    As a solo traveller, I loved this hostel! Perfect area, very clean rooms, super comfy beds. Joined the pub crawl at the last minute and so happy I did. Great way to meet other travellers.

    One of the best hostels I've stayed in so far. The cafe downstairs is fantastic and the beds were comfy. Good location on the grassmarket and good value. Bathrooms we're a little grungy but mostly clean.

    Great hostel in a fantastic location. The on-site bar/cafe is a massive plus as it's a great place to meet fellow travellers over a cheap drink etc. I had a superior (pod) dorm of 8 - the pods are GREAT and give a sense of privacy. My only issue was with the cleanliness (mostly the smell) - the 3rd floor toilets had a very strong and persistent smell of urine, despite the windows being left open and being cleaned daily. The kitchen area also had a strong and unpleasant smell.

    Terrible service. People at the desk and bar habitually ignore paying customers. Every interaction made me feel as though I was intruding on a conversation or inconveniencing someone. They also begin a grandiose cleaning rituals in the early morning with little to no regard for the fact that most guests are (obviously!) still sleeping. I'm not talking about making noise while cleaning, either. It's just employees shouting up and down the halls at 6:00am. Book elsewhere.
