    Well I lived in 8-bed room and since the only thing you really need to do is sleep there it's fine. The shower worked fine but the smell and the cleanliness of the toilet and kitchen. Wow man. Bad.

    Great edinburgh city”

    Friendly and helpful staff, great location easy access to the airport

    The communal areas are really nice decorated and the rooms were pretty basics and was relatively unattractive, but somehow clean, gotta share the bathroom and the showers with few other rooms but it's not so bad. it's easy to walk to the spots, the restaurants, the shops. also, the royal mile itself is an aged street. All along the royal mile is full of really nice cafés, restaurants and pubs. The staff was really friendly and helpful. And it's easy to get to the airport by bus which leaves from round the corner.

    lovely hostel with good value ”

    cheap, clean, friendly staff

    I traveled to Scotland by myself last december and spent one night at this little hostel. Pretty decent room but met some very friendly people. The only thing i would complain is that the location is a little hard to find.

    Good Location Hotel ”

    The hotel in on the Royal Mile, it is very good if we don't want to walk to much. Moreover, the pub, restaurant and shops just besides the hostel, if you can sleep well in different sounds, this is a good hostel you can choose.

    Very good hostel, clean and spacious. The staff is very helpful and I love their historical decoration without too much modern style. Moreover, the location is good to stay late at night on the Royal Mile, especially after ghost walk!

    Hotel super bien situé”

    emplacement, le prix, la fete

    L'hotel est bien situé dans le centre ville et c'est bon marché mais ca s'arrête la car a part ca, il est vieux, chambres,wc,douches sales et avec des gens assez jeunes donc extrêmement difficile de dormir le soir. Donc si vous voulez faire la fete, c'est l'hotel ideal par contre, si vous souhaitez dormir, pas votre chemin.

    emplacement, accueil chaleureux, rapidité d'enregistrement

    L'accueil et l'emplacement était correct.Par contre la chambre était minuscule, il n'y avait même pas une lampe de chevet, le matelas était très inconfortable, on sentait les ressorts.En ce qui concerne les sanitaires, c'était très sale et ça sentait mauvais. Les douches n'étaient pas du tout pratiques.L'Hotel était très bruyant et mal isolé. En résumé, nous avons passé une mauvaise nuit et sommes très déçu.
