    Staff were quite helpful. Although it’s an old building, everything is clean especially showers and toilets. The lounge is so tasteful and gives you chances to make new friends;)

    The kitchen was ever so slightly dirty, but ti be fair, I presume it’s about people who are staying. Great value for money in total;)

    The breakfast was decent for 2 GBP, but the real value is the location of the place! Tons of people hanging out in the common room gave this place a great vibe.

    Comfortable beds, a very nice common room and a large shared kitchen. Everyone was friendly and tips for interesting activities were almost daily posted in the lobby. The location was fantastic!

    The street bellow can get noisy on weekends.

    Location is absolutely perfect, in the heart of the old town Edinburgh, walking distance to all must see attractions! Friendly and helpful staffs at 24/7 reception, who are also promptly responsive on email inquiries. Bed linnet and duvet included. USB phone charging by bed and bed lamp. Private locker.

    Had an unpleasant small issue on getting back the key-deposit, as the key-deposit didn't follow "automatically" as I moved to another bed in another room. Smell in the room: open windows for fresh air helped.
