There is no wi-fi in the rooms; places with access are the restaurant and bar as well as a "chill-out room". The latter can get very crowded and there is limited seating space and electric sockets. It does not feel very chill-outy either... The hostel also has NO KITCHEN. There is only a microwave. On the plus side, breakfast is provided, the rooms are clean and smell fresh with great storage space under the beds. It's also the first parallel road to Princess Street after the train station!

It was a really goot hostel especially for the price and even breakfast was included. The only "bad" thing was the common room or so called chill out room cause it was very small and not reallly comfortable and you had to pay fpr leaving your lugage. But still a had a great time there.

Overall very nice! A negative point was that half of the showers were out of order and that the bathroom is mixed for girls and guys. We were in the fourth level without lift and it was quite loud in the room as we could hear the water from the bathroom. However, I can recommend it!

This hostel is not designed to really bring people together, seems mostly focused around the bar and only has one (pretty bad) 'chill out' area where you can have the opportunity to meet people. Feels more like a hotel than a hostel. And come on, wifi should be accessible from every room.

It was a awesome place to stay, was recommended to go here by a friend and I'm so glad that I did. The staff were awesome and helpful, the room was comfortable, the wifi was average but they were fixing it. Tr he shower always had hot water and the breakfast was plentiful. I was very happy and would definitely come back again

The location and the included breakfast are excellent. There are 2 bars at ground floor with good food and price. I hate that the lift was out of service, because I was staying at the 5th floor.

The room was good, the elevator didn't work at the time ( but they were fixing it) so it was a hike up the stairs. On our level 2 out of 4 showers didn't work and only one toilet had a lock on it the other two didn't close. But apart from these small things it was a central place that I would stay again

5 étages d'escaliers si l'ascenseur ne marche pas !! 5 floors of stairs if the lift doesn't work !! Sinon, c'est une très bonne auberge :) A very good hostel anyway :)

The bathroom was really dirty and no wifi in the fourth floor. The lift was no working so I had to walk 4 floors with all my luggage really tired.

The hostel is located in a perfect place to go to old town or a new town of Edinburgh, and the Beluschi bar is a nice place to eat and drink too. The staff was friendly, except a girl at the front desk who I asked for rent or buy a padlock, and she told me that they didn´t have padlocks in the hostel ( there a sing by the front desk offering padlocks to the guest). There´s no instructions how to use the electric shower. Thank you

Amazing hostel. Staff very friendly and welcoming. It complements your experience in the city. On christmas day, they offered a lunch to staff and guests for free. It was a very nice touch.

Bathrooms were a bit unhygienic and small. Holes and cracks in walls/floors. Lift was broken every time i stayed which was an incovenience with luggage. Bar area was pleasant however.

Absolutely loved this hostel. It in the most prime location, incredibly close to everything. The staff was super friendly, and the bar attached was great! There is a free breakfast but its not much, great when you are only there for a couple mornings though. There are a ton of stairs if you are on the upper floors and the elevator was down when we were there, but if you can't handle the stairs you probably won't like the city very much haha

It is located very central to other attractions in the city, FANTASTIC staff and bonuses for being a customer of the hostel. Had a very cheap but big night in the two adjoining bars to the hostel. I would stay here again without a doubt!
