I stayed here a couple of months ago. This hostel can't have a better location! My first impression when entering the hostel was that it was very small, but that just means that bathroom and kitchen are not far from the dorms, so it is...More

thanks for the lovely review - we hope to see you here again some time!
Maybe not fancy but this place is clean, comfortable and is in a great location. You can't beat it for ease of access to the train station, royal mile and other city sights. As long as you are not too fussy, this place is great.

This hostel was a pleasant place to stay in. The distance to the city centre and to all sights was not big, we walked everywhere; the centre of Edinburgh seems bigger than it actually is. The first time we almost missed it, it is nicely...More

Definitely one of the better hostels I've stayed in. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the bathrooms are clean as well. The staff are good. Breakfast is good. Basic kitchen facilities. No issues.
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.
