Good Hostel, Bad Staff
Good Hostel, room was 20 beds despite booking for 18 but not really an issue. The bathrooms were kept clean. There are not lockers for your items and there are no wall sockets for charging anything. There are charging lockers that cannot be locked. The service is less than desirable as you are lucky to find someone working the bar/reception desk. As all I was seeking was a place to sleep this served its purpose with a clean bathroom, but do not expect a very helpful staff.

Fantastic Hostel, Satisfied Customer
It was pretty quiet when I was there due to it being the beginning of the week, but the staff was still very hospitable. The neighborhood is very nice and a little away from the action, but only a short walk to the tram to get into town again. I enjoyed my stay and will be back again.

Very nice place to stay
It's very nice and clean. I stayed in hostel and it was big enough for 12 people. Beds are very comfortable and clean nice sheets. Staff very friendly and helpful. You can have free continental breakfast or for 2 pounds in the bar, or for 6 pounds full breakfast, which is very good. You can have meal prepared during the day and all food and drinks 20% off for people staying in hotel. Also entertainment in the bar. Many students from all over the world. Hotel in the very convenient location. You can walk everywhere.

I good choice for a single rider
I visited Edinburgh for a couple of days for a low-budget single getaway, and chose to use the cheapest hostel. I stayed in the largest dorm-room with a few other travelers from around the world. The hostel and the rooms were in a good shape, the linen were tidy and there wasn't too much noise at any time. The staff was super friendly and helpful and the breakfast was rather ok (toast, cereal, coffee) for the price of 2 pounds. The location is approximately 1 km to the centre so no complaints there either. The showers were also clean and there was hot water. The only weird thing was the wall plugs which were only in one spot in the room, and the visitors were advised to lease a key for one mobile phone box to keep the devices safe. So nothing major, just a bit of an shortage on that side. I really nice experience otherwise and I can definitely recommend it to other low-budget travelers.

Unclean cave in lovely Inverness
Extremely unclean in both rooms and the reception. I didn't take my shoes off during the whole stay. No toiletpaper, visible dirt on floor, bed placed randomly across the room, no card reader, no change for cash, very loud reception with music way too high (it was a friday evening though). I've done some budget travelling but this was easily the worst hostel I've seen.
