One of the best hostels that I have stayed in. The staff we're fantastic and generous. They even organised a night/fright tour of the local area for our party especially. The rooms were clean and pleasant.

We spent only one night there, but would definitely return. The room was clean and tidy, the location encourages to explore the city and the building is an attraction itself. Plus nice friendly atmosphere.

The location is perfect - 5 minute walk to the castle and town, and half an hour to the Wallace monument. We had a private double room which was very spacious and warm. The toilet and shower are basic, but functional with plenty of hot water and room to dry wet clothes. The kitchen was well equipped although (as usual)... More

This is a review of one of their ensuite 'private' rooms that they offer rather than the dorm beds. You don't have to be a member of the SYHA but if you aren't there is a per person supplement to be paid. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was basic (no TV or in-room tea/coffee) but clean and... More

It's very nice inside. A good sized kitchen. The bathroom in our bedroom was really nice, good strong stream of hot water which cannot be undervalued when staying at hostels. It was a bit cold but the comforter kept us warm. The location is just 5 mins down from the castle and right next the city center. It's about 10... More

We only stayed for one night. The room was good but it was very noisy. Our room was at the front of the building so people stood under our window late at night talking loud. It was kind of hard getting to sleep. But the building is gorgeous, perfect location and nice breakfast. A little pricey in comparison to the... More

There were a lot of positives here, the location, the staff, the kitchen facilities and the power of the shower. However, I didn't like the fact that there were hairs in our shower drain and the carpets looked filthy with stains so could really do with a good steam clean. I didn't find this place too reasonably priced for a... More

We were in town for a wedding so this was literally just a place to sleep for us and we didn't try the food or anything, but based on just the room itself and the service I was extremely disappointed. It is 5 minutes walk from the town centre up a hill, and from the outside it looks like quite... More
