A great central location
The hostel is very central in a fantastic location, the staff were friendly and helpful. The place was clean and a pleasure to visit. The only downside is that my Pod c9ukd have done with a new mattress, it was slightly worn causing a groove which I fell into as I slept.

CoDE Loft Edinburgh
Very enjoyable - friendly and extremely helpful staff, great breakfast and the Penthouse was comfortable but a bit warm at night. We stayed at the CoDE Loft Edinburgh. Finally, excellent central location between George Street and Princes Street opposite the Castle.

Poor 2.0
Not suitable for business trips
1. Nice dish washing experience with ~£75per night 2. No TV Service. I should get a refund back 3. One Light was told to be repaired, but they forgot like TV to repair. 4. Didn’t clean even I told you can clean one day as I was staying for 3 days 5. Hand shower was leaking water. 6. Heater in the toilet was not working.

Great stay
The facilities were great and it was very clean and comforting. I'm grateful that breakfast was put out the night before so I could quickly grab something on my way out early in the morning. The only thing that put me off slightly was that the back entrance to the Wetherspoon was very close and it could get very noisy at night, especially when they're chucking out bottles.

One of the best hostels I’ve stayed at
Quite happy with my stay, centrally located and facilities were well maintained. The sleeping pod did not feel too cramped. It was spacious enough to sit up. Great shower facility as well.

A Edinburgh hostel gem
I stayed here for a week in a 6 female pod room. My first time in a pod. Much more peferable than an open bunk-more room, quieter and above all private. The hostel, being in centre of the city, was close to everything. including transport. The staff were lovely - helpful and friendly. Highly recommended.

Good 6.0
Good location, but not worth it.
Location and cost was great. The bathroom looked like it’s seen better days...there were mold growing along the windowsill. Only one toilet for the entire floor. No stairs so you will have to lug your luggage severs flights of narrow stairway. And because it’s location in an alley, expect to be woken up at crack of dawn with delivery trucks, garbage pick up and delivery men rolling bottles of alcohol into neighboring bars.

Good value, but bring your earplugs!
This hostel is in a central key section of town with access to many cultural and historic sites. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The "pods" provided good privacy, and the showers were clean with adequate hot water. Drawbacks - excessive noise outside, so be sure to bring earplugs that are effective (ones provided in pod were not functional for me). Trash truck unloading dumpster adjacent to the hostel leaves quite an odor in the rooms in the evenings - so an air freshener would be helpful. WiFi works well. Overall a good value for people wanting inexpensive accommodations - hope this helps!
