    Hostel was quiet following the festival. Bed comfy, kitchen well equipped and clean. What more could I ask for? Free, out of hours, parking within 200m was a bonus.

    This place is great. It's in a cool house, and the neighborhood is perfect if you're here for the fringe. It's close enough to have a nice walk to shows, while still being far enough way from all the madness. Had great chill zones and a nice backyard. Will definitely be coming back next year.

    Fabulous place to stay! Spacious rooms with great views in a charming Victorian house. Lots of showers and toilets so I never had to queue. Fully equipped kitchen with back garden to eat in when the weather’s nice. Highly recommend!

    The Argyle backpackers was a fantastic place to stay, and really affordable. It's in a great location; just a walk across the meadows, and you're in the heart of Edinburgh.

    A very quiet and lovely sanctuary amongst the chaos of the Fringe festival. Thanks :-) My favourite bit was sitting in the garden with a cup of tea and to eat breakfast. I'll be back :-)

    Tucked down a residential street and about a 15 min walk into the city centre this hostel was a great base for us for the Fringe. The hostel was quiet, the beds were comfy and the kitchen and bathroom was clean. It provided everything you need as a crash pad at the end of a long day!
