Very good 8.0
Great place
Staff were great. Place is clean. Good location for the centre all facilities in working order. Only problem was how unbelievably hot it is inside the corridors and rooms when we stayed in summer

Edbookfest break.
The accommodation was very handy for reaching city Centre in less than 25 minutes on foot. Only used to sleep- bed was fine- shower - some hairs left in shower ugh- & breakfast room ok. Other guests were so noisy & inconsiderate at 5am with banging doors & loud voices!! It was grand for our 3 days at Edinburgh book festival.

Fair 4.0
Really bad
The studio I got did not even remotely resemble the pictures online. Additionally, the studio was in a very bad condition and very dirty, the curtain was broken and there is water damage around the windows. There was this rancid smell in the room coming from the bathroom. The bed is really uncomfortable. But then again, this is really cheap so what can you really expect. Fine enough for two nights. The service is fine, but staff is not very attentive. The location is excellent, and the WiFi was very good. I won't stay here again and wouldn't recommend anyone to stay here unless its the last option.

Drain on shower was blocked. Very frustrating having to pay for basics, such as towels (and carrying them to your room), and and for bag drop - perhaps they believe they don't have to offer a full hotel service, but at the price charged they ought to.

Rough Sleep
I understand as student halls being used as hotel rooms during the summer there wasn't much to expect in terms of service and luxury but the beds where ridiculously uncomfortable, pillows were paper thin and the mattress was lumpy. After a day out sightseeing the bed only made my body feel worse. If they put a bit more effort into giving you a decent bed, blankets and pillows to sleep on this would be a positive review. The room had no air-con or even a fan- you had to put down a £20 deposit, no towels were provided and you had to request body wash/soap. The only positive aspect is the location- very close to the city centre.
