The room were too small and dirty
Bathroom, carpet, bunk beds
The location for good access to airport transport.
It was a lot smaller than it looked on the pictures. The matress looked like a surgeon had been operating on it and there was no lighting/PowerPoint at the bed ,as advertised.
The toilet and shower were not enough for the amount of people on the floor. Toilet wasnt clean all the time. The beds were too low and you end up hitting your always which is very painful.
Part of the staff was nice. I was able to print my boarding pass for 20 p.
The worst hostel I've ever been to. Two showers and two toilets for a bunch of rooms with more than 20 people. At 11 pm they not only close the lounge (which means the only place to stay if you don't wish to sleep yet, is a minimum hall (literally)) but they also close the kitchen. So you cannot get anything from the fridge or get a cup of water if you wish. No place to keep your stuff safe. Just in the middle of the room. The springs of the matress keep sticking on your body no matter how much you try to find a good position. One night the plugs and lights in the room we're not working and since there was nobody to ask for help, I had to wait till the next morning till the guy could fix it and I could charge my cellphone. A lady came at nine to clean the room while some of us were still sleeping, making terrible noises with her keys hanging from her neck. And she even stepped on my pillow when she was getting down the upper bed. Absolutely uncomfortable, really poor maintenance. Hideous.
A stay at The Hostel places you in the heart of Edinburgh, within a 10-minute walk of Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) and Princes Street. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, luggage storage, and laundry facilities.
