Stayed hear on a saturday night for my birthday, 11 of us total stayed in the 12 bed dorm. Room and Bathroom very clean. Had a meal there which was very nice and you 20% discount. Short taxi ride roughly £6 to get to the centre. At under £17.50 per person for one night very good value.

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.

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

The hotel is good, staff was really helpful and friendly. It is located in the West part of Edinburgh, but about 10/15 minutes to the City Centre. Good cost benefit. But next time, I will prefer to stay close to the City Centre. Edinburgh is beautiful!!!!!!!
