Great Hostel.
I can't praise this hostel enough. They clean the rooms every day, everyone is as friendly as can be, both the staff and the guests. I was a tiny bit leert of the pods when I first heard about them but they were more comfortable than the beds at my last hostel and provide a great deal more privacy. I was very impressed and I would consider them next time I'm in Edinburgh.

4/10 Fair

The room was quiet as I stayed in an all girl's room but it was very cold. I also don't know how often they change the sheets and blankets. they should have male and female separate toilets.
