    Very central location, right by Waverley Station. Spotless showers/toilets, each dorm allocated their own facility for COVID safety. Breakfast pack given instead of buffet breakfast which was appreciated! Luggage storage available if needed.

    I stayed in an 8 bed hostel. The hostel is quite new, so the beds were incredibly comfortable! I did not have any roommates at the time, it must have been off season for Edinburgh. There is a light in bed, outlets in each bed, clean laundry. The only possible downside was that the room A12, was quite close to the bathrooms of the bar next door so you could hear people talking and drying their hands. Just bring a pair of ear plugs and you'll be fine!

    Stayed 3 nights in Aug and had a 12 bed dorm all to myself - the hostel was quite empty, presumably due to COVID. Amazing location, friendly staff, very clean, and Wi-Fi worked great. This hostel does well in terms of COVID-safety - guests in each dorm are asked to only use one shower and toilet, and the showers and toilets are deep cleaned daily. There is also hand sanitiser available throughout the hostel and people respect physical distancing in communal spaces.

    Loved it! We had to switch bedrooms for the 2nd night b/c there was a smell - they were super accommodating and moved us right away. Lots of space in under bed locker. The showers are in individual narrow rooms which is nice and private - would be nice if they added a shower curtain anyway to block the water from the shower getting on your dry stuff, also maybe some hooks to hang your towel. We had a late flight but had to check out, they have coded lockers you can use - so nice!

    Very Good

    The location is great and the staff is friendly and in general, it's fine and everything, but just not more than that. The toilet paper is the worst ever (genuinely), and the bunk beds are so low that you can't sit up in them. I was also really annoyed that we were told that it would be no problem to store our luggage there after check out, but we weren't told that we need to pay for it. The kitchen was also super dirty. But overall, it was okay.

    The security to hostel is good, The location is situated near to the train station as well. The best advantage about this hostel is that it is in close proximity to shops, Witherspoon's and the town centre. Moreover, the airport is a 30 minute tram ride, and the bus ride is slight longer. During my stay, I found the staff not so helpful and most of them are young student adults who don't care about the customers needs. Furthermore, I was verbally abused and sworn at by employee.
