    The hostel was amazing! Best I’ve ever been too. The staff is kind and helpful and the environment is very welcoming . Moreover the location is just perfect because the hostel is pretty close to the centre.

    The hostel is very cute and cozy, clean and in a nice location. You have to walk 15-20 minutes to get to the center but the walk is very pleasant and through a beautiful park (very safe also at night). There are a couple of cafes around for breakfast and pubs.

    Very convenient for sightseeing in Edinburgh and a comfortable friendly hostel. My room was great with a lovely cosy duvet and excellent TV. Fantastic kitchen facilities - I was able to cook a large spaghetti Bolognese for 8 people in lovely large pans which I wasn’t expecting. And best of all I was upgraded to a double room as the hostel was quiet - a kind gesture an much appreciated. I will definitely return

    Lovely location walking through the meadows to get to central Edinburgh, very friendly staff, didn't use kitchen or social spaces so can't comment on those. My private room was comfortable and very good price compared to hotels. The place was very quiet on a saturday night which was perfect for me. There were plenty of shared bathrooms on every floor, and the place was overall clean and homely with a bit of character. It felt like staying in a house rather than in an impersonal hotel. Thanks

    Perfect for a night in edinburgh. Could do with a little updating here and there but overall it was cosy and I slept well. Only thing was our door didn't close properly but we could still lock it so it was okay.

    Lovely hostel in a great location very close to Central Edinburgh just a 10 minute walk so no need for transport whilst there... Staff on hand but was easy and relaxed to come and go as pleased and great to make your own food. There were plenty of bars and shops close by too. Quiet location so had a good night's sleep 😊.

    A nice place to stay, with The Meadows pretty much on your doorstep if you want to take a nice walk in pleasant surroundings and also only a 10-15 minute walk from the City Centre. There are also a couple of pubs, shops, and takeaways just around the corner and the number 41 bus will take you to/from the City Centre. The area that this hostel in is quiet and I had no problem getting a good nights sleep. The bathrooms and common areas were clean, would recommend staying here.

    While the location was sufficient and the staff nice, any benefits were overlooked with the MICE we saw running around our room at night. There are signs that say not to bring food in your room - but that doesn’t matter as we kept our food in the kitchen. It kept myself and my sister awake with their constant squeaks and footsteps. The fact that there is an obvious rodent problem not being addressed is rather disappointing and disgusting.
