    This was an excellent place to stay, I would highly recommend it and will stay here again on my next trip to Edinburgh. The wee restaurant at the hostel down the street is extremely good and very handy to Haddington. The food was excellent, as were the staff, plus there was a great atmosphere about the place. The staff at Haddington were also excellent...friendly and helpful.

    It would have been great if the staff were more informed about the buses and trams. My only serious issue was the quality of the mattress in the room, otherwise I recommend the hostel most highly and will be staying again without a doubt.

    This is not a hostel but rather University Halls of residence been used for accommodation during the summer holidays so don't be expecting the usual hostel facilities. Just visited Edinburgh during the festival and this provided very reasonably priced accommodation when you consider hotel costs during the festival. Room was very clean and secure, the bed was comfortable and a good size, plenty of room for bags storage etc. Location is very good, just a short walk to Princes St (10 mins).

    Great location, and it was clean, although fairly basic. The staff were super friendly, and on my last day, gave me a great recommendation for brunch, which I'd never have found without the tip and it was gorgeous.
