The hostel is well looked after, the staff were all friendly and incredible helpful... the kind kiwi chap on reception even found pulled a (pink and purple) umbrella out of nowhere when we were in need! The pub crawl was amazing - so much fun we went on it twice in a row! All guides were amazing but a special... More

I stayed only one night, but I had pleasant experience. I arrived really early and they have paid lockers where you can leave your bags while explore the city. Because these lockers are unsupervised (but secure) you can leave your stuff there even after you have left, for some backpackers this could be really useful. A big locker is around... More

Just 2 mins from waverly station hence communizing via airport or trains station is so easy. The Edinburgh castle is about 10mins walk... Nice clean hostel with lovely staff. Breakfast was simple but nice - only thing they charge a nominal amount in case you leave your luggage at the locker ;)

I've stayed in my fair share of hostels, and this one is decent. The location is about as convenient as it gets if you are arriving into Edinburgh via train. The wifi is pretty good, and we felt that the rooms were secure and fairly clean. They provide you with towels and storage space under your bed which can be... More

Lovely place, great location, the hostel rooms were well kept and food at the bar down stairs is quite good! Best part is the friendly staff and great recommendations that they give..kudos. They did help me plan out most of my trip in Scotland. Also, they do have several discounts and free walking tours from the hostel. One drawback is... More

I went here as my normal first choice was full so I decided to try this place. Lucked out as the concert I went up to see was just around the corner! so no buses/taxis anything! just Shanks Pony! the place is within very easy reach of all main transport hubs and was not as noisy as I expected....would recommend..

The place seemed ok from the front, but as soon as you walked in it was cramped. The 1st room we had booked was small and smelly. The bed did not look like a double bed, the bathroom was tiny, there was only one heater that was broken!!! There was no tv either. The 2nd room they put us in... More

To me this place is the perfect hostel for travellers, especially those studying abroad. Two solid bars downstairs with great food and sports on multiple screens all night long. Hot showers and nice enough rooms! Would stay again! Edinburgh is amazing.

Right in the heart of the city and a few minutes away from the train station this hostel was perfect for my one night stay enroute to visit my sister in Aberdeen. It's a simple hostel, standard bunk beds in my four bed dorm. It was comfortable enough and the few of the city from my window was great too... More

Stayed here for a total of five nights in a ten bed female dorm. The room I was placed in seemed to be one of the older rooms, but was still comfortable and spacious. There is a ensuite bathroom in the room that was a little old and run down but still clean. Beds were comfortable and towels provided for... More
