Only stayed for one night but a large French group were there also playing loud music, banging doors, shouting. Just running riot on my floor which was annoying.

I had a great visit at this hostel...nice common area with a pool table and TV, comfy bed, modern kitchen. Staff were also helpful in pointing me in the direction of a nice pub down the road to eat dinner where hostel guests get 20% off. I would recommend it!

This was a very pleasant stay. The location is great if you don't mind walking around the city. There are hostels closer to the center, but they seemed to be more expensive, and Edinburgh really isn't too big. The staff was friendly and free lockers are provided. My keycard stopped working halfway through the stay, but staff was very kind and simply printed a new one. The wi-fi was the biggest problem, as it was spotty and often did not work.

Very good place for this value of money. Clean, warm and organized. I found it just a bit noisy in the morning because of the busy street.

Location is great, right opposite Haymarket station however the common area is tiny, especially for the number of rooms in the hostel. There were about ten people trying to have breakfast when we got down, the white bread was mouldy and not enough spoons for everyone to eat at once. The kitchen area is too small for more than one person to use so not ideal if you are looking to cook your own food. All bathrooms are mixed and there was no soap or toilet paper and mould in the shower units.

Nice friendly staff. Bit of a walk into town, but there are plenty of pubs right next door so you might not need to bother! Our key cards didn't work, but there happened to be staff available even at midnight so we didn't get locked out in the cold. Kitchen is tiny but well equipped. Just have to stagger your cooking times to not clash with other guests.

The Hostel is very good value for money. Decent accommodation at the lowest prices you will find anywhere. It's well heated, has tv, wi-fi, decent showers and friendly staff. However, security is a bit of a minus because I found people who weren't guests accessing the hostel and although these people were occasional guests, they were continuing to use the facilities even when they weren't staying there and that raises question marks over security. Also, lockers are behind the reception desk.

The location is perfect if you're travelling to or from Haymarket. If you want to go to the city center, you have to use public transport. The hostel itself had only a small common room and it closed quite early (11). As a result many people were sitting in the halls. I had to walk past them to use the bathroom, which was quite annoying. Also the bedroom was very small. There was quite a big road outside my room and the doors made a lot of noise when opening, so I didn't sleep from all the noise

The hostel is a good place to stay, but the bathroom is too cold and not very clean. The bathroom doesn't have a good sink and space.

I love the stay there because all the staff are really helpful, the atmosphere is friendly and I felt safe, beds are new and the rooms are warm This time I recommended more than ten of my friends stay there. I am sure I will recommend it to more and I am sure I will stay there again next time I am in Edinburgh

There was a cafe serving anything from light bites to full meals around the corner, Laundry room, free Wi-Fi internet access and security is good with your own key card . Even though I only stayed for one night, I loved the stay very much and will be returning.

The only bad point is that they close the kitchen at 23h, so it's not possible to eat something when u come from the night.
