Largest fault is lack of soap provided in the restrooms. So be sure to carry a bar to clean up if you stay here.

This hostel is based at Kincaid's Court, which is normally halls of residence for students. We stayed in one of the sefl-catering flats, which was nice, as we had our own private room, while sharing the large kitchen and the bathroom. Staff were very competent and friendly, and although one little mistake was made on, the bill, it was immediately and smoothly corrected. The location too is ideal, very central, a stone's throw away from major attractions and very handy for nightlife.

Room was clean and tidy, staff were friendly and helpful and facilities are good for self-catering as long as you remember that you are staying in one of the student halls of the University.

This hostel had a lovely big kitchen with plenty of cupboards.......which were almost empty!!! There was hardly any crockery or cutlery and basically no cooking equipment such as saucepans, frypans etc. This made it very difficult to self cater meals, which is the whole point of staying in a hostel! I realise that it can be hard to keep items from being stolen but this kitchen was basically useless

Only one complaint i have there was noise outside in the courtyard by a group of Americans this went on till around midnight, i did ask them to quieten but they did not heed my request and since the staff at reception were busy i did not want to complain to them either as they had always been friendly and helpful.

Kitchen facilities poor, we stayed in Block 4 (which is the least well equipped). Bathroom cleanliness was not great. Fantastic location however

My room/unit was at the front, so got a lot of noise at night from Cowgate which is a busy boozy street.

A clean and pretty well located hostel. The place is a bit rough around the edges in places but for the money you can't beat it! The staff were great, good security with (in my case) a single private room with lockable door. Plenty of shower rooms that were in good condition. Overall, happy with my stay and would stay again.

One of the best hostels i have stayed at. The staff were friendly, i must make a special mention of ' Ashley ' one of the most charming, polite and lovelyist girls i have come across in a while. The room was very nice and the kitchen good, but slightly under equipped. The toilets and shower were ok. As another guest mentioned, a lot of noise from Cowgate, not a lot the hostel can do about that. Though perhaps a ' keep the noise down ' sign by the smoking area would be advised. No lifts.

A good hostel, reasonably priced for the time of year, nice sized rooms and friendly staff.

This is a good hostel. Its not expensive and its right in center of Edinburgh. The staff is helpful and the rooms are clean. Only complain that I can think of is that the rooms are rather small and simple. I felt like I was back in my university school dorm. Other than that I have no complains.

A bit confusing to get to if you don't know the city. But, it is a quick easy taxi ride to and from Waverly station. Very quiet area. Close to shoppes, TESCO, and wonderful eateries. Apartment block 1 has NO lift!! Very clean. Awesome staff. Comfortable beds.

Great Stay! Only downfall is there are no lifts and staying on the 4th floor was hard when you have heavy baggage.
