Niot happy
The room was un ckean.bare wire cold water in our sink, no housekeeping at all, even though it stated there was daily ckeaner, even no new loo roll put in our shower room.we had to emoty our own bin, no top up of tea & coffee facilities.

You can find better
Although there were "no smoking" signs throughout the building, there was strong cigarette smell in the guest house, especially on the first floor. Parking is not "limited spaces." It is "if you can find it on a side street." Best aspect: on several bus lines that give quick access to central city.

Ok stay
The place was alright, but slightly odd scent. Must be due to being old building.

Poor 2.0
Awful hotel stay...sorry hostel.
No house keeping during the stay in room or toilet Dirty wardrobe shelves not been dusted in ages,dusty skirting boards. Bed base badly stained, mattress uncomfortable due to springs sticking thru. No headboard and only one pillow each. Doors creaked,floorboards created...everything creaked. This is not 3* but 1* . Tea & coffee was provided but no milk. Worst thing of all was some guest were smoking in the hotel stairs and entrance area with the smell going up into the rooms. No smoke alarms in our room (2) we have been in touch with Edinburgh council already about the issue of smoke alarms.
