    Fantastic value for money on a budget and great location to access city close to holyrood palace and Arthur’s seat. Mattresses are very thin but you get what you pay for. The area is quite hilly so not best situated for those who have mobility problems. Staff very friendly and helpful. Had a group of very noisy excitable lads above for few days but staff responded immediately to this when informed. All in all a great stay, thank you destiny student

    The hostel was perfect in terms of location as it’s only a short walk up to town, the rooms are a good size and the staff were all friendly. Our only complaint is that the rooms are unbearably hot, we had to leave to go for a walk at around 4am one night as it was the only way to cool down. They do have fans to hire but had ran out when we asked for one. If the rooms weren’t so hot I would have given this hostel a 10/10 so would still recommend... just take your own fan!

    Place was nice, clean, and quiet, had place to ourselves which was great, pillows could be better as I found them to thin, but apart from that the place was great, would definitely stay here again and would recommend to anyone who wants to stay in Edinburgh for a few nights

    Nice new clean accommodation. Well equipped kitchen. Small double bed was a little uncomfortable as you could feel the springs. Everything else was good. Good location.

    The bathroom and the window was full of hair of the last guest. In the shower their still the Chinese toothpaste and a soup opened from the last guest. It was really disgusting. The bed was so thin that you could feel the springs in you back.

    Absolutely TERRIBLE place, do not stay here. Has an awful institutional feeling, smells like a hospital and feels depressing and eerie. Our shower was disgusting and clogged up every time we used it. This is just an example of a big business (uni halls) trying to profit even further during the uni break. No towels were provided or even hand soap! For £50 a night (the rate we were OVER charged on entry) they could have provided basic shampoo and body wash. Spend your money somewhere else!
