and facilities excellent. The staff were most helpful and that was much appreciated. Our only problem was lack of internet connection, but the staff were having the same problem so it was no-one's fault.
