    Excellent location, very small rooms, we had one room with a faulty lock, not very clean, no service at reception before 9 o’clock, broadband connection kept coming and going, dirty kitchens, some of the issues were resolved after we posted first impressions on Expedia. We will not return.

    Excellent hostel in prime location. Easy walk through a delightful park into the old town, with plenty of eating options nearby. Highly recommended.

    Ok hostel, just depressing

    Stayed here for 1night. The hostel is a bit depressing, just got no character. I couldn't stay here for any great length of time. Don't get me wrong the hostel is clean and tidy with 2 homely kitchens and a TV lounge. It's like going to your grandmother house that's the best I can describe it. The hostel is a good 15min walk from the city centre across the meadows

    We will be back! Clean and comfortable

    The staff here were really friendly and helpful and definitely made the stay here worthwhile. As a hostel you usually expect small and cramped places but there were two lovely kitchens and a lounge to meet your friends and if you're not a high maintenance hotel visitor and just want a nice clean bed for the evenings then this is the place to go! A 10 - 15 minute walk to a main area of the City means the location was fantastic and quiet in the evenings. Where I will be staying again for any future trips to Edinburgh!
