I arrived, was warmly welcomed, the Roch is a historic building, a old stone built, YWCA (Renovated) has a real relaxed , homey atmosphere and the staff, was great there was a BIG game between Scotland and England 60k fans the manager Smiling dude with flaming red hair gave me his tickets for 1/2 price (In Scotland that's considered "Giving"), My room looked up to the Edinburgh Castle, I am a amputee and everything night life, restaurants, stores, famous historic sites was/is in walking distance. Took a great bus/boat tour up to Loc Ness, Whiskey distilleries on the way back. Stayed 10 day's could have easily much longer made to feel like part of the family.

Stayed here during the fringe festival. Location was great. Rooms were spacious with each bed having its own power outlet. View of Castle from dorm room was great, although meant quite loud at night due to bars below. Still appeared to be under going renovation so the downstairs cafe was a building site. Only let down were the staff who were grumpy and unhelpful.

come prima volta in ostello non è stato male. Forse noi un po' troppo stagionati per una camerata con altri 15 sconosciuti ma se si è in cerca di un posto pulito ed economico in cui poter dormire in Edimburgo direi che questa è la soluzione ideale. L'ostello dispone anche di camere doppie o quadruple, ma avendo prenotato all'ultimo istante ci siamo accontentati. Per il resto pulizia ed ordine fanno da sovrani. Colazione inclusa nel prezzo.

O hostel é bastante escuro e deixa a desejar na decoração, porém a localização é uma das melhores de Edimburgo, perto de diversos pontos turísticos, como o Castelo e também perto de vários bons restaurantes. Mas confesso que em minha estadia não me senti de fato segura neste hostel, que tinha pouca iluminação e calefação que deixou a desejar.

É um hostel bem razoável, talvez porque fechei um shared room com muitas pessoas também. O banheiro também é dividido, como se fosse um vestiário. O melhor do hostel é a área de lazer, com bar, sinuca e video-game. Tem boa localização, e a área da recepção é bem confortável também.
