The hostel is incredibly well located, just a few steps away from the Royal Mile (the big promenade that links the Edinburgh Castle with the Hollyrood Palace), so the location couldn't be better.
The problem there was the dirty. There were always trash and leftovers all over the hostel, the bathrooms had a terrible aspect and the room smelled unbelievably! The carpet was disgusting, the duvets and pillows smelled like swet and there was absolutelly no air circulation. I don't recommend it, except if you don't mind about staying in a really dirty place.
