  • The wi-fi connection was a tragedy and some of the stuff wasn't friendly.

  • Im sorry but I did not enjoy at all. The room was smelly, the sheets were smelly and wasted, the pillows were smelly, the carpet was dirty and I think the room was too small to be one of 16 beds. In top of that, you do not care who you host so Im my room was sleeping a crazy old man solo traveler that screamed for everything and smelt of sweat and poor personal hygine. Also, Disgusting toilets having the floor wet/watered 24/7 and broken showers with boiling hot water that one couldnt regulat

  • Rang ahead to advise we would have to arrive after the last check-in time. We were told this wouldn't be a problem. When we arrived we were told we had to pay a late arrival fee of £5pp. This in itself wasn't the end of the world, but the man who greeted us was very rude and unhelpful. Didn't give any info without being asked and spoke to us like idiots. Rest of our stay was pleasant, cheap and without any problems. Bathrooms could do with a bit of TLC, but it's nothing terrible.

  • Didn't even end up staying here as it's quite far from the city centre.. not even on main city maps. Ended up staying at a hostel right on the royal mile for a cheaper price than I would have paid these guys. Also, didn't really rate them 0%, but I put that for location and was required to rate all sections... From the website it seems like a very nice hostel!

  • Overall a nice, clean hostel, with good value for the money. Only real complaint is that the Internet didn't work at all.
