    Overall I really enjoyed my stay. The only issue I had was that the bed in the room I was assigned was already occupied. Then, when they moved me to another room, the bed was occupied again. I think the staff should make more of an effort to ensure that the space will be clear once the visitor arrives. Other than that, a really positive experience.

    I liked that it was in the middle of city centre and close to a lot of the attractions in Edinburgh. For the price it was fine.

    It was easy to get to from the train. It was in a great location and the restaurant was phenomenal. The lift is out, so be prepared to tote luggage 6 flights on narrow stairs. The beds sre definitely stacked and the lockers are to small for even a carry on case

    The bed in the twin suite was really comfortable but the shower wasn’t great. Could also do with a curtain on the little window and the elevator was scary... honestly thought it was going to break down

    Comfy and Well Located

    This hostel is amazing. My husband and I needed a reasonably priced place to stay downtown, as we wanted to go see the Christmas markets, etc. It's in the perfect location and within walking distance to just about everything. The breakfast is continental and what you would expect (toast, meats, cheeses, fruit, coffee, juice), and the private room we booked was super comfortable. Whenever we make it back to Edinburgh, we're staying here again!
