Fair 4.0
Beer Garden bouncers and boozers at the entrance.
Here are my concerns... To get to the front door you have to fight through a crowd of drunks, then past the two bouncers, then through more drunks in the beer garden courtyard. Then the bed was lumpy. And the floor hadn’t been swept. And the noise from the front door beer garden and it’s drunks lasted until well after 1 am. And the room was tiny. And the area is covered in graffiti. So, if you like all those this might be the hotel for you. If you’re over, say, 25 or so, and prefer a quieter, more hotel-like and less youth hostel-like experience, this might be one to avoid.

Loved it.. hated the parking.
No parking.. so be prepared. We can wirhba car and 5 pieces of luggage for a long trip.. not ideal for that. Had to park 10 min away and then carry luggage with, if you don’t have a car or lots of luggage.. you are all set. Clean, cozy (small) but very nice and in the middle of everything. Great location!

Very nice place!
First time to UK, most hotels very small, this hotel the biggest one so far. Breakfast is nice. In the yard, there are free Fringe Festival shows and they are kids friendly, food trucks, movies, and very close to Waverly station and Royal Miles. Nice place!

Good 6.0
Not for older adults-perfect for the young!
We are an older couple and this is much more a young person’s hotel. The room was so small that my husband had a difficult time getting in and out of bed. The lamp on the desk had a shade of wire mesh that was horribly dusty. The photos on the website must show the largest room in the hotel-NOT the one we were in. The shiny modern shower floor was like glass when it was wet-so slippery we were terrified of falling and NO grab bars for safety.
