  • During our stay at this hostel we noticed the sheets weren't changed after each person.There are no lockers in the rooms(closest ones2floors down).Kitchen is ok but signs everywhere telling you what you're not allowed and what you have to do and staff didn't clean.Staff are rudest we've seen in Europe/Scandinavia,1night we were talking with fellow travelers when a rude member of staff came and told us we have 10minutes to clean our mess and get out because it closes at 11pm.tryMalone'shostel!

  • If you don't mind a 20 mins walk to and from the center of Edinburgh, this place is for you - I stayed in the female room en suite. Comfortable beds; the shower and toilet are clean. Breakfast are not provided but you could pay 2 pounds for a continental breakfast, which is a very reasonable price. I didn't stay for pubs so I couldn't recommend.

  • Love this hostel! The staff is very nice, they helped us to carry the luggage to our room. We stayed in a 8 bed female dorm. The hostel is a bit far away from the city center, but definitely worth it!
