Great place to stay, I stayed in a 12 bed room, all facilities are clean and tidy. Staff are really helpful and give great advice on tours ect. They have a self catering kitchen and a restaurant and bar attached. Great value for money and a great stay.

The kitchen was dirty and disorganized if you wanted something you usually found it in the drainer. The kitchen/living/dining area is shut from 11pm to 8am no longer to speak of apart from the bar. Comfortable night sleep in a busy dorm with no lockers, great breakfast that you didn't have to order. Great if you want something cheap and you don't need to have your own breakfast before going out. It is near the shops and city center if you get stuck for anything

Aesthetically, a great hostel. Equipped with a filthy kitchen that was in an awful condition for the duration of our stay. Fairly friendly staff, discounts on beers at the bar downstairs, but lacking a lounge or chillout area for travellers, so the atmosphere was somewhat lacking. Also, really not that close to the major attractions and the public transport system in Edinburgh is not great, so a tiny bit too much walking for my liking. Almost no security for valuables. Beautifully cheap though.

Overall, very clean place and very friendly staff! Wish there were bigger lockers to lock up a travel backpack and the hostel is a little far out of Old Town where a lot of the attractions and pub crawls are.

The Hostel is in a nice area, calm and clean. The atmosphere was also good but not in the kitchen or tv room.
