Terrific hostel. Rooms are spacey and clean, the bar is well equipped and has a great atmosphere. The location is great - the place is right in the city center next to the Royal Mile so it's great for exploring the city. Though if you are looking for shopping or traveling outside the city using public transport you may want to pick a place closer to Princess Street..


Even though I was only at this hostel for 1 night, I would definitely recommend it to others. The location is great, just off the Royal Mile, with clean rooms and great facilities.

The walls between the rooms are a bit thin. I can still hear people yelling next door. But it could be that they are too noisy. Other things are great!
