The hostel was great, in a great location, I would definitely stay again. The one major draw back was a REALLY squeaky bed that kept me awake a lot during the night.

The location was perfect and had lots of options for restaurants and shops. The staff were absolutely awesome and helpful with suggestions for places to go around the city. Very nice facilities and all around a great hostel.

Absolutely fantastic place to stay. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, especially Erin! Lovely clean rooms, great showers in the shared bathrooms, everything was lovely and clean. A great, laid back place to stay in the heart of Edinburgh. I would highly recommend this hostel!

the dormitory room was really small, two people have difficulties at passing in the space between the beds at the same time, let alone opening your own luggage in that space.

Overall a good experience, but the shared facilities could have been clean more often. Stayed in the private 3-bed dorm and it was really good value for the money paid!

The Hostel location was absolutely fantastic! A couple of pieces of feedback: 1. It would be nice if the reception staff got up to talk to you instead of talking to you from the desk around the corner. 2. The showers have screws in them to control the temperature of the water which means the water was BOILING at some points and you couldn't change the temperature. 3. Not having power sockets in the rooms is ridiculous - especially given how much back packers rely on phones to be charged.

Because it was New Years, the hostel was way over priced. But then again so was everything else. The bathrooms were disgusting and weren't cleaned enough!! Good atmosphere and was great to be able to drink alcohol in the lounge. I would stay there again.

Ok place, not far from the centre, but not in the middle of things either, so quite peaceful. Clean and functional. One shower didn't really give warm water, but the next one did. Beware that the reception closes at 11 pm! Our train was late and we couldn't make it, but they appeared after we ringed the doorbell.

It's a nice hostel but it just lacks atmosphere. If you want to be alone and don't want to be bothered by social chatting than its ideal. The price is good and you get what you pay for.
