Good 6.0
Great for location
I booked a private room. It was very small and bed was hard pillows too. It was noisy but doable. The shared bathroom is coed with two showers and three sinks. No amenities and for the price I paid I would not recommend.

Great location in Old Town with comfy beds
Great location and the facilities are clean & spacious. Decor is not as modern or hip as other places but I prefer it’s laid back charm. Guests kept to themselves a bit, but that may be just when I happened to be there.

This was exactly what you would expect from a hostel. It does the trick and has an amazing location!

Edinburgh jewel
Hostel staff are lovely and good people! The room had everything I needed, comfy bed. Only thing that could have made it better was if the window opened for some fresh air as it was a little warm but it is Scotland so not like that’s a common occurrence. I’d gladly stay again.
