“ok, nothing special”
Reviewed 7 February 2008

This hostel was clean, but not cheap, and we were told we had a double room, only to be given a 2 bed room - there is a difference! The kitchen facilities were good, as was the cafe/bar, but all in all very basic accommodation quite far from the centre of Edinburgh.

Reviewed 25 July 2005

This hostel is an amazing bargain. It has a great location in the Old City, walking distance to the Royal Mile and the Castle and only 10min from the New City.

Paid only £20 a night and this is excellent for a secure single room. The room was clean and so was the bathroom. Not sure if this is standard but my "pod" (containing about 5 rooms) also had a kitchen which looked pretty clean.

Edinburgh is a great place and this is a great place to stay when visiting. Would definitely use it again.
