I spent three amazing nights in this nice hostel with my friends at the end of October and I enjoyed it very much. This was my first stay in a hostel and I did not expect to find a so familiar, youth and cleaned place! Upon our arrival Linda gave us many tips about the highlights of Edinburgh, a fantastic city. Thank you so much for your help! Our room had purple walls and was on third floor,the best position to sleep peacefully away from the noise . Each bed has a locker to keep safe your stuff and there is also a washbasin with a mirror upon it. I met a lot of nice people during our breakfast time that is a simple one but rich in essential things such as coffee,milk,cereals and different kind of fruit juice and you can enjoy it from 7 to 10 am. The kitchen is very well equipped. The wifi is free of charge and is a very good connection available even in the room. The hostel is situated in a perfect position where in ten minutes walking you can reach the city center and be surprised by the beauty of Edinburgh. The light house hostel provides you a very comfortable stay and a chance to meet day by day many interesting people from all over the world leaving a part of yourself in the heart of Scotland. Super recommended!

I only spent two days in Edinburgh, the city is cool and the hostel very very cool too! Impressively Clean, with a comfy lounge room, not so far from the best attractions (it depends on what you want to visit, but 15-25 min by foot). A 5 stars hostel, also because it has the most friendly staff ever :)

Very good hostel, nice price. It is a big house, and they give you this liberty, for example open kitchen and also a nice waiting room with a television, some songs and even a guitar for playing.
Good localization, 10-15 by foot from the castle and really close to the bus station that can take you to any where in the city.

Probably the cleanest hostel I have EVER stayed in. Very helpful, chilled out staff. A bit of a quiet in terms of socialising with other guests but it could have just been the time we were there. Highly recommended if you're lookng for reasonably-priced, clean, quiet accomodation

Lovely folks, lovely place, all the amenities you could ask for and a safe place to sleep. All for cheap in a great Edinburgh location. You also get access to a nice kitchen, free tea and coffee, a chilled out living room with the option to watch millions of films on the projector and get online for free! I'm sold :D
