    I really enjoyed this hostel, it was unfortunate I got stuck with really rude people in my room. Very comfy, however I’m 175 cm tall and my toes were hanging off the bed.

    What’s not to love about this place. The location is smack dab in the center of it all!! The staff is available 24/7 and go out of their way to help in every way possible ( shout out Meg & Sarah), their advice for all my destinations throughout Scotland were invaluable. Everything is kept clean @ all times, and the overall atmosphere couldn’t be better. I met some amazing people during my stay & look forward to my next trip back.

    This hostel was great! I loved the location, it was just a few steps to the Royal Mile, and a few minutes to the railway station. The hostel was very clean, and the pods extremely comfortable. The staff was nice and helpful too.

    Great place to stay. The only downside I could mention is that the room was kinda smelly because someones shoes just STANK. If they implemented leaving shoes outside the room it would be a good idea. Besides that is really cool.

    This is a seriously civilised hostel. The pods meant that I slept incredibly well - 10hrs sleep the first night and 9hrs second and third nights! You really feel like you have your own private space, and you can have your light on and not disturb anyone else. The room itself was also really nice - super clean with good locker and a big countertop with huge mirror above it. Brand new bathrooms and kitchen, a joy to use. I used their iron and they have good hairdryers in the female bathrooms.

    Hostel is in an astonishing location, fantastic kitchen but not much area to relax in. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Hostel uses keypad codes everywhere, not keys or Door passes. Breakfast appeared to be great value for money but i preferred to go to local cafes. The pod rooms are excellent, similar to pod hostels in Japan, they are very private and get very toasty at night. Lockers in room have digital pin locks. Hostel was quite sedate. One of the best hostels ive ever stayed at.

    Loudest hostel I’ve ever stayed in. Ear plugs were not enough to block late night noise of music and yelling from the club next to room G03. Pod bed didn’t help either. Room doors are also very loud. I don’t expect hostels to be completely quiet, but this was excessive. Not worth paying double the price of the cheapest hostel in town. Not much of a common area. Not a very social vibe. Staff were great. Showers were nice. Location was good, but other hostel locations as good.
