Best option for staying in Edinburgh”

Excellent place for staying in Edinburgh. I totally recommend it. I stayed in a 8-bed room and was better than I expected: very spatious room and spatious-comfortable beds. I would stay again for my next visit. Location is perfect as it is in the old city centre, very close to the Royal Mile and the Castle. Clean & comfortable facilities, friendly staff available 24hr, and the lobby is nice for working on computer or reading a book/newspaper. Overall, the price is very fair (and cheap) for its location, high quality and excellent service. About the amneties & additional services: wide & lively restaurant-bar with tables, couches and pool tables; compete laundry room; showers and toilete alongside the room; big-spaced lockers to store all belongings (bring your own lock or you can buy one at reception); bring your own towel or you can buy one at reception; ATM & vending machines at lobby. Overall, excellent. No complaints, totally satisfied.

Fantastic value for money and amazing location”

This place was amazing and not what we were expecting when we booked a hostel at the price we paid! It was decorated lovely, it was clean, the staff were helpful. There is a great locker/luggage area which came in handy. There is a really nice big bar with cheap drinks. The rooms are small but clean and have storage. The location was the best part about it, just off the Royal Mile in the middle of everything! I would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Edinburgh. Friends of ours stayed in a hotel around the corner and paid 3 x the price and the only difference was the view from their room!

OK... But!”

Obliged to change room after first of three nights though I had chosen to avoid this in booking process. Lacking certain facilities that are available at other Safestay hostels - no privacy curtains on individual bunks and no individual bunk lights. Perhaps these are to be provided in due course. However, my stay was during the Edinburgh Fringe which meant it was busy everywhere and they appeared to be coping with the increased numbers rather well. Perhaps it was this increased business which was causing problems with the room entry cards which constantly had to be reset.

Good value on a budget”

Fantastic location, comfortable, friendly atmosphere,

I stayed for 6 nights while I explored Edinburgh & took a couple of day tours out of the city. Smart City was just off the Royal mile (so right in the heart of everything)& less than 10 minutes walk to the train station & buses. Staff were helpful, the dorm rooms were basic but comfortable, & there were plenty of bathroom facilities with two showers, two toilets & 3 sinks for 8 people to share (though they could have been cleaned a bit more frequently). Beds were comfortable & the lockers were big enough for a large pack (you need to bring your own lock). The 5 pound breakfast was good value.

Clean, Comfortable and Centrally Located”

Clean, Value for Money, Good Location

A centrally-located hostel which was not too far from Edinburgh Waverley Station with a clean and comfortable room. The Royal Mile is less than 5 min away. The kitchen was sufficiently equipped to prepare our own meals. Had some problems with the card keys that were issued though. Had to go to the reception several times before the cards were correctly programmed to allow us access to our room.

Worth the money for a trip to Edinburg”

Location, staff, price

I was pleasantly surprised at the room (a private triple with ensuite). It was of a higher standard than some hostels i have stayed in. The staff were genuinely helpful. The hostel itself is located very close to the old city so you can walk all the way up the Royal Mile to see the castle and a lot of other main attractions. It has a pub on premise and is located near good eating and drinking places. it was a ten minute walk from the airlink and tourist bus stop and the main road with the trams and shopping. All in all highly recommended!

Great Value”

Central location to Edinburgh center. Value. Extremely helpful & courteous staff.

The room was very clean albeit minimal, no TV or phone but free wifi throughout building. It's cenrtal location offered me easy walks to historic attractions and tours. The lobby paper racks were filled with tour, attraction, and local food flyers & pamphlets. My room was located on the lower floor near the bar with my window adjacent to an outdoor seating area. While this wasn't a problem on this trip, I would recommend that if noise is a concern, you ask for a room on an upper floor. Overall, I was extremely pleased and will likely return when I vacation in Edinburgh again.

Nice Location! Nice Hostel”

1. This hostel is very easy to find. Just near in Royal Mile (in the street of Blackfrias) 2. Have kitchen. Can cook and have free coffee and tea. 3. Shower is great. One of the best showers that I've tried in hostel. 4. Good location. Near Royal Mile and Cowgate. A lot of restaurants, coffee house, PUBs nearby. Walking distance too in Tesco and Sainsbury. Subway, etc. 5. Staff are very helpful and polite. They know how to handle guest's request and inquiries nicely. 6. Didn't try their breakfast so, I cannot say or rate anything about it. But, you have to pay GBP7 for their breakfast. 7. Beds comes with electrical plugs and small bulb light. The only CON is that their check-in was a long process.It took me 30 minutes to wait before they attended to me. They are strictly can accommodate one at a time. However, their staff is nice and friendly especially the ladies.

Cheap”

We stayed in a 4-bed private room with its own bathroom. Clean and simple with 2x 2-bed bunks. The room has one extra chair, a small table, and 4 lockers. If you want cheap with no frills, this is for you. But don't expect hotel facilities from a hostel or you'll be disappointed. The hostel is a short walk from the centre of Old Town, making it a very good base. Everything is within walking distance. Staff are very friendly and helpful. The cafe has breakfast for GBP4.00 which is very affordable. The downside for us is it can be very noisy. We were there when 2 schools had their field trips, and the teenagers were very noisy and uncaring of others who were staying there, running up and down the hallways, screaming. The primary school kids were much better behaved.

Superb location in old town”

I stayed in the 4-bed dormitory and had a great chat with my roommates! The hotel is located at the center of Edinburgh so getting to anywhere is easy. The shower in the toilet is very nice.

OK for staying in Edinburgh”

It looks pretty close to the train station on map but actually you need to walk a long way which includes a tiring slope if you have suitcases. Despite that, the location is really good. The room and the bathroom inside are clean and the beds are comfortable. Free blanket provided. Perfect water pressure and sufficient sockets. WIFI connection is weak. Try to register the free one of University of Edinburgh as substitute. The kitchen is well-equipped and well-maintained. Many young students during summer vacation time so it was noisy in the public area and the elevator is often full of them. Some front desk staffs seem a bit absent-minded but others are friendly and professional. Considering the price for accommodation in Edinburgh, our experience there is good overall.
