Location mainly, Staff very nice
Lack of management at night . There were noisy groups partying and no management od that took płace . I rang the front desk several times after midnight but there was no answer.
This is a budget hostel, so it would be unfair to expect a five star hotel. And for the price I thought it was excellent. The location is perfect, the room clean and perfectly adequate with a nice en-suite shower room. The staff were super friendly and helpful - I left my Kindle behind somehow and they had kept it safe for me when I went to ask if they had seen it. There is a lift, which helped me as I had a hip problem at the time, and there is a storage room where you can leave your luggage before or after you check in/out. If you want you can pay for a secure locker, but the room is only occessed by means of a key for residents only.
The hostel is quite noisy with young people being a bit exuberant in the early hours, but this was not a great problem for me as I can sleep like a log anywhere. The room was small for three, with no chairs or TV but again that didn't bother me as I was there on my own (my friends couldn't come after all). It was also a bit cold, but once under the duvet, that was fine.
The location of the hostel is perfect for exploring Edinburgh. All the major sightseeing highlights are within walking distance. Also there's an abundance of restaurants and bars in the area if you're up for a meal or a drink in town. The facilites are clean and at a reasonable standard.
The staff of the hostel wasn't particularly friendly or welcoming. It also took multiple requests to have things done in several cases.
I liked the beds. The curtains are a good idea. The rungs of the ladder have a square cross-section. A square cross-section means a flat surface to step on, which is far more comfortable than a round one. The mattress was comfortable. No innerspring mattresses in this hostel. The toilet and the shower are separated from one another.
I missed a place to hang my jacket. Space was available. No ventilation in the shower and the toilet, only a few hooks to hang your towel instead of a bar, separated taps for hot and cold water (a plug for the sink was at hand, however), a locker would have been nice, not a single electrical socket in the room.
It's central location, relatively comfortable, bar kitchen and big screen all good
Kitchen needs things like oven gloves for taking things out of oven. Tea towels fir drying dishes. One night was disturbed by another guests noise, little reception did/could do?
A stay at Safestay Edinburgh Royal Mile places you in the heart of Edinburgh, steps from Royal Mile and Princes Street. Featured amenities include a computer station, express check-in, and express check-out.
