  • Beds were very unstable and placed in a row, so when a person turned around in the bed next to mine, my bed vibrated aswell. I guess the beds would be okay to sleep in if they were further apart, so you were not woken up by the vibrationsas I was. Otherwise nice helpful staf, and the place felt secure and (sometimes) clean. Hint nice bathrooms on the top floor :).

  • I had a private room and it was comfortable and very good price for a private. Great location as well, close to the sights in old town as well as the train station. I would stay here again.

  • Edinburgh Backpackers was a fantastic place to stay in a safe and prime location. If you're interested in the pent rooms, then get ready for a bit of a climb to the top of the building given they don't have a lift. The shower was rather small but it was functioning and warm. The rooms were nice and large, kitchen and sitting areas overlooking the town. Overall, this was a great hostel and I recommend it to any couple seeking a short stay in Edinburgh.
