    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.

    Good place and close to the happening area. Though the kitchen is smaller. Also cleanliness needs to be increased

    Nice hostel, I wish it was cleaner, and the staff aren’t very interactive. But still a nice atmosphere with the guest, it attracts a good crowd

    Argyle Backpackers is a great place to stay if you're looking to experience Edinburgh, a hop skip and a jump away from the busy and bustling downtown core. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms could use a bit of an update when it comes to the shower heads, the staff could be a tad more energetic upon arrival but were nice to check us in early, and the common room didn't elict the most social vibes...but other than that it was a homey hostel adjacent a quiet and beautiful park.

    This hostel is actually a few different buildings on the same street. Our building was sometimes unlocked and our room was unlocked most of the time because there were no staff monitoring the building. The staff did their jobs but were not especially friendly or helpful. Beds did not have individual charging stations. The location is good if you don’t mind a small walk to the centre of town. The hostel was clean, although we did have to remind staff to empty bins or refill toilet paper.
