    Very convenient location. The atmosphere was good but it was also quiet when I wanted to sleep. Free coffee, cereal and toast in the morning. Great hostel.

    Great beds, long enough for me, and surprisingly large locker. I was very greatful that I was allowed a bottom bunk, as my suitcase was heavy and much easier for me to use the bottom locker. Many thanks. Staff also printed off my plane ticket the night before I was leaving. Very grateful again.

    LOVE the curtain on the bunk. Gave a little privacy in a very un-private room of strangers. Felt safe for myself and my belongings my entire stay.

    Well-run hostel in a central location. Easy walk from the bus stop/train station. I was in a 4-bed mixed dorm for the night and it was really nice. Ensuite bathroom, privacy curtains and outlets at each bed, and spacious lockers for luggage. Would recommend the 4-person room again for sure.

    Pros: Comfortable 6 bed mixed dorm, spacious and clean Great price and location Cons: Was on the 1st floor that was basically on the street level because of how slopey Edinburgh is - loud trucks and rowdy crowds passing throughout the nights. A lot of unwashed kitchenware left in the sink throughout the day unfortunately. No bedside chargers.

    Nice place! Liked that the beds had curtains. Lucky for me I had an outlet near by. But other beds had none. Located just off the Royal mile and not a long walk from the train station. Only spent a few days here but would have loved to stay longer.

    It was a good place. Atmosphere was good but this was where All the school kids decided to vacation and that was annoying. But not their fault. We had a shower and bathroom in our room.

    Overall a reasonable stay. Great location. Cool vibe in the bar. The en-suite dorm had the toilet in the shower making it very wet and dirty. Not much ventilation in the room. Noisy from our room being on level one close to the bar. I booked a 8 bed dorm but arrived and they had put me in a 10 bed dorm without informing me and with a room change during my stay which I wasn’t happy about.
