    Very impressed with The Baxter during my trip to the Fringe. Lovely lovely staff, free luggage storage during the day before and after check-out, powerful, hot showers, smart decor, cooked breakfast included and such a homely feel in the common area. Amazing location, right next to North Bridge, don’t think I would have been happier staying at the Balmoral ;)

    Wow this place is adorable! It was the easiest place to find from the airport. The design of the whole place was put together so nicely and I enjoyed that very much. New appliances and top quality stuff. Not like any hostel I have ever been to before. I would love to stay there again and for a bit longer next time. Very clean place with great staff to help you out. Keep up with the great work.

    The Baxter is great! Feels more like a college dorm than a hostel (and only in the best ways). The staff are friendly and engaging, the atmosphere is amazing, and I felt totally safe the whole time I was there. It's in a great spot right next to Waverley train station and the Edinburgh bus station, so transportation isn't a problem. It's also a short walk from the Royal Mile, and there's no pressure about checking out! Will definitely be coming back here again!

    Beautiful, stylish, small hostel, bang in the centre of Edinburgh. Really lovely staff and one of the best hostel breakfasts I've had. Highly recommend this hostel.

    The staff was absolutely amazing, couldn’t fault them one but. The hostel looked good but it was a bit underwhelming with the showers being so small (no full sized sinks) and damp (LOTS of mould on the ceilings and coming down the walls). The rooms were also rammed with 3 tier bunk beds so there was no space to move. The breakfast option was good though, I rarely see eggs being done for breakfast.

    I was pretty comfortable at this pretty little space and breakfast was good so were the staff. However bathroom sinks were tiny, could barely brush my teeth without having water everywhere. There were only 2 toilets and 4 small showers for the whole hostel. No where to put your things except a towel. Nowhere to put your large piece of luggage but they did have lockable storage for carry on sized. Location was central and building only has stairs. Downside have to pay per night for towel and lock

    I slept in that hostel only for a night because the first night I've discovered that in my bed there were a lot of BEDBUGS. It's a shame. I should have stayed there for other four nights but I didn't! The worse experience in a hostel in my life.
