The staff were welcoming and friendly and helpful. The room I was staying in was clean and cosy. Overall I have thoroughly enjoyed my stay here and best of all they do exceptionally nice food with high quality ingredients at a very reasonable price. From staying here I got a slight discount. There is everything here you could wish for... More

Despite staying in a 8 bed dorm which I was initially pretty apprehensive about, the room was clean, nice and comfortable! And there's even wi-fi in the room! Though my bed was kinda creaky and I was afraid I would disturb the people sleeping in the room. The toilet and shower were in 2 separate cubicles and basin was outside... More

I stayed in the hostel section for four nights and had an okay experience. The room was tiny for eight people and the bathroom light didn't turn off which annoyed some of us trying to get to sleep. The discount at the bar was good though. Staff was friendly and was pretty clean. The biggest con would be the location.... More

Thumbs up from us. Super stair case (unless you are in the top room, after a night out!). Staff were great (20% off in the bar,,happy). Photos on late rooms do... More

This place is warm (the heating is fantastic in chilly Scotland) and the staff particularly Alyce, Lauren and Juan were so friendly and welcoming and made our stay awesome. I stayed in a twin ensuite room, just like a hotel and very clean and modern. It was so warm and very quiet. There are hostel like facilities downstairs including a... More

Each day. the West End has sth new to offer...Live Band, Quiz night etc. It was a lovely stay. The centre is almost possible to walk to. There was not a lot of choice for breakfast though. In any case, it was more than worth its money.

Fanstatic staff, clean rooms and great facilities. Staff are friendly and the food is excellent. What a hostel! We were there for a Stag and it was perfect and about a 20min walk from the Royal mile. If you're on a budget, this is the place to stay. I will definitely stay again! The only thing I would say is... More

I stayed here for a weekend recently for my stag weekend, there was 9 of us and we stayed in a 12 bed dorm room. The room was very clean, spacious and tidy, comfortable bunk beds and the room was always warm. With high vaulted ceilings, ornate cornicing and a great chandelier, we were all very pleased. The hotel is... More
