All you need for a simple hostel: clean, friendly, and in an excellent location very close to the Royal Mile. Highly recommended! Lots of friendly backpackers going through this hostel. Breakfast (cereal/toast/fruit) included.

At just a 5 min walk from the Edinburgh city centre station, the place was at a brilliant location. The staff was extremely hospitable, voluntarily suggested that we should go on the walking tour and made us comfortable. The 8 bed dorm room was spacious, with lockers available at a 1 pound deposit. Beds and sheets clean, showers and toilets... More

This hostel is in the perfect location in central Edinburgh. Prices are extremely reasonable and good value for money for what you get. There is a 4 hour window for continental breakfast (which is included in the nightly rate), and they are not regimental about the times if some guests are still eating or go for breakfast a few minutes...

Loved this hostel! It was a bit quiet though as it's not in the busy season, I would've liked to meet more people and hear chatter in the kitchen/common room but can't have everything! Staff were very friendly and helpful, kitchen was clean and functioning with a great yummy breakfast in the morning. I had a 4 person female dorm... More

Very helpfull staff, clean and keeping in good temperature rooms. Free breakfast was enjoyable - you just can make yourself a cup of coffee, tea, take a fanta from fridge, make cereal with milk, waffles etc. Not this OR this, but BOTH :) 10/10 for this price and location.
