Hot!
The room and the whole floor was really hot: high nineties. The window in the room barely opened. It took hours to cool off to where we could sleep. Also for $95 I think it is kind of cheap to charge for a towel, but the heat was the real issue.

Very mixed
Close to the royal mile, the location is not bad atall. The place is a university student hostel, which should not ring warning bells - but it seems that maintenance, looking after damage to the property, or trying to run the place properly for visitors is not part of the "Destiny" plan. On the plus side, my room was quiet, and the heat problem that plagued upper levels was not an issue for me (I was on the ground floor). The studio unit had the basics (a couple of plates, cups, knives and forks, a pot, a frying pan). The room was huge, if mostly empty. The location is good too. The negatives: The overall property is dirty and unkept. The rooms were not very clean, and the "limited servicing" actually means none while you are there (I was there a week). You can hire a towel, but there are no tea-towels to dry your dishes, no kettle, and no toaster. The room was not ready at the advertised check-in time, which was very disappointing after 36 hours of travel. I think the idea is that you should stay for a couple of days only - it is not intended for longer stays.

Cheap but still not great value
Check in was very slow despite coming back later as requested. Studio was missing a kettle and any pans (not much use booking a studio without them). Shower flooded the studio right out to the corridor on first day (this was later fixed). Lights were temperamental and bed was uncomfortable. The room was cheap and we were expecting basic but so many things were wrong I wouldn’t bother again. Probably fine for 1 night but not the 4 we stayed. Location was handy though.
