stayed at the castle rock hostel for a weekend while visiting edinburgh. no regrets on choosing this one. the location was really great. just a couple minutes walk to the castle, royal mile, grassmarket; perfect for me since I was in the city for such a short stay (2 nights). the hostel is a 24-7 place, in that there are staff always on duty, which i liked (especially since my flight in was 3 hours late and i didn't arrive until super late).
the hostel itself is really cool. really big. it does in fact have a funky castle vibe to it. lots of fun decorations. lots of different communal places to chill out and lounge around.
i stayed in a mixed dorm; a big room full of bunk beds. but even though there were quite a few people in the room, there was plenty of space for everyone. personal lockers. personal safe boxes. everyone who was in my room was courteous and friendly. the rooms and bathrooms were spotless. showers were hot. and the staff was very helpful and friendly.
what more could you want? i wish i could've stayed longer.
