This was a last-minute booking for me during my impromptu visit to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The location is great. It's just outside the center of all of the fringe action. The price was very reasonable, especially considering the hyper-inflated prices of every square inch of real estate during the month of August in Edinburgh. There is a washer and drier and the place felt pretty secure, overall. I stayed in a dorm room which, like most dorm rooms, feels like just a step above a prison cell.
I'm not sure if I just got one of the worst rooms in the lot but the bed was, by far, the most uncomfortable bed I have ever experienced in my life. I could feel the springs pushing into my back – and it didn't feel good! The pillow was pretty much non existent except for a few feathers, I suppose. The room was also extremely dark and I intentionally spent as little time as possible in it.
But, you get what you pay for and if you are looking for a cheap, no-frills option during your stay in Edinburg, this place will do just fine. I would probably stay again if I could not find another place but I would definitely bring an egg crate or some type of padding for the bed next time!
