    Very Good

    03 Jan 2019
    Room was good though telly did not work. I didn't bother telling reception as was too busy to watch anything. WiFi was excellent. The second half of two different football matches were streamed simultaneously with no issues. If you're looking for super cleanliness and a working telly there are plenty of hotel chains nearby. Edinburgh Backpackers provides a good kitchen, great games room and a more than adequate common room. Staff were helpful too.
