    The best hostel I have ever stayed at! Facilities were extremely modern and clean. Location was excellent - in walking distance of all main Edinburgh attractions. Free luggage storage (pre check in and after check out) was also a huge plus. Would highly recommend.

    It's a truly new place, I loved it there. Expect the fact, that I was quite sick, so I wasn't in a lively mood at all. The only thing I missed was my favorite apple juice from the breakfast, but the staff was helpful, and the place is in the heart of town. Library, art galleries, the castle and all things were close to me. It was clean, codes were easy, and its a big place, multiple levels, with an elevator, and disabled toilets for those who need. I liked that, its really a social place.

    I had such a wonderful stay!This is a kind of luxury hostel and its brand-new! I was in a 10dorms for 3nights and the beds are really comfy, the sound is isolated. This only thing I would have change is staying in the court (24beds), its in an old court a justice and the room is huge, its not every where you can see this;) I also tried the beer tasting which is worth having a try. You get to visit the underground of the hostel and we had a great time with the Australian manager for the tasting.

    Really good quality hostel at the best location, in the heart of Old Town. The facilities are new and clean and the pods are fantastic. I haven't had such good sleep in a while. The mattresses are superb, just make sure to have a pair of earplugs if you're a light sleeper (they also provide some in the room). The kitchen is also clean and well equipped if you want to cook there, and the workspace is nice to work in. Overall, a good mix of socialising and privacy, whatever your type is :)

    Great place to stay, right in the heart of the city! The theme of the hostel was pretty cool. Waffle machines for breakfast, beer on tap for later on. I did notice that sound carried throughout the hostel so at times it was a bit loud but I’m sure you can expect that at any hostel. The pods made it feel like you had your own little space which I loved. Bathrooms were very clean and large. Even had a washer and dryer and they supplied the soap for you!
