Great accommodation
Great base for a visit to the fringe.
Elyssia, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Great value close to the city centre
This is standard student accommodation. Considering it's half the price of the standard hotel prices for the local area I would highly recommend it. It's about a 15 min walk to the castle. There is a communal kitchen which is great for making coffee in the morning.

Good 6.0
Cheap place to stay
Room was basic and small but good enough for the price. There were no toiletries provided at all not even hand soap which was annoying. Was fine to stay for a few nights on my own but would be very cramped with two people in the room
Kirsty, gb1 night trip

Excellent accomadation it was large enough and very clean
David, gb5 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
clean, but beds uncomfortable.
Thing to remember is this place is student accommodation so you get a bed, a wardrobe, a small desk, small private bathroom and not much else. The buildings are modern and very clean though. The mattresses are not comfortable at all unfortunately, but if you just need somewhere to sleep only for a few nights then its perfect. There is a shared kitchen area you can use which does have seating and tables.
Matthew, gb3 night romance trip

Good place for a short stay during Edinburgh Fringe. Comfortable and clean and staff friendly
