Excellent4.0 / 5
Good location for a low budget hostel experience.
I expected a hostel experience, and that's what we got. There were three of us for a triple room, but only two beds, one big. The windows opened to a loud and smoky terrace, so no fresh air. Because of the Fringe festival, the room cost as much as a fancy hotel for the three of us. If I have a choice, I would not stay again, but then again, maybe I'm just too old to appreciate the hostel experience. The food in the cafeteria was good, though and breakfasts a good deal. The location was central. They need more staff at the front desk...

Great hostel, nice rooms
It is a great hostel in Edinburgh. It is on the pricier end of hostels, so it is quite a nice place. The staff at the reception and at the bar were really nice. I stayed at the 4 person shared room. The shower was quite nice and worked well. The bed was comfy. The location is about 10 min walking distance from the Edinburgh castle and two minutes walk away from the street. There are some party beer gardens around (walk towards Grassmarket), but no grocery stores. The only bad thing was the bar - filled mainly with drunk guys and went quite late, so it kept waking us up, even though we were on the 5th floor.
