Clean, very new and modern facilities. Had everything I needed. Comfy bed in a not-too-cramped female dorm with new clean carpet, place to charge my mobile, big window with a view +lots of light (but blinds too). Toilet and roomy separate shower to share between max 8. Clean and modern kitchen + dining. Luggage storage WiFi and card operated lock system. It was a Thursday so joined in free trivia in the pub. Very quiet and comfortable stay. Only downside- no lift , no inside bike storage.

I had a pleasant stay at Light House. The staff were very welcoming and helpful and things were explained well. The large dorm was quiet and had lockers, shutters for the window and dimmable lights. The front movie/ leisure room I'd spacious, light-filled and clean. I never had to wait for a bathroom. Kitchen was clean. Short walk to Royal Mile.

I had a poor time and didn't sleep but this was mostly because of a fellow dorm resident. I think the staff could have perhaps dealt with him a little better. They were reluctant to ask him to leave/reprimand him, or offer the other people in the dorm any kind of recompense (he brought back a girl and began sleeping with her - both were drunk, and later urinated on the floor of the dorm). The hostel might consider providing male/female only dorms? The price was expensive for what was offered.

La Controra was very new, clean and great to stay in. The kitchen was a little small, and there were some mosquitos that tortured me at night, but these are the only thing I could find fault with. The fact that there was a kitchen was a good start! It was in a good locations, the staff were really nice and there were lockers, and a good shared space to relax. Free wifi a big bonus unlike other places I stayed in where I had to pay for it

The location is fantastic, and for this alone it was worth staying, but the rooms would have been greatly improved by a few simple things like hooks on the walls and door for jackets etc. A little TLC and more cleaning, especially in the kitchen wouldn't have gone astray. THe showers are fine but there is only one toilet on each level to serve three or more dorms. This could definitely do with some attention. It was great to be able to get Wifi even in the upper storeys of the building. T

The kitchen was excellent, organised well and kept clean. The beds were comfortable and also clean. My stay was very good though I couldn't get even a smile from the staff at the desk and welcoming staff would have improved my first impressions much! As always, it suprises me how expensive it is to have to 'rent' linen in Swedish hostels, but this is something that happens across the board. The facilities were definitely a cut above, especially the kitchen and bathrooms. I stayed in an 8 bed fe
