    Superb

    Helpful staff, great location, very clean and comfortable rooms.

    Although rooms are ensuite the hostel should have more showers and toilettes in corridors in order to avoid waiting inside the rooms

    Lovely hostel! I stayed for 2 nights and it is quite comfortable and convenient. The hostel is near city centre and there are several restaurants around the hostel.

    Guest rating

    Facilities are ok, but the price goes to high for what it really is

    The staff is pretty impersonal, and beside other hostels this is pretty important

    The hostel is very close to the main city attractions, and everything we needed, including leaving our lugagge after checking out, which was not so expensive, was well achieved. The staff was very nice and helpful too.

    I found the staff very welcoming and friendly and extremely helpful, which created a very friendly atmosphere throughout the hostel. This was my second visit, but the first time on my own. I would definitely recommend the hostel and will definitely be back.

    I have no complaints at all.

    Everything was as expected = good, good value for money - close to the city center

    missing towels

  • 8.8
    Superb

    We got a special deal £27 for twin room. The room was clean and warm. It took us a while to find but that was more our fault than hostel. No towels when first got there but enquired at recetion and got them no problem. If you are staying for a busy weekend and only needing somewhere to sleep I would reccommend here. We will definately return.

    Fabulous

    well they upgrated my room from 10 persons dorm to 4 persons for free, it was very comfortble in the room. the staff were very friendly. I left my phone in the room , they kept it for me until I got back to Edinburgh to collect it , it was so sweet!

    well you need to pay 1 pound per hour to store your luggage, that's quite expensive especially when u need to store the case for the whole day!.
