The staff here are truly invested in the success of the hostel, and were easily the best part of my stay. The rooms were, however, somewhat cramped. Overall, a reasonable stop-over.


sraff were fantastic. very helpful. a comfortable place to stay for sure.


I stayed here with two female friends for a weekend. The location is great- easy access to most of the city. The hostel was very clean and you get a great free breakfast. A particular thanks to William who was unbelievably helpful with everything during our stay!! Only negatives were that the room (4bed) was tiny and the showers weren't super but they were hot so we managed! Would definitely recommend!


Good hostel but it is a bit small / crowded. The kitchen area is difficult to get in and out of etc. The rooms are also crowded but I appreciated the international powerpoints and the bed was comfortable. The staff were lovely and the location is great!

Hi Thank you for your positive feedback. We are glad you enjoyed our super comfy beds and international power points for charging your appliances, one per bed. We do appreciate that space can be an issue at times due to our centrally located Edinburgh Hostel. To ease this we do offer the use of our gallery lounge area for you to relax and enjoy refreshments in should the kitchen or rooms be a bit crowded. So glad you appreciated our staff and hope you had a wonderful time! Thanks.


Great stay! The staff are very nice, and there's someone to help you 24-7! But the stairs are pretty tiring...


I had booked this hostel because of the airport shuttle they offer but only later learned that the shuttle cost 35 pounds (which was nowhere mentioned on their hostelworld site), which was frustrating to learn since this hostel is relatively more expensive than many others in Edinburgh. It was a fine hostel, clean and good location, but nothing special for the higher price.

Hi Thank you for taking the time to give us your valued feedback. We are happy to offer an airport meet and greet / shuttle service. This is a paid service which is clearly stated on our website. We are always happy offer transport options and free advice as we did for you. We must question your higher price comment as you only paid £16.50 inc breakfast,WIFI,etc.We are glad that you had overall a good experience and would love you to stay with us again in the future Many Thanks


Wifi did not work and there was no locker for luggage but the staff were very helpful and accommodating and even gave me early free breakfast at 3:30am before my flight, five min walk to airport bus. Would stay again for a short period of time :) was perfect for my needs.
