    The Baxter was hands down the best hostel I’ve ever stayed in. I spent the weekend doing touristy things in Edinburgh and this hostel gave such a great set up. It was unbelievably close to everything, free delicious breakfast every morning, and a really good place to hang out and do work on my laptop while waiting for the rain to pass. It’s cute as heck and the staff was overwhelmingly friendly. I even happened to visit on a holiday (Burns Night) so they had free cultural dinner and games. 10/10

    This place is so welcoming and so beautiful. It looks great, and from the moment I entered the staff helped me get settled in. The beds are comfortable, and they have nice large lockers. I was most impressed by the breakfast. The staff prepared eggs for the guests. As long as you can wash your own dishes, you will feel right at home. The location is amazing as well. Its right by Calton Hill and just a bit further is Arthur’s seat. Its also close to the bus station. Definitely stay here.

    Amazing place! Excellent people and atmosphere. You are close to both New Town and the Old Town of Edinburgh, so it has an excellent location to explore by yourself.

    My stay at The Baxter was fantastic. Super friendly Staff, delicious free breakfast cooked fresh in the morning for you and the common areas were kept clean at all times of the day. I would definitely recommend this for solo travels esp females. Ive made some awesome friends staying at The Baxter. The location is unbeatable right on the border of New and Old Towns, walk-able distance from plenty touristy and non touristy locations.

    I really enjoyed my time at The Baxter! The rooms are beautiful and the kitchen is stunning and very well-equipped. Location is perfect, just by Waverley Bridge. The only downside is the bathrooms...while very nice, the showers are SO small. I’m not one to complain but they were tiny. But, I still extended my trip and all-in-all had a great stay. Thanks guys!

    No denying the decor of the hostel is beautiful. They do manage to fit a lot of stuff into a very small space, which was difficult when many people were up and moving around in the room or restrooms. The staff was very friendly and made sure there wasn’t anything I needed. Hostel was great for a night’s stay before and after a tour.

    Both the shower in my room and on my floor were broken, so I had to search for a shower on another floor (search- there are no signs providing directions to facilities or rooms). Hip style and great location, but overall unpleasant experience.
