    A wonderful experience ”

    I went in Edinburgh with my friend for 2 days trip snd booked a private double room here. I was surprised to see that all the facilities were available, including plates or cutlery or anything you would ever need in everyday life !! It was certainly value for money . The staffs were friendly, room was clean & secured and there were 3 shared bathrooms in the apartment I lived ! It was wonderful.. the only things I didn't like is that there was no handwash in the toilet & the windows of the room could never be closed, even in the winter! Overall a very good experience & I would definitely recommend EH to anyone out there !

    The walls are so thin”

    The people who stayed opposite me kept on banging their door early in the morning. It was so loud the 2 days I stayed I was forced to wake up around 7am. There is no elevator, so travelers with heavy luggages have to rethink of staying here. If you are unlucky to be staying in the 3rd or 4th floor. You have to carry it up by staircase.

    It's a good value for money and in the center of Edinburgh”

    This should be rated as it is. A Hostel so you have the shared bathrooms simple bedspace things for a meager price point, but for that it is spot on good. It's right in the smack of old city. it's walking distance for food and attractions. The problem is it is right beside bars so you'll hear drunk people chantting around 3am.

    Location only!”

    Requested for a high floor but given the first floor. Had to close window to shut off noises. Try to stay away from building 1. The entry way is like a slump. Dirty drainage pipe is right there. Room carpet gets dirty easily. Had to turn on the hot water boost each time or else no hot water. Needed to wait for an hour each time for the water to boil again. Six rooms to share one shower n two toilets. Very challenging! However, the staff are friendly n gave us two blankets to make up the floor issue. The kitchen is clean n useful but people do not return what they have used. Again challenging. Stay there only for the location.

    Inflated price during the festival”

    I had a private room with a shared bathroom. Room was old and clean-ish. Dents in the wall & loud at night, but earplugs fixed that. No mirror in the room. Rented a towel for 1 pound. The kitchen was huge. Restroom with the shower was not labelled, but once I found it is was hot with good pressure. WAY overpriced because of the festival, but it was the last bed in the city under 300 pounds, as best I could tell. THERE IS NO LIFT. So I carted 2 bags up 5 sets of stairs; however the girl at reception helped me and was super nice.

    budget stay”

    the room (twin room) is small and there was just enough space for opening 2 20' luggage... it is close to old town but if you walk there from the rail station, it is just a nightmare... A lot of stairs going up and down (because of the irregular landscape of Edinburgh) so it is actually hard for you to walk with your luggage.

    cruddy & creepy”

    10 minute walk to Princes street

    we were in Edinburg during the festivals so I'm not going to complain about the noise but people throwing up in the courtyard at 4:00 AM is a bit much. Rubbish bins were never picked up & floor was never washed. We were supposed to have an ensuite bathroom but since there were no lift to our 5th floor room they gave us a room on the 3rd floor in another building (for the same rate) with only 2 bathrooms & 1 shower on the floor for all 5 units. I didn't dare take a shower in that cruddy thing.

    Location, convenience, price

    Basically you're in college dorms. The beds are slightly uncomfortable. But it's close to the Royal Mile and lots of places to eat and drink along the North bridge area. To find this place there's two ways. The 1st is to go down North Bridge until you get to Chambers street. Take a right turn to Guthrie street, follow Guthrie to the Euro Hostel. Or from the Royal Mile, go around Tron Kirk to Blair street down to Cowgate. Turn right and follw Cowgate to Euro Hotel. To add further, if you're here for the Edinburgh fringe this is the place to stay. Surrounded by lots of venues and bars. There is a kitchen facility so you can save a bundle by cooking your own meals. Hope all this helps.

    The room was cold. It's lucky that I booked a twin room with two blankets for me to use. The hostel provides only an indoor accommodation and indoor shared bathroom. If you want a little more than that, don't bother.

    Dorms”

    Best things: location is short walk to train station, private room, shared bathrooms clean

    I was disappointed as ratings were so high I expected more. The beds boing when you shift. We stayed in 2 different rooms and the days were broken up by an out of town excursion. Both nights were difficult to sleep because there was constant door slamming very late and very early. Not exaggerating but 65 times there was squeak....slam! One of the nights was cheap enough to justify, but one was just too expensive for such nonsense to be going on. Also you must deposit 5 pounds per towel plus a 2 pound usage fee per towel. I didn't have that much on me so I didn't get one :( Had to use a sweater. I thought it would be like kinda fun to stay in a dorm for a couple of nights but it really wasn't due to the random hours of some others staying there. I am not actually hard to please. Just know these things if you stay there. It is a 1 or 0 star hotel. Have no idea how come it had such high satisfaction stars which is why I chose it. Also luggage storage is 2 pounds a bag which we used.
