Brought a group of students to take part in the Fringe Festival, and couldn't have been closer to the heart of things. This was great for getting around the city, both to sight see and to and from various theatre venues, but not so great in the wee hours of the morning when bar traffic was in and out of the courtyard all night.
Hostel itself was quite comfortable and clean. I was lucky enough to sometimes latch onto the free wi-fi signal from my room, but most could not unless they were in the bar or courtyard. Good service in the bar downstairs for drinks; food was decent. Given the large size of my group, front desk was very accommodating for lost keys and great for directions.
