The room was really nice, with space, comfortable beds and a good structure. However, cleanness was not so good, because the only thing that the staff changed were sheets and nothing more. The trash was always full of stuff and that's not nice and even healthy.

The place is central to the centre. The customer service is good. The location is the best to go to the bus station.

Convenient location, close to train station and town centre. Reception staff were nice and helpful but kitchen staff were rude and unfriendly. Our room was clean for the most part- there was a lot of gum stuck under the top bunk that hadn’t been cleaned and also under another bunk in the room. The sink outside the bathroom was blocked and didn’t drain either. But for the most part everything was ok.

Not really a youth hostel. Heaps of families young children and older people. Therefore didn't get to meet anyone my own age.

1) I paid £43/night while others paid £26-32 for the she date booking later than me. In the middle of the booking, some of them were asked to shift the dorms. 2) Locks for room lockers were for sale only and no luggage room. Only paid lockets for bags storage. 3) Location is a minimum 20 minutes walk from all the action which is far for Edinburgh standards. 4) Ironically, its called youth hostel but hostel was flooded with old people and more than 60-70% people staying in hostel were 65+ years.

Everything was great. This hostel is conveniently located, easy to get in and out of and there is a cafe on-site that was good as well. A guest lounge and kitchen to make your own food and relax. The only issue was with the WIFI which, could have been due to the amount of people using it but, should be stronger. Many travelers need wifi to communicate and we had to leave the hostel to find an adequate connection.
