The hostel is very well placed, it's walking distance to all the major city attractions. The room itself is no big deal, but since our trip wasnt meant for staying locked, it worked just fine. There are many pubs and restaurants close to the hostel, so having a couple drinks and not finding your way home really isnt a problem.... More

I stayed in this hostel during the Fringe Festival at the end of August. Orginally it was hard to find if you're walking from Waverly Station area. I arrived in Edinburgh around 10 and you can't get into the rooms until 3 pm. There is a spot to leave your luggage if you pay a few pounds. Was given a... More

You get what you pay for. It was during the heatwave of 2013 in Great Britain that I booked a room at this hostel. I got a single room at the top floor! I don't want to whine about this but after a day of walking in the scorching heat with a 20kg backpack and no elevator... I can only... More

Been there three nights during the Edimburgh festival: while I prefer b&b and hotels, there were basically no other choice. Location is just perfect, one block from Royal Mile. Rooms, while very basic (we had two single rooms) are quite big (for an hostel standard) and average clean. In some reviews and pictures this could look like a shared apartment:... More

Stayed for three nights with my partner during the fringe festival. Good central location during the festival is definately the best thing about staying here. The staff were pretty friendly too. I'm not sure what the price is here when the festival isn't on but I would hope it's not more than 20 pounds. Wifi didn't work in the room... More

Begrudgingly paid a ridiculous price for a twin room for 1 night to go to the Fringe festival. In terms of location it is brilliant for central Edinburgh and the hostel wasn't bad as such, just a ridiculous price. It is nothing more than an average, small room at 4* hotel prices due to the festival (hikes up prices big... More

This is in a great location and that is the only good thing to say about it. The mattress was hard, lumpy and uncomfortable, the towels are rationed (only one), no mirror in the room which made hair styling challenging. The toilet and shower got a cursory clean but I doubt the floor has been cleaned this year. We stayed... More
