  • Great location, friendly staff, good breakfast and a big kitchen / dining room full of activities and fun. Bedrooms can be a little bit noisy if you are close to the street and doors slams can also be disturbing during the night but my stay was great

  • This was a great hostel and I would definitely recommend it to anyone. Be sure to keep an eye out for the extra tours/ services that they provide. They provided us with a complimentary free walking tour of Edinburgh. Overall I will stay there again when I return to Edinburgh!!

  • The toilets in the Ladies washroom kept breaking, but the hostel location and environment was excellent!

  • The best location in the city for any hotel/hostel. The Canadian staff took their Canadian polite efficiency with them. It was a pleasure dealing with them. Hardly spent time their so can not comment on other aspects Wish there were an enforced policy of quietness in the corridors after certain hours at night. And the washroom doors should have hanging hooks so that we can change more easily there.
