  • Excellent hostel, staff are super friendly and facilities are very clean and well maintained. The bar downstairs is excellent with good prices and a friendly atmosphere. Definitely get good value for money and will definitely be back. Excellent location just off the royal mile.

  • Good location in the old town, although down a bit of a small dark street. I was in an 8 bed dorm, but had the whole room to myself for the one night I stayed. 2 ensuites in the room, but no shower curtains so the floor in the bathroom got wet. Good water temperature and nice and hot though. Good sized lockers in the rooms, which fit my big backpack. Overall a great place to stay.

  • Great bar area on the ground floor, with relatively cheap drinks. Rooms are good, but can get to warm sometimes. Staff was polite and prestative, but not as friendly as you would expect. Great location, next to several free walking tours gathering points.

  • Great clean hostel, modern decor and great ensuite, centrally located on cowgate, just off the Royal mile...great after a night out as all the action usually ends here with late night bars
