Positives: Easy check-in Decent price for Edinburgh Breakfast was good Place was clean Two Pokestops on campus! ;) Not-so-positives: Found out about halfway my stay that these were the freshmen dorms for the university Pretty poorly/cheaply built building when it comes to sound traveling through walls; as a result, slept terribly I was the only person on my entire wing for a week, which made for a sometimes creepy (The Shining-like) atmosphere, especially at night

I booked one bed private room, and it seems to be Edinburgh University dorm. It is basic but more than enough at this budget. The breakfast is great: university canteen help-your-self full English / Scottish breakfast, plus bread and cereal and yogurt and fruit. The only thing you might want to be careful is that the noise next door can be very loud. The wall is not sound proof at all. :P

Absolutely superb stay in a dormitory only 10-12 minutes by bus from Edinburgh city center. Each floor had private bathrooms with shower or tub and HOT water, also nice smelling lemon grass soap free of charge. Huge breakfast included in charge. Extremely helpful/friendly staff, like in most parts of Scotland. Olympic swimming pool just next door. Many opportunities to meet/talk with people from all over the world. I much preferred Pollock Halls over crammed hostels I have stayed in.

Fantastic accommodation. Super friendly staff, very secure and clean. Location is about 30 mins walk from central train station, but it's an easy and pleasant walk. The hostel/hotel is right at the base of Arthur's Seat which was great for going for walks and runs within the beautiful surroundings. Enjoyed my stay!
