Fantastic location, right in between the royal mile and grassmarket street where some great pubs are located. Easy ten min walk to Waverley Station for airlink buses.
The hostel itself was really big, bit confusing to get to the room at first! Big bar underneath which was packed and had a good atmosphere.
I stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm, which was actually split so once the door was closed it was only 4 beds which was perfect, good sized lockers as well. Only criticism I have is the service, I arrived and the girl at reception sent me to the wrong room and was not apologetic when I went to double check. Was given linen for the beds but had to strip the linen from the person before me, stayed in a lot of hostels and never had to get rid of someone else's linen before.
Overall though excellent location, rooms were clean and quiet and I'd probably stay here again for the location.
