Ok, but not great.
Used it as a cheap place to sleep within walking distance of city centre. Was good for this, not the best hostel I've stayed in. Staff were polite enough, good showers, but bathrooms didn't seem like they were cleaned for the 3 days I stayed.

Polite Service and Quiet Location
The building is very nice and check-in was quick with polite service. We did not use the shower facilities due to the smell in the room the first night stay. The mixed dormitory had a rough smell of mold and wet clothes which isn't surprising since it rains a lot in Edinburgh. It cleared the next night since there was only 4 of 18 people in the mixed dormitory room and we sprayed deodorant spray. The straightener in the ground floor women's restroom needs to be cleaned daily. It had brown crust build up on it which we refused to use. A lot of the plugs in the cages did not work and you had to test to see if they worked. These are things that need to be addressed however, the overall stay was fine. I would recommend it to people who are looking for a night or two stay.

West End ideal
Everything absolutely perfect except the noise guests are allowed to make early hours of morning on the landing and slamming doors etc with no respect for other visitors staying over.
