Stayed 1 night in December 2016
10-15 min walk to train station”
We only stayed there a night just to get the train to Inverness at 9am the next morning so we missed the cooked breakfast coz they only serve it from 8:30 - 10am but least they let us have continental one early. Our room was on 4th floor and there is no lift but luckily we only got a big backpack so it was not so hard to take it up there but wouldn't recommend it you are traveling with big suitcase. The bed was not so clean but it's alright just for a night. Shower was good.

Good location with lesser facilities”
I stayed there last week , my room was on 3rd floor and there was no lift moreover the beds are too small in twin bed rooms. Otherwise property is centrally located and well maintained guest house type. I would rate 3 out of 5 star.

A nice, quiet place near the Water of Leith with a friendly staff.”
The Location is satisfactory. You are a 15 min walk away from Prince's Street and the nearest of the city center, and 45 min away from the furthest of the city center. The area is residential and quiet, but down the street you have a main street from Prince's Street to the Haymarket, where you have pubs, shops, smaller, cheaper restaurants as well as nicer ones. If you like to spend the night out partying, be ready for a ~40 min walk to the most active part of the town. On the other hand, the Hostel is situated 10 mins away from the beautiful and peaceful Water of Leith, which would be a highlight for those who want to enjoy a quiet afternoon in this small pocket of nature inside the city. So +1 to the location thanks to this. The Hostel has its own bar on the floor ground, common facilities downstairs and rooms and bathrooms upstairs. The bar is open to all with average to slightly above average prices (including your resident discount). That area is extremely nice and clean, and on some nights the bar is a nice plce to hang out peacefully, on some others there are activities planned (live music, quizzes...). The common facilities and room on the other hand are only cleaned once a week, on monday. A lot of people using only a couple stalls, the bathroom can be pretty unclean. They have suffered quite a lot from the use as well. The kitchen is okay-ish clean, although I believe the rules regarding cleaning and dishwashing should be better enforced. The bed linens were not all really clean. The common room ("backpacker's lounge") is not great (a couple tables, a tv, a computer), but there is a nice small, quiet (again, residential area), garden with a couple tables. On the other hand, the kitchen is pretty cool with a variety of utensils (although most are in poor condition), and you have access to various plugs and lockers. The staff was for the most part extremely friendly and helpful. All in all, recommended for someone solo traveling or in couple looking for

Just okay”
The location is okay and the room is very spacious. The toilet is kind of impressive. The female staff is not so friendly. It's one of the cheapest stay in town I suppose, so I won't complain.

Our stay was good although we were very disappointed to not be able to have dinner on the Saturday night - kitchen was too busy at 7 pm and closed by 8:30 pm. There are not many options close by so eating choices where limited. Most staff were pleasant and helpful except for one female staff member who was rude and not helpful at all.
