    Amazing place. Staff are super friendly and they have great events planned for most nights. The place is clean and tidy and I felt very safe and comfortable there. I chose the pod dorms and there was heaps of privacy. Would definitely stay again.

    Location is amazing so close to everything, rooms are clean and spacious, the only downside is in the room I stayed it had poor wifi connectivity. The showers are push button showers that’s the only downside to the hostel. Otherwise great facilities

    I felt very safe here as a young solo female traveller. The beds were cozy, the room was very clean, and the hostel is in an amazing location. I definitely recommend!

    This hostel kicks ass, probably the best one I have stayed so far! Great location (near Royal Mile), very clean and cosy. It seems like it was opened yesterday, perfectly clean, big comfortable dorms with USB plugs for everybody, nice kitchen, great lounge on two levels and a bar for guests. Perfect place for staying in Edinburgh! I'll come back in September. Thank you!

    Perfect location, great rooms (I stayed in the 22 beds room) that surprisingly are more private that common ones. The only problem was that one night one random dude started peeing in the middle of the room, then try to steal someone shoes and finally scape running. But you know, that almost never happens.

    One of the nicest places I've stayed in Edinburgh, colourful, spacious, with good beds and friendly staff. The power kept going out in my room and the hot water often disappeared and there was no urgency to do anything about either of those things, but that's my only complaint. Decent facilities and good security, I would stay here again.

    We stayed 2 nights. Staff was nice. Rooms& bathrooms were clean. Bedding needs to be updated, it’s falling apart. They also need curtains on the beds. Lighting in the rooms are terrible, very dimly lit. Tia gave a great walking tour!
