Let me say first off that the staff are lovely, friendly and always happy to go the extra mile to help or answer a question - very refreshing in such a large,cheap hostel. Also good to note as we were there over the Fringe so they were very busy.
Rooms are very small and basic. No mirror so be warned - if you want to do makeup or hair in your room BYO! Only one pillow provided (not a problem for me but my friend had neck ache!) Towels are free and you can get them on check in from reception. Plenty of plug sockets which was good.
Apartments are biiiig - about 10-12 rooms to every one. Big kitchen/diners with lots of seating and crockery/cutlery too.
Bathrooms are hit and miss - the one closest to our room had a broken shower head dodgy shower door. We used another one obviously but was a shame we couldn't use the closest to us. They are all cleaned daily and well stocked with loo roll but note they don't provide hand soap.
Fab location on Cowgate and not too noisy considering where it is based.
Was really frustrated that the numerous irons they have available from reception were unable to be located the entire time we were there. If I had known they would never be able to find them (not checked out properly) I would have gone out and bought a trsvel iron on day one. Limited my clothing choice which was frustrating.
All in all would stay again - is great for the price, can imagine it being brilliant if you're in a big party as you could all be in the same apartment.
Would definitely stay again:-)
