Stayed here twice within a week (left and came back to Edinburgh). Both stays had a private double room with ensuite.
First stay had a room on top floor (5th). Very cramped with angled ceiling (you would not want to be 6' or over!), and the elevator only goes to the 4th floor so you have to take the stairs at the end (probably quicker than the elevator anyway).
Second stay had a room on the 4th floor. Much better room, more spacious and easier to get into.
Rooms were very clean, and good value. Continental breakfast is free, and you can get cheap hot breakfasts too (just show your room card). Free wifi available in the bars on the ground floor.
The best thing about this place is the location. It is close to everything central, including the castle, parks etc, and is literally across the road from the rail station. We stayed when the Xmas festival was on in the central park area and got a GREAT view from our rooms.
Quite difficult to find a really close off-licence, however the bar provides very well so really there is no need.
Overall a good backpacker catch, and like most hostels, if you have a little extra cash the private room is probably worth it.
