    I had a great three night stay in a private dorm in Argyle Backpackers. It has a very laidback vibe and what you see is what you get, but it had everything I needed for a little solo Edinburgh trip. Alice responded to my emails promptly and helpfully :) it's also in a great location, right by the meadows and on the same road as a lovely coffee shop. Have recommend to friends and would stay again!

    My lasting impression was the overpowering smell of gas as soon as you enter the main door.

    Really not happy with our stay here. When you enter the door there is a very strong smell of gas, I was old this is not gas but rather phosphorous because it is an old building and readings are taken regularly however this wouldn’t show in a reading anyway. I know the smell of gas and there’s no mistaking this. Impossible to sit in the common living room because of this smell and a gas bottle in there next to the sofa, very dirty and clearly not tidied or cleaned regularly
