At 2 am we were woken by a drunken guy urinating outside our door. He then proceeded by trying to get into our room and we had to scream at him to make him go away. The urine then leaked under the door, forming a puddle on our floor. Fortunately, the staff hadn't left for the night and we got help mopping it up, and were then given a towel to put on the floor and a can of air freshener!
After that incident we eventually managed to fall asleep again, only to be awaken two hours later by a drunken bunch of lads running back and forth in the hallway and slamming the doors. We didn't get much sleep that night and checked out earlier than planned the next morning. Needless to say, this experience ruined a big part of our stay in Edinburgh.
Our en suite double room was tiny, but the bed was comfortable (though I found hair on the pillow). The bathroom smelt as moldy as a castle dungeon and there was pubic hair in the shower. You couldn't sit on the toilet without jamming your leg onto the wall. Location was great though and staff was friendly, though they did seem a bit blasé.
My boyfriend and I aren't fussy, but this place was a total dump. A true party joint – probably heaven for 18 year olds that have never been away from home before and only want a roof above their heads. If you're after more than that, it's possible to get a much more decent 2 star hotel or B&B for just a few pounds more.
