    We stayed in the Superior Double bed private room. It was amazing quality for money! The room was lovely and clean and had all amenities necessary like a hairdryer, towels, coffee and sugar etc. The bathroom was lovely and big as well as the private small balcony which was a lovely addition. The location is superb, not more than 15 minutes walk from the Castle and less than 5 mins from a range of pubs, bars and restaurants. Staff were easy to reach and were super friendly and attentive. 5/5

    Extremely clean, perfect location, common room down stairs had great sized kitchen and living space to socialise in the evenings. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. I would stay again next time I visit Edinburgh. I was travelling solo and it felt like a safe area to stay in :)

    Great location and those residing there are friendly and helpful. Near Princes St as well as all avenues of transportation going any way you desire. Would definitely return, even though there is no staff on duty, all help each other.

    This hostel was a 10 in 2018. It was fabulous with the little touches like free breakfast and chocolates on your pillow and an onsite check-in person.. But it’s changed. It’s mostly used for long stay but they still offer beds to short term travelers which makes for a weird dynamic where the short term travelers feel like invaders. The hostel feels forgotten about. Boiler broke and we didn’t have hot water and they knew about it but didn’t communicate about it or options for another 10 hours.

    The loft is the "your apartment" style living, as an alternative to their other Code, off the Royal Mile (which is staffed and more like a boutique-y "hotel") Tbh, Code is great as you get codes for the doors and for your own locker, a pod like bed with a curtain at the end and the facilities are modern and well looked after. One drawback I felt was the location seemed to be next to every bottle bin in Edinburgh, both mornings the bins were collected and it seemed to go on for hours.

    No staff on location and not available on the phone, this was not ideal for me. I had to send an email, and they did not respond to my question but panicked that I storing my bag in the wrong place. It's a modern self-service hostel, if you like those it will be perfect, it's very clean and well located but there is no real interaction within the hostel. Even as an introverted I actually like the hostel culture of meeting people and sharing space, I missed that culture in the hostel.

    If you are looking for a smaller hostel with a more quiet atmosphere then this is the place for you. Be mindful though, that there is no staff on the premises, they can only be reached by phone.
