Great location, value for money. Probably the best hostel I've stayed in..

The floors were unbearably creaky and loud. The bathroom wasn't cleaned. The beds were not made either. The location is great for wandering around the city though.


This is a big hostel so lacking in some charm that smaller hostels may have but as far as huge hostels go this is a good one. It was very clean and the bar and restaurant area are really nice. It is also located right in the middle of the old town, one block form the main sights of the city.


Great place and great value for money. Close to bars, cafes, clubs and attractions. Each dorm has its own toilet and shower and they offer a pub crawl every night.


Nice place to stay in the old town of Edinburgh.
