  • All the doors were unlocked 24/7 and it was noicy during the nights, because of the bars downstairs. Lockers in the dorms were big, but you could open them even if they were locked... Kitchen was a bit unclean and no breakfast. You have to pay for wifi and no computers to use. Good location :)

  • Fine youth hostel and pretty well-located, both close to train station, bus station, old town (Royal Mile) and eveything you needed. The Security was not perfect because everyone had access to all rooms. All in all, a nice and cheap place to stay :)
