    I stayed there during the Fribge festival. The location was pretty much next to the Fringe mile and in the city centre. When booking in advance, the price per single room is very good and the facilities are also clean ant tidy (there were 2 bathrooms and a kitchen per 6 rooms and people, so there's was enough privacy as well). Staff is also very friendly!

    Anywhere you go the people are the most important. The staff was amazing. Incredibly helpful, informative and friendly. The metro location is temporary for the summers only, but the location is perfect. In the middle of old town and If you go during the august festival, it's right in the middle of everything. This is no frills city hosteling at its best.

    Ideal basic accommodation in a location close to Royal mile. Friendly welcome but still you get your privacy (except the noise travels well through the flats).

    This is an amazing value place to stay during the Fringe. Most of the shows I wanted to see ended up being right on my doorstep - incredible! I slept really well each night courtesy of the free earplugs provided and it was so lovely having my own lockable room. The only issue was the hot water which was non-existent on two occasions when I tried to shower, but I did have a lovely toasty shower on my third day. I would definitely stay here again.

    Please make sure all admin staff speak fluent english ! Other than that, we had a pleasant stay - the set up of private rooms with a shared bathroom/living area is ideal for groups 😊

    Having stayed at this venue on another occasion I feel that this time my stay was not as comfortable. My room was situated virtually above a bar/put, and they were playing loud music way into the early hours. Four nights of this became challenging. I booked for two people, two rooms. My friend checked out after one night, due to the noise. He booked his flight and cut his stay due to the unpleasantness. The toiler also needed some general maintenance.

    The door needs to be sprayed with WD40 to stop the squeaking. Quiter doors are required.

    Standard university accommodation, not brilliantly maintained - wallpaper peeling, little bit dirty in places, usual things. After arriving I went to get my keys, the staff there were pretty rude and ignorant, shocked to look at her name badge to see she was the Duty Manager for the evening. I had to move rooms after the first night so was a little bit of an inconvenience. The pillows were shocking. Location is noisy (it overlooks Cowgate) but I knew about it so not complaining.
