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

Chill out room and rooms in general lack plugs! Location is great. Staff seems to careless about their jobs. Breakfast is good if you are there early enough.

There's no denial that its location is awesome, but that's it! Room's floor was very dirty, our ensuite room had problems with the shower and door, so we had to bathe in the external showers, elevator was broken, which is quite annoying when you were carrying heavy bags and had to stay on the 4th floor!! The floor doors were constantly open, and the room's door had problems closing - it could be opened by pushing it, no need for password. Bottom line is, won't coming back nor recommend it!!

The hostel is localized two Streets bellow the main street in Old Town, and 10min walk from the BusStation. It has a chill out room where you can socialize, enjoy the wifi and use the lockers (very usefull and cheap). We booked a mixed dorm and end up in a private dorm, which had a great view of the city. Our heater wasn't working and the recepcionist kindly bored her OWN HEATER for us, which was more than perfect. Great breakfast and great stay!!

The hostel is ideally placed for rail travellers and people who only have a short time to explore the centre of Edinburgh. Locker hire is available if you arrive prior to check in. Breakfast was basic but more than adequate. The only downside of the hostel was an extremely rude ex staff member who was Polish. He accused me of sitting on his possessions- a large, solid box in the reception area that was blocking everyones access. But apart from this, the hostel was great for a cheap city break.

I expected more from this hostel. Numerous bathrooms in the hostel were out of order and the ones that did work were not very clean. We had to move rooms mid-stay which was a pain. The staff were quite disinterested, and when my friend's jacket disappeared from our room, and they refused to assist us in contacting the other guy that had been in our room to see if he had taken it by mistake. It is feels very clinical. I would not stay here again, even though it is in a good location.

Perfect location, nice activities, not so good facilities, understandable since is located in an old building but the bathrooms need atention! Oh and they should change the product that they use to clean the rooms and bathrooms... It smells so bad!

The location to the train station and last airport bus stop was fantastic, and the staff were very friendly, but my duvet had blonde hair alll over it (I am not blonde!) and the shower flooded the bathroom whenever it was used, and the lockers are small so you can't fit a decent sized bag in them, but overall is a good place.

I had a good experience, I'd like the staff to be more friendly and customer- focused. the reception is such a small place. The restaurant must be cleaned on regular basis so it is nice to sit to enjoy breakfast.
