Stayed here in a large group during edinburgh fringe festival but wished we had stayed in a bus shelter instead. The rooms are ridiculously cramped - enough sleeping space to sleep 8, however, only 3 could stand up in the tiny floor space at any one time!
The place was dirty and from our party of 16, 7 had bites all over them the next day!
Also, I booked this hostel and paid in full on my company debit card. I rarely use this card and this was the only place (including online) that my card had been used in the last 6 months. Two weeks later - my card showed unusual transactions totalling over £200 to a foreign agent. Fortunately, the bank refunded my money after the Police were informed. I'm legally obliged to say that i am in way suggesting that The Belford Hostel had anything to do with this fraud but I am suspicious of other people in the premises who may have somehow gleaned this information either from inside the premises or the bins outside?
Definitely do not stay here - it is hellish!
