    Lovely hostel in a nice area, not to far to walk to the city centre. Friendly staff. The private room I had was lovely and like a hotel from for a fraction of the price. I’ll be staying again :)

    Loved this place! My first time staying in a hostel by myself so was a bit anxious, but settled in fine and met some lovely people. Great facilities and atmosphere and especially lovely location right in the centre, so easy to navigate for first-time visitors to Edinburgh! Highly recommend!

    Great place, very original since it is in a former church. The rooms are nice, even if the walls are thin I had no problems to sleep. However the lockers are a bit small, you can't fit a backpack in it, and there's barely any more space in the room, so me and another guy had to keep the bag on the bed. The kitchen and common room are perfect, well equipped, enough fridges to keep your food. The showers are not the most practical, but they were always clean. Small Tesco nearby.

    Very nice crew, ready to help. The rooms are small (at least the one that I’ve been in) and just a window on the ceiling that you can’t reach (they leave it a bit open), Except that everything was great, there’s transportation in a 5 minutes walk from the hostel, also supermarket 10 minutes from it. The kitchen is great, they have everything. And there’s good vibes and showers. Thanks!

    My main complaints are the cold water in the shower and that they don't have USB sockets in rooms to give you the ability to charge your phone or to offer you a socket adapter for the days you stay there but you have to buy it. Your customers are mostly not natives and you should give them the ability to have access to electricity. Also there was too noisy! I could hear what said the people who stayed in the next room and when some walked through corridors you could heard them too.

    Good location and cheap for a last minute Edinburgh fringe stay. However, It was a bit of a weird and dank place and I wouldn’t stay there again.
