    Great Price, You get what you pay for

    Excellent rates during a busy period however that saying you get what you pay for is perhaps true in my experience. Each Flat consists of 4 rooms which are spacious, clean and lots of storage available. The additional use of a kitchen and dining area is a real bonus, a shared shower and toilet was available but bring your own hand soap as none was provided during a pandemic. The walls are pretty thin so don't expect to much privacy and what you have to bear in mind is this is student accommodation not being used during the holidays so each room door is a fire door. They close hard and secure so you may hear them close and open or worse bang all day long.

    Quite pricey for a student accommodation but the location was good and everything was in good condition. There's wasn't much cleaning during my stay though.

    Rooms quite small and no window looking out, only a roof light. Mattress quite lumpy and uncomfortable. Amenities in kitchen very good . Basic but fine if you’re not staying in the room long.

    This is a students' residence rented out to visitors outside term time. The individual areas are small but there is a large communal area equipped with a kitchen and a living area. There are 2 showers serving 6 rooms. I found the self-catering element useful. The staff were quick to rectify problems such as non-working lights. They allow you to leave luggage before check-in and also on the day of checkout in order for you to explore the nearby town centre. We like the place and will like to go again if the opportunity arises.

    Great stay in Edinburgh

    I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was pleasantly surprised. Easy to find in a great location opposite summerhall venue (sadly none of the shows I was seeing were in summerhall!) but easily walkable to all venues really. Room was small but perfectly formed for one, clean and tidy. It was a shared bathroom but all was clean. I wasn’t expecting towels but they were left for me which was helpful. My only criticism was the firmness of the bed, but that is subjective anyhow! Would definitely stay here again!

    Great location, small for two.

    The accommodation was very small for two but we did expect this. You have to share bathroom and kitchen with other people, we also knew this would be the case. The room it's self was clean but the corridors were in need of a little attention. The soft closing on the doors were not working so there was the noise of door banging. The decor is very grey and slightly depressing. The location is, however, really good for central Edinburgh. The check in was easy and the young staff very friendly. I would stay again for The Fringe.
