    Great location, very helpful staff and a nice atmosphere! The dorm was very spacious, so big that I sometimes forgot I was in a 10 person dorm room. My bed was really comfortable, and each bed had there own locker (with a key so you don't need a lock), little light and multiple plugs! The facilities were very clean and there were enough toilets and showers. I would definitely recommend this hostel, especially for this price!

    Fabulous

    The security gets a low rating because my locker didn't lock. The security to the building and rooms seemed fine. The atmosphere wasn't great because its a very small building and there is little space to sit round and chat with others. The hostel is in a good central location on royal mile and easy walking distance to the bus from the airport. Be aware it is noisy at night time. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the hostel is clean and tidy.
