          I found the staff very welcoming and friendly and extremely helpful, which created a very friendly atmosphere throughout the hostel. This was my second visit, but the first time on my own. I would definitely recommend the hostel and will definitely be back.

          I have no complaints at all.

          Everything was as expected = good, good value for money - close to the city center

          missing towels

        • Older travelers

          We got a special deal £27 for twin room. The room was clean and warm. It took us a while to find but that was more our fault than hostel. No towels when first got there but enquired at recetion and got them no problem. If you are staying for a busy weekend and only needing somewhere to sleep I would reccommend here. We will definately return.

          Every thing was clean. Staff courteous. very little noise in Hostel but noise from traffic was intrusive until one gets used to it.

          only one towel supplied and no bin for disposal of sanitary items in toilet

          well they upgrated my room from 10 persons dorm to 4 persons for free, it was very comfortble in the room. the staff were very friendly. I left my phone in the room , they kept it for me until I got back to Edinburgh to collect it , it was so sweet!

          well you need to pay 1 pound per hour to store your luggage, that's quite expensive especially when u need to store the case for the whole day!.

          Near the center, only 12 mins walk from the main train station & city center. Clean bed & well-equipped kitchen

          Staffs re not very helpful, dont even know how to guide tourist using local bus services. Internet charges are too expensive compared to other same standard hostels.

          Clean and modern. Has everything a budget traveller needs - comfortable beds, clean rooms, helpful staff, good food and internet.

          Suited me down to the ground!

          Location, facilities and breakfast.

          The presence of a large student group meant difficulty in obtaining breakfast, although hostel staff were great in identifying my needs and bypassing normal service arrangements to provide me with a cooked meal.

          atmosphere and staff

          maybe roooms are not very clean

        • Single
          9.2

          It's clean and the bed was comfortable. There are extra bathroom outsides which I could use when my room's bathroom is occupied and there are many electrical plugs in the bedroom

          Room was facing the road, so it's noisy. at 3am I could still hear people shouting and walking outside.

          Good position, close to the city centre. The room was very clean and the facilities within the room were up-to-date and everything I required.
