  • The best hostel I stayed in on my two week trip to Scotland. The atmosphere in the hostel is very warm and cozy. It's a small hostel, but perfect for meeting people if traveling alone. 1/4 of the people living there are also work part time at the hostel. They are like a family and they will welcome you. I also liked the fire place and the hot chocolate after a day of exploring Edinburgh in rain.

  • Sweet hostel with great location. Breakfast is huge for only 2GBP. Possibilities for hanging stuff are missing in both the dorms and the bathrooms. Apart from this I can really recommend this hostel.

  • I liked the hostel and is very clear what the offer from the beginning. The staff was friendly and willing to help you. Te toilet was not always clean but as a place with very people I know is difficult to keep it ok. I would put more hangers in order to make easier to people to hang towels, clothes, etc...
