The price is cheap but the devil is hidden in details. The staff is rude and unprepared. Bathrooms are dirty and uncomfortable(tiny sinks) . There is no storage space either in the bathroom for bathroom stuff or in the rooms nor lockers for luggages. This is a problem for an hostel with 40 bed spaces and people going in and out all the time. Had problems with checkout as I was charge 10 pounds of late fee as the guy allegedly order a new key in the 40mins I was away. It was just to rip me off. Otherwise the student atmosphere is nice if you don't mind dealing with predatory management.

The staff at St Andrews Tourist Hostel (Konrad and Martin) is helpful and gave me advices on places to visit, shops, transportation, etc... The atmosphere is friendly and I got to meet other international travellers there with interesting stories (golfers, students, etc). The hostel is kept clean and tidy : the kitchen is well equipped, the common room has plenty of space to sit and relax, rooms are good too and not too crowded. I can recommend the place, especially,considering how affordable the hostel is. A great place to stay on your way to the Highlands, and easily accessible from Edinburgh airport with the shuttle service or the train.

I stayed at this hostel a few years ago & it is so much better now! Everything is well ordered & clean. Martin was extremely welcoming & the place feels like a refuge in the middle of town. The kitchen is well stocked, the showers are hot & it is very well heated. Excellent value for money!

Martin is lovely and the hostel is well organised and there is a nice kitchen and sitting area for everyone to share. The hostel is right in the middle of town and very easy to get in and out of. Great value for money! The only thing was the person in the bed next to me snored like a chainsaw - but that’s certainly not the hostels fault!

I had a very comfortable stay in this hostel, staff were nice (thanks Martin for keeping order :)), all facilities clean and thanks to rules everything was always ready to be used. Location is great, near bus station, I used the buses everyday day to get to some point on Fife coastal path to hike along the coast. Wifi worked fine during my stay, and nights were quiet.
