“cosy hostel and good location”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

The hostel is just 3 minutes away from the coach station. 5 minutes away from Princess Street where you can take a bus to go to the airport. 20-25 minutes away from Edinburgh Catsle by walk. While you are walking to the castle, you will be walking throuhout the city centre. Very reasonable price. There was a Hungarian staff who made a great atmosphere. She told me everything about Edinburgh. I have only 1 negative comment: there are only 2 showers.

BSB is a small, dark hostel with character. You may not get the best facilities (bag lockers, showers etc) but is really a very friendly, very sweet, very relaxed but well run establishment.

Has a guest computer and kitchen and two bathrooms, and a homely atmosphere. Andrea (current host) will make you feel at home. It's a hostel with heart, not a big glitzy backpacker prison like most chain hostels.

What a wonderful surprise, it was like stepping into someone's home! I really recommend it, because it is in a great location. 5 minutes from the main street (Princess street) and from the Edinburgh Waverly Train Station. The rooms and bathrooms are clean, and there are hot showers. There is free wifi and free breakfast! The hostel is very small and has a friendly atmosphere so it is easy to make friends and get to know the other travelers. The owner is a bit rude, but the other girl who works there Andrea is a babe!!! She organizes pub crawls, dinners, and clubbing nights out so you can have a good time at night too :) She also sits you down with a map and shows you all the things you need to know.

Room Tip: Get the rooms with less people, otherwise get ready for a lot of snoring or drunk people making nois...

I stayed with my friend to this hostel during Easter Holidays. It's awesome! Clean and cozy!You can stay at the living room and watch numerous of movies and socialize with the rest of the people that stay there, when you don't visit the beautiful Edinburgh!
