We originally booked just two nights but decided to stay a bit longer because we liked the hostel/city so much. We had to change rooms as we were booking the extra nights last minute, but the staff were really helpful. The staff were also good for advise with tours/things to do and made an effort to help. The atmosphere was good. Facilities were good, kitchen helped us stick to budget and there were power points at every bed. They also run a pub crawl which was really fun with the sister hostel.
Please get rid of the urine smell.
Good hostel. We should not be paying for breakfast though. I found that unusual. Very quiet.
The staff was awesome! We had someone with us in our group who was gluten free and they helped us find a number of different restaurant options. Then later on in our stay when the same staff member was working she remembered us and asked how they turned out. They also have an awesome laundry service that made our trip a lot easier. Overall a great place to stay in Edinburgh!
Not the most social of hostels. Great location and kitchen space. If you're traveling in two or more or want a relaxing time on your own hostel would be beneficial for you.
It was great for a cheaper and great location. We were happy with the beds and layout and would definitely stay again.
Rooms were good, very handy having the lockers there. Breakfast could be improved (perhaps more fruit).
We only stayed a night but i liked it!! Very cool feel, great staff, awesome location! Lockers in room are great to have.
Good location. However the room is very small and the bed for 2 is small. I considered it as a single bed rather than a bed for two.
I would definitely recommend staying here. The staff were so helpful and the kitchen is great. Good atmosphere, amazing location, all round top hostel.
cheap and good. rooms are clean and spacious with lockers. good atmosphere and vibe to the place. walking distance from the castle and train station. located in the city centre as well
Really great hostel. So close to everything and staff are great. 24 hour staff as well which was helpful because I needed to check out quite early on my last day.
very well situated, just beside the royal mile, beside Edinburgh Castle. The staff were very friendly and approachable. I enjoyed my time there. The kitchen and dining area could do with a remodeling though. There is a fantastic Street tour outside the the hostel for free, would recommend it for anyone who has an interest in the history and culture of the city.
High street hostel was great. The only thing to note is that our room was street facing and the noise from outside was very loud. Being ear plugs if you're a light sleeper because it can be very loud especially on weekends.
I like there are hot water for tea or coffee or other for guests need all the time in the kitchen. Staff also followed up well the clean and tidy up of the kitchen.
The staff wasn't very outgoing like the majority of my other hostiles. They were nice, but didn't go out if their way. LOVED the lockers and safe in the room for my valuables and it was the BEST location. The only problem I had was a woman outside nt window scream profanities and guest yelling out their windows instigating her, it was 3:45am and the staff working that night didn't do all they could to stop it, and it went on for an hour and a half
We spend to nice days there, even the smell of the room and the hostel was not the best...! Apart of that nice localization and nice staff.
Very clean, fresh towels every day, great location, lockers available in room, massive kitchen and social space. Extremely good value for money!
Stayed at the hostel for 3 nights in June. Check-in was good and the staff were friendly and helpful. The shared bathrooms were kept clean. Medium sized lockers were provided (with key), and everything felt safe/secure. Location is great, really close to the train station and right off of the Royal mile. The bed was pretty hard, but other than that everything was good with this hostel.
