  • The security was pretty good - each person received their own locker free of charge. The bathrooms were co-ed. Also, the towels for hands and face for anyone's nighttime routine were provided in the bathrooms as well, so you only need to buy a towel for showers. I stayed in an 8 person mixed dorm (I'm female) that was filled, and the only compliant I have is that the beds are very very uncomfortable. However, I will state that I am picky about my beds...

  • A nice surprise in the heart of Edinburgh, it was my first time staying at a hostal. In the heart of the city, everything was very clean and staff extremely helpful. I arrived 6 hours before the check in time and they still let me shower and use the rest of the facilities. Is close to everything and is a 10 minutes walk to the Bus station, and to a lot of pubs, never used an uber or even the bus because of how close everything was. The outlets and lockers are right next to the bed.
