As a female solo traveler the Baxter felt safe. The location of it is about a 10 minute walk to the Royal Mile and is in a cool spot. The manager there was so kind and helpful. I really liked the size of the lockers. Sometimes hostels barely have any locker storage and I was able to fit my carry-on in it and then some. Keep in mind it is on one floor of a building and it’s a co-Ed shared bathroom, but that wasn’t an issue.

Only criticism would be the showers are a tad small, but other than that probably one of the best hostels we’ve stayed at, amazing staff and amazing vibe :)

The experience was fine. Though did i have an unpleasant experience with one of the staff. I had the day before asked the receptionist if it was okay that i did breaksfast at 7:30 instead of 8.00 because I was going on a daytour. She said it was fine. But when I went to the kitchen the next morning the receptionist got really mad. He didnt even listned to my explanation but just laughted at me and said that he was the one in charge and that i couldnt get to make breakfast. Just really rude.
