(comforts of home)! The 6 nations rugby was on the weekend i stayed and the welsh were in town, savage craic altogether in the pub downstairs. Will definitely book again. I cant wait!!! Thanks Malones

The rooms were fantastic, more like a good hotel
Great location for all events in Edinburgh.
The bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept on in any hostel/hotel - ask for the Megabed special. No noise between rooms. Clean showers etc. outside rooms

Very plesent and welcoming staff. You have one the the best pubs (Malones) in Edinburgh down stairs where they serve a great breakfast.

Thanks for the stay
I'll be back

My group were the first ever to stay in the newly opened hostel.
The beds were the most comfortable hostel beds i've ever experienced, the staff were very friendly, and best craic of all, you're in the pub (Malones Edinburgh).

We were there for the six nations Ireland france match and having the pub downstairs hopping crazy was an added bonus!!!!!

Good Grub in the pub, Excellent location in the city centre minutes from the Grassmarket/Haymarket area, and at that price you couldn't beat it with a big stick.

big up guys
