The place was dirty. We found toe nails on the floor in our room and a tick in one of the beds. The bathrooms were okay. The beds were so creaky, everytime someone rolled over you could hear it. I would not stay here again.

Great hostel. Ideal location!! Very close to the train station and right in the heart of Old Town. Loved the feel of the neighborhood and it’s accessibility to many of the hot spots/must sees of Edinburgh.

The hostel was clean and within walking distance to Edinburgh Castle. The cost for a night stay was £25.00, whilst the beds were also, comfortable.
