Hostelworld says

Budget Backpackers is in the lively Grassmarket area, surrounded by bars and cafés and within walking distance to sites around central Edinburgh. The hostel features quiet, clean and comfortable rooms and highly praised pub crawls and walking tours. Guests have told us there's 'lots of common areas to meet people if you're travelling on your own' and that they 'recommend it for people who are looking to party and meet people'. We've noticed that several of their guests have returned to stay there again and again.

    Everything about the Budget Backpackers Kick-Ass Hostel was ideal. The rooms were kept clean, the lockers were handy, the food offered was delicious, the excursions arranged or suggested were fantastic.

    I loved it here! The staff as friendly and there were a lot of activities to do each night with the hostel. I did a pub crawl my first night and trivia the next. The bar and restaurant are very reasonably priced and have great meals. I definitely will recommend budget backpackers to my friends!

    Awesome hostel! You could not get a better location and the atmosphere of the hostel is really fun. Rooms and common areas were super clean, my one complaint is about the bathrooms because showers were a bit small. I would definitely stay here again!

    I thought there’d be something wrong with this hostel because it was so cheap, but no, it’s actually really good. Location is good, beds comfy and rooms/bathrooms clean. Good lockers, wifi and sockets by the bed. Towels are £2. Luggage storage £1.

    The bed was comfy and the bar was awesome! I found someone else’s hair on my pillow (looks like it had gotten stuck and tangled possibly while in the dryer) and the water while showering wasn’t always very hot/warm, but it was in a great spot and it offered a good atmosphere! I met some really cool people and would def stay again!

    I didn’t like the place. Is well located but the kitchen was very dirty and the common bathrooms uncomfortable. It was very noisy as well.
