It is a really nice apartment with comfy beds, and a nice location (about a 20 minute walk into the centre of Edinburgh). Even though I wasn't there for sightseeing Jon gave me a lot of recommendations. It was nice to have breakfast provided and the shower was really good.
This was a nice break from the hostels the shower actually had hot water and pressure which was amazing. The kitchen had good facilities but most of the dishes were stained cleaned them before an after use and still just looked dirty
Jon goes above and beyond to make you feel welcome in his home. He is quick to offer up suggestions of places to visit and can even recommend hostels in other cities outside of Edinburgh because he has stayed in them himself. The accommodations were clean and as an added bonus included bedside USB port chargers, reading lights, privacy curtains on the bunk beds. All in all it was a wonderful stay!
JonJo was an amazing host and we really enjoyed our time with him! If you're looking to have an authentic Scottish experience, with a lovely host, this is the perfect place. It's located away from the main drag but right next to beautiful Arthur's seat and Hollyrood house, and the main part of Edinburgh is about a 10-15 min walk. Jon was a blast to spend time with, was super helpful and gave us loads of great Scottish history. Definitely will come back.
It was a interesting experience, it is an apartment where the owner lives but he is a really good guide and he will help you enjoy all your stay. If you are going to Edinburgh and you wanna experience the real Scottish friendliness you should go there :)
