Good, But Bland. I don't mean that in a bad way. It's a big hostel, the facilities are very good indeed (comfy beds, big lockers, good showers), and the staff are friendly & helpful. The social space is either the bar or the lobby. If you're looking for a quirky and charming hostel to bond with fellow travelers in over movies in the lounge or long chats at the dining table, this isn't the place. If you're looking for a base to explore Edinburgh from, with it's own bar? Here it is.

Safestay was perfect for position: it's in the edimburgh old town and a lot of pubs and bars are near there. Room was perfetly clean, the bar in the hostel is cool and the atmosphere was calm and nice. Only one negative note: no common bathrooms except for the one at the bar (with no showers :\ ). Would definitely recommend!!!

Characterless, overpriced stagnant. Staff ranged from officious but efficient to completely disinterested. Not recommended. There are other much better hostels in Edinburgh.

I'm very happy with all aspects of the hostel bar one. The room I stayed in (10 bunk dorm) was directly adjacent to the entrance of BAR 50 and overlooking the smoking area. It was noisy until about 0200 on Saturday morning.

Really good, clean, modern hostel. Good value for money and very good location. Only thing I would have liked was a locker for valuables or a lock to rent (didn't want to buy one). Otherwise excellent.

Alcohol very expensive - I thought this was a student place - £4.40 a pint! Breakfast cold - chief blamed people opening the outside doors.
