    I think I give 10/10 reviews easily but this place was good. Two locked doors at the front for security, reception is around from 8a-8p and was helpful, WiFi is free and decently strong (it cut out once in the middle of the night and stayed off, but was working again at 8a so I assume they just had to power cycle something), clean rooms in my experience, made my bed while I was gone and didn’t touch or move anything

    Loved this place. We had an en suite, and it had a very similar vibe to a hotel. It’s not walkable to the tourist attractions and the city centre, so prepare for cab fees to and from the hostel.

    Great value - basic but I was comfortable. It was very warm, so I was lovely and cosy.

    The room certainly served it's purpose. It was however stiflingly hot, but I just opened the window.

    Nice little budget hotel about 30-40 mins walk from central Edinburgh. There’s some cool spots in the area and plenty of street parking.

    Don't expect anything fancy and nothing really sets this place apart, but it's clean and overall a pretty decent value for money. Multiple buses nearby to take you straight to the city centre within 20 minutes.

    It was just okay. The WiFi was broken and it was very loud because the sound was very poorly insulated between the room and the hallway. But it was pretty cheap, sooooo...

    This hotel was sub standard. I was in a room in a basement 2-3 doors away from the main hotel and with a shared bathroom. The room had a cobweb hanging from the ceiling and felt damp. The bathroom was dirty and I wouldn't take a shower. The only god thing about the hotel was the location, close to Easter Road (as I was going to the Hibernian vs Newcastle match). I would not recommend this hotel at all. Luckily, we were just there to sleep and left as soon as we could the next day.
