Very good 8.0
Best value for the Fringe
Third year staying here for the fringe - excellent location, basic but clean facilities, great staff. Being able to leave luggage (at no extra charge) is great too.

Very good 8.0
OK stay during the Fringe Festival
This hostel is ideally located for attending the Fringe festival, but it is far from glamourous. Each room is quite small, basic and the floorboard creak loudly. The shared bathroom (between five) on each corridor is outdated and super basic. You will need to bring or hire towels and toiletries as they are not provided here. Good think is that there is a shared kitchen with fridge, so if you want to cook and eat on a budget or just have a cup of tea you can with ease, but walking down the corridor expect more creaking. In my room too, the window was open, which made it very cold and noisy during my stay as people talking in the courtyard and arriving early (late am) to check in were often inconsiderate of guests trying to sleep off an early AM return to sleep. On the up side it is fairly cheap most nights, but I would not pay more than £40 a night to stay here. Even at that point is overcharging aka a theft from your pockets.
