We had an enjoyable stay here. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm. The staff member that checked us in was excellent. Have a parking deal for 5 euro a day which was useful for us. Free breakfast if you wake us early enough. Only problem was the shower was pretty crappy and leaked water all over our bathroom floor but was only a minor issue. Would definitely recommend this hostel
Great location right near many restaurants and bars. Friendly staff members when I was there. Free breakfast. Would recommend. Only issue is small rooms, but I had just come from London so they didn't seem so bad
Very good hostel would recommend it to anyone travelling to Edinburgh. Nice spacious rooms and lockers. 3 lounge areas downstairs which are good to chill out in. All other facilities nice and clean. There is this annoying orange piece of paper you have to keep on you to get in to the building the key is not enough. But it does get you discounted drinks some places so can't complain too much.
Some positives were the friendly and helpful staff, free breakfast and the generally cleanliness. Some negatives were that it is located next to the train station so if you are on one side of the building you will hear the train come in early in the morning also in summer the rooms get pretty hot. But overall good value for money and was nice to have easy going staff
