    Superb

    Loved this hostel! We stayed in a 6 bed dorm room and it was huge! Lots of space for everyone to comfortably get ready and move around at the same time. Amazing location, in Grassmarket right underneath Edinburgh castle! The staff were great, there were good cheap food options and we also loved the free walking tour! Will definitely stay here again if ever in Edinburgh.
