Very Good8.0
Well contained Hostel!
Staying in a container was actually cool. They were spacious and warm. The staff are friendly and helpful. The premises were clean. There was a kitchen with microwaves, kettles and toasters. The toilets were clean as were the showers. The location was easy to find despite being three miles from centre of Edinburgh. There are frequent buses to town. Good large supermarkets within walking distance.

Very pleasant stay
Was a pretty nice stay no issues at all, room and other areas all clean, little bit basic but exactly what you expect lovely staff and other guests, but be pre warned if you want peaceful and quiet early nights then this may not be the pace for you, Overall was a very nice time thanks
