4/10 Fair

It's a unique concept but wish the property was more well cared for and that they don't cram that many people in the space. It feels a bit like a slum. Twelve people, six bunk beds are a lot for such a tight space. The room smells. And bathroom + kitchen + common space get so overused that it seems to be always dirty

Great place to stay during the fringe
By far the cheapest place to stay in Edinburgh during the fringe! Obviously it’s not the most luxurious place in the world but it was a friendly atmosphere and the facilities were perfectly fine. Free parking in Edinburgh was also a big bonus.

Does a good job for the Fringe
Cheap, easy and great for the fringe. Really nice staff. It is out of the city so you have to get a cab or bus but that was fine

Best experience of my life
The outside of the hostel looks a wee bit sketchy. Once inside your perception will change. The people and staff were very welcoming. Containers hostel was quite the experience. Many could say it is a hidden gem.
