My favorite! Small, comfortable and friendly. Perfect for those of us who don't plan to cook much. Lockers in rooms are great.

Very nice hostel in great location in High Street, short walk to shopping, museums and the riverfront! Only caveat is, showers outside rooms 1-8 are out of order just as they were when I stayed here a year ago; will they ever be repaired? Other than that, thank you for an enjoyable stay!

This hostel is small and cosy and a real gem- my favorite place to stay in Edinburgh. Very small kitchen may be inadequate if you want to cook a lot, but I don't so it's great. Location can 't be beat.

My favorite place to stay in Edinburgh. Friendly, cosy, and can't beat the location. I only rated 4/5 for facilities because if you want to cook (I don't ) you may want a place with a bigger kitchen, and it's a small hostel, without TV lounge or games room or whatever. But who needs that when you're on the Royal Mile? I plan to be back, thanks!

Love this hostel, great location and friendly staff. I gave 4/5 for facilities because shower on my floor was broken (had to cross thru kitchen area to get to a working one, but no big deal) and out of tea on a chilly wet night, which was disappointing. Everything else excellent, highly recommended.

Very friendly and pleasant hostel near canal and Neptune's Staircase. Wifi is not included (you can pay extra for 18 hours) which I found a problem, since it is not near the town and bus info, directions, maps, etcetera are online. Beautiful area to visit.

Friendly place to stay in Oban, with great helpful employees and fun decor (love the animal prints and polka dots)! Fun atmosphere, and helpful advice about all the day trips you can make to the islands near Oban. I enjoyed my stay very much.

Great place to stay in Dundee. Location right on the High Street, but easy walking distance to the river, train station and bus station. I plan to be back!

Very nice place, quiet at night, very friendly ahd helpful staff, and I met friendly and interesting people. The charging people for using the kitchen or not depending on which room they were in was a bit odd, but wasn't an issue for me. I did wish there was an option for tea and coffee even if you didn't need to use the kitchen; the website isn't clear that free tea and coffee is NOT for everyone.

Great locartion, nice staff. Showers are good with lots of hot water. No lockers in rooms, and the beds are squeaky. Plus they charge you for tea or coffee. I think the thing that bothered me most was no hand soap in the toilets.

Staff very friendly and helpful, free tea, coffee, and hot chocolate are nice as well as the lockers in the rooms and plenty of hot water for showers. My only complaint is that it always took about 3 tries to flush.

Great location and friendly staff. I really liked that you get a key to your own locker. Surprisingly quiet even though in the middle of Fringe festival! Would love to stay again, thanks!
