I've stayed at this hostel several times now and it never disappoints. Certainly not the most modern or up-to-date hostel I've ever stayed in, but it has all the facilities that you need. Every bed has a power outlet and the Wi-Fi works throughout the entire hostel. It also has a great fully equipped kitchen with free tea and coffee. The hostel is also clean and secure and is located right in the city centre. Staff are helpful and accommodating.

This is a good, comfy Hostel in a fantastic location, just off the Royal Mile. Their facilities and systems are good; My only criticism is that the bathrooms on the floor I was on are very cramped (turn sideways to get into one of the showers, stand beside the toilet to close the door). They've done the best they can with limited space, and they're functional. Just not much room. Everything else is good. Friendly & helpful folks working there, historic building, plenty of social spaces.

Great place to stay! It was a little noisy due to its location, but that is to be expected (noise wasn't necessarily the hostel guests, but people outside). Beds were comfy, and the facilities were very clean and plentiful. Would definitely stay again.

This is by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The layout of the room was great. It was clean and safe. The location was amazing! It was right on the Royal Mile in the middle of everything. And it was cheap! I would definitely stay here again!

Lovely place to stay, the staff were all very friendly and polite. Chill vibes at the lounge and kitchen area. Toilets were good, water pressure was good too. There are lockers in the rooms and the beds were well maintained. Overall, it has what a hostel needs, good people, nice showers and a clean bed to sleep in - recommended :)

It was ok. Problems with cleanliness were more to do with some of the people sharing the facilities. Noise carries really easily in this hostel, so bring some earplugs!
