Quick access to the city
Cheap and comfortable. Ideal for a couple of nights. ”
The Hostel is a really good place if you want to spend a couple of days visiting Edinburgh. A friend a I spent 3 nights there and we found it absolutely suitable for our holiday: a bed in a good dormitory room (the other roomates were respectful and we found enough space for our stuff) and some bathrooms with clean toilets and showers (hot water never failed). We didn't use the kitchen, but appreciated the breakfast provided by the staff (3 puonds for unlimited tea, coffee, hot milk, cereals, bread, butter and jams). It's not far from the city center (both Old Town and Princes street) and close to the Haymarket station which links to the airport.
Staff were terrible”
The cleanliness of the hostel I couldn’t fault, we were 3 ladies staying in a triple bunk room. We were here for a festival in the usher hall. I was absolutely disgusted with the way the staff treated us this time. Being accused of smoking drugs in the hostel which clearly wasn’t us , I don’t even smoke , I think it’s a filthy habit. Only got one wee apology which didn’t cut it with us, but I certainly wouldn’t stay here again.
I personally would not stay there again!”
Very disappointing. The room that I stayed has bedbugs! The heating was not working and it was 5 degree Celsius. I went to the reception and I have been told that "for that time of the year radiators are turned off as there is no need for it" I really think that should be up to guests to decide if they want the room hot or cold not for the Hostel management. I had to ask for some extra duvets as they did not want to turn it on. The room was facing a busy road and the window was not double glazed, so all the noise from outside could be heard inside the room. One of the window's glass has a hairline making the room even colder. On the last floor, where I stayed only 1 out of 3 showers works, so it was quiet busy to manage to have a shower. I tried to find a way to contact AGODA about the issue as it is also liable for this inconvenience, but every time I click on Contact us I am taking to my booking and no option to speak with someone or write to someone is given.
Very RUDE staff. Not helpful, disrespectful and agressive. ”
The disrespectful staff and the dirty environment. Thete was stincking bin in the common way which smelled everywhere but was not collected the whoke day. I asked for tissue during breakfast and was shouted at and told I should go and wash my habds in the kitchen.
Amazingly good stay. The hostel was located at Haymarket, a major station in Edinburgh. The room, although a shared multi-bed one, was bright, clean and well ventilated. The facility is very good. Staff were helpful and professional.
A bit far from old town”
Really like this hostel. Every thing is ok for me. The toilet is nice and big. The location is a bit far from old town. but you can take bus or tram just in front of this hostel.
too small kitchen”
having difficulties access to kitchen during evening time where small space is given. otherwise still reasonable stay. No locker system inside dorm unlike other hostel.
Out of 3 showers, only one had constant hot water. One was always cold water and the other was lukewarm at best. Not ideal in Edinburgh's wintertime! Understand that we booked during the busy NY period however it was VERY expensive for a pretty basic room in a hostel. I did like the location, was very close (an easy walk) to Royal Mile and other city attractions.
Great backpackers hostel!”
2 minutes walked from Haymarket station and easy access to princess st by tram/bus/uber/taxi or just walk for about 15-20minutes and you will reach to princess st
clean and friendly”
good place to stay, nice people, clean, pretty cozy in the dormitory but pretty freezing in the toilet/showers.
Close to anmenities ”
We stayed here as it was quite close to the train station and we were here for one night, as we were here for the festival of the dead. Only thing about the hostel was there was no bin to put our rubbish in and the toilets were separate.

30 seconds from Haymarket station ”
The Hostel has a very good location, you will see it across street when going out of Haymarket Railway station. It's just 20 minutes walking distance from Edinburgh Castle. And there's trams stop outside of railway station, which can take you to Prince Street or airport. There's no lift inside, you have to carry your luggage to the room in 3rd or 4th floor. The kitchen is a bit smaller. Inside the room, there's only one bunker bed(suitable for 1 person in upper bed and 2 persons downstairs) and 1 chair. Check-out time is 8-10:30am, and breakfast (£2 per person)also starts from 8am when the staff comes to work.
