The Hostel is more like a Hotel. The rooms are nice and clean. The kitchen is not well equipped and there is no place for eating own food. But, you can place some food in the fridge and drink a coffee in the morning. There is no common room for relaxing or getting to know other people. If you want to have a cheap but nice accomodation with hotel atmosphere with your friends, this is the right place.

Really nice clean hostel- one of the best I've been to. Beds were comfortable and clean. Toilets and showers are all in the rooms which is really nice. There is a bar area that has a kitchen for everyone to use with lots of seating. Only small downside is there isn't a TON of common spaces if that is something you are looking for.

Loved it. Couldn't recommend a better hostel. Best location in the old town. Great rooms. Comfortable beds. Definite value for money.

The hoatel in perfectly placed within the old town, surrounded by little cafes and pubs. It's in between the castle and holyrood, so all main sights are within reach. Check in was fast and easy, the staff is nice and helpful whatever you ask them. I was used to adaptors for the plugs being integrated into the plug itself,so i had to buy a normal one vecause the hostel really only uses british plugs and has no usb station. I guess that's the only manko...

This was a fantastic budget stay! Greeted by an enthusiastic staff member, with a wealth of knowledge on local Vegetarian restaurants and things to do. The room was basic, but with added goodies of tea and coffee, desk, and a good shower (with towels). The breakfast was brilliant value, would highly recommend. Also, really close to Waverley station and the royal mile, honestly could not have been more central. If you don't mind bunkbeds this is definitely recommended!

Great place to stay, but charge us £20 more Than the booking price through Hostelworld, although I had the paperwork that said otherwise. Not pressed!

The lady who checked us was judgmental. She clearly preferred the hotel guests as opposed to the hostel guests. The other staff were more friendly though. Meeting people was easy, it was younger group of people in our room. Breakfast was great for what you pay for.

When I arrived to check in at three, there were quite a few people also waiting. only one staff member to check us all in. The check in process is tedious, as they take your details, and then you have to write them all out again. It isn't streamlined st all. Took me about 35 minutes of waiting to be seen to. Multiple guests also came down after checking in to say that someone was in their bed. Bathrooms weren't clean, and linen isn't on bed yet check out/in is 10/3. 5 hours to do what?

Great location, friendly staff and good size lockers in room. Bar is great for food and drinks as well as socialising. Big chain hostel so all the facilities are here which is very handy
