not recommend.
they have unisex facilities there (i.e. all gender share the same toilet and shower room). no 24-hour reception (means.. we go something wrong with the access card in the morning at 7am. we can't get it back to the room until 8am when reception counter open again). no breakfast included.

Never Ever Stay Here
We came to Scotland as part of our honeymoon. When we arrived we were given threadbare sheets and pillowcases to make our beds. We went into the dorm room and found two beds to make them. We we returned that night and one our beds was taken. Apparently the one bed that was made was being used by another person and there were not enough beds for both us. Which is weird since we booked two beds. The staff was entirely useless. About 30 minutes later we were told that a bed was found and stripped. Unfortunately, they stripped our one bed and we had to remake it. I was then moved to a female dorm room as there was no room for me to stay in the same room as my new husband. We then moved went on a two day bus trip and returned to the hostel a night later to finish our trip in Scotland. We encountered the same exact issue and was moved into a different room (fortunately together this time). The showers were broken in the bathroom by us and the other bathroom was deemed female only because of a field trip or something. The wifi never worked, the staff was extremely unorganized, and nothing was done to try to make up for their lack of professionalism. It was horrible. DO NOT STAY HERE.

Well located and good value for money.
Excellent location, decent atmosphere, average but comfortable beds. Literally opposite Haymarket train station and on all major bus routes, including tram, buses to the airport and Glasgow. Lack of power sockets in the rooms "for your safety" was insulting. WiFi was terrible due to their rubbish Draytek routers, but internet connection is fast if you manage to get past the WiFi (e.g. using a cable). Their sister hostel (West End Hotel) uses the same broken equipment so don't go to either if you need reliable internet. Showers were good, kitchen small but had everything you need, and the staff were great as well.
