  • This hostel was very nice! It was clean, had lots of facilities, friendly staff and a nice design. It also has a bar where you can socialize and participate in a quiz or listen to live music! The dorm room was fine, with a good atmosphere. The hostel is around the corner of Haymarket and the city centre is on appr. 10 minutes walking distance! I would definitely come back here!

  • This was one of the nicest hostels I have stayed in and it felt very safe and clean. The doors to the rooms were very loud and heavy though, so if you had to leave or enter the room late at night it makes a lot of noise. I also had trouble getting hot water in the shower two of the three days I was there. Other than that, I liked that the rooms had a lot of space and high ceilings so it didn't feel cramped or stuffy. Overall a good experience and pretty nicely located as well! Would recommend!

  • I was searching for a place to search for an accomodation in Edinburgh and stayed in a 12-person mixed dorm room. I was very surprised - it was very clean and a silent environment to get a good rest in the evening. Free community room with TV, WiFi and a computer, free available kitchen with all things to make a good meal for yourself. Staff very friendly and the value for money is very very excellent. Would recommend it to my friends.
