    Clean safe rooms, comfortable beds (the curtains are a great touch), nice lounge/café/bar area. Friendly, helpful staff. Real value for money. Only downside at all was that dorm 107 shares a wall with the outside patio of the café area and 60 (or was it 560?) screaming teenagers on a stay were very loud. However, it is a youth hostel, and they were gone by 8 pm.

    This was my first Hostel stay. I was pleasantly surprised by everything and everyone. The room was spacious, there was a desk and chair. The bed was made. Breakfast was filling. The staff was helpful with answering my questions. Thank you!

    The location is perfect to visit the city and around (and there are plenty of gorgeous places). Nice youth hostel, with friendly staff at your disposal. If you want somewhere which is clean, welcoming and cheap (balance quality-price), that is the place to be !

    Solid spot for our stay in Edinburgh. Great location and plenty of space. It took about a half hour to check in, presumably because the groups in front of us hadn't boomed ahead and there was some miscommunication, so I assume that's not normal. There wasn't any shelving in the shower or toilet, so there wasn't anywhere to put your stuff without it getting wet. They store luggage ahead of time which was very helpful. Not as clean as the safestay in York, but was fine.
