    Highly recomended for a budget hostel in edinburgh. I should come and stay from the first day in edinburgh. But because the picture not so appealing, so i choose other hostel one fine day back from my highland tour, i booked this hostel to try out, because the best rate for the day. Surprised by the cleanliness, comfort of this hostel lift for your luagage First day i stay at disable room. Surprise me, a hostel with disable room. Inside each room, there are 3 toilets with shower Each bed with curtain for privacy Windows each room, because i have stay in different room Location justbin the center of old town Tidy Laundry room £3.5 for washing Cooking area Really highly recomendbthis hostel, come and stay here for budget traveller.

    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.

    Everything is great, but every time you flush the toilet, there would be a noise which would last for a few minute, and that made me feel a bit annoying when using the toilet at night (especially when others are sleeping).

    This hostel is great! It's cheap but clean and it is located in the old town where almost everything is just walking distance, the royal mile street, lots of pubs nearby, walking distance to the station, the edinburgh castle and museums! I definitely recommend this hostel. It's worth more than the amount you pay! :)

    The hostel is in a great location in the old town and close to the train station. The room was clean and warm. There is a lift for those who can't climb the stairs. There is a bar on the ground floor that also does a great breakfast for £4.50. Check in was quick and easy and when we checked out there was somewhere to store our luggage. I definitely stay here again

    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!

    Conveniently located near main shopping area, well equipped with bar and resturant, reasonable price even during Edinburgh Int' festival

    everything is good, we travel in a group of 4, and booked a 4-bed ensuite room we have our own bed and the bed is big enough indeed for 2 persons. it was a bit noisy outside probably becos of the festival, and the room only has one window it may be stuffy during the day, but okay when at night other than day, everything is good.

    Nice hostel, central location. ”

    I stayed in a 5 bed female only dorm, I was provided a towel and the room included a hairdryer and straighteners which were a bonus. The lockers were a good size and wooden so no crashing. My bed had a reading lamp and easy access to a plug, but not all beds on my dorm did. The one ensuite bathroom was a little tricky at times and meant people were noisy. But the shower and toilet were separate which was good. The shower room would have benefited from a shelf to put toiletries. Remember ear plugs and eye mask. They definitely improved my experience. The hostel is brilliantly located in old town. The shared kitchen was lacking in a few things, so I didn’t use it. The reception staff were friendly and helpful. In all, it was a great place to stay. I would stay here again.

    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.
