yes, the huge noise due to the hotel bar just under the rooms....
Location and the bar The staff were not friendly. The room had an innapropriate magazine left in it from, i presume, the last occupant. The shower room did not have the soap dispenser filled (it was empty). The TV stations kept losing reception. T
this place is brand new, in heart of the old town and, modern, clean, and overall fantastic.
location there was weird smell in bathroom all the time....
Good bar, nice outdoor terrasse. Location of the hostel. Too much noice. Too hot in the rooms. Long waiting-time for checiking in.
Self catering facilities no free WIFI
budget hostel, good location, short walk from Royal Mile, clean room
Towels were changed daily. Shower and washroom are clean and comfortable. Great breakfast and simple but delicious dinner.
Centrally located, modern hotel. Great bar.

Nice hotel at the university of Edinburgh - relatively cheap, good location for either conferences or visiting Edinburgh in general, decent breakfast, friendly staff, paid internet at room available.
Clean, friendly, well situated The last night 2 drunken young men ran through the corridors at 3 am knocking on doors an shouting and singing
It was typical student accomodation but in quite a leafy location with great views of Arthur's Seat. Its a small point but there could have been more information about how to access the hall and at what end of the building the room was located. Other residents seem to have had the same problem.
The room is really clean, and the breakfast is nice. The hotel is located about 20min walk from the city centre (waveley train station, Edinburgh castle, etc), which is acceptable. Also there are several bus services to and from the city centre. It may take some time to first-time guests to find their rooms after getting keys from the main reception (maybe some more signs will be of great benefit).
Great breakfast with lots of choices - at times a little overcrowded, but I was only there at Festival time.Organisation/running of the buffet was excellent. I didnt like the card system for lifts, doors, inner and outer doors ... that was most annoying, and in addition had lots of problems with my card not swiping efficiently - had to return to reception several times - a time waster and you had to walk out in bad weather to get to reception --- I found that quite annoying; either get the system working well or return to good old fashioned keys!! The location was listed as a short walk from Waverley Railway Station ...this is totally incorrect and misleading ...its a very very long walk, and its uphill --- not easy or pleasant if you are dragging a suitcase!
Someone could have told us we needed to bring own sleeping bags and towels wasn't mention in your confirmation of booking
could feel the springs in the mattress on the bed.
We got there late at night and checked in at the Reception Center. Very easy. Rooms are basic dorm rooms. My husband thought the bed was too firm, I thought it was just right. We were a little worried about noise level, but there was no problem at all! Staff very friendly. Short walk to the Royal Mile. If you come out the main entrance and turn right, Arthur's Seat is just in front of you. Breakfast was a buffet and we had no problem finding something that we liked every morning. Pancakes go very fast. We will for sure use this hotel again! We thought we had read here that dinner was every night for 12 pounds but the one night we were too exhausted to eat out and came back, it was not open. It was Easter though so that might have been the reason. I would just check with the reception center on check-in to see if there are any night they are not serving dinner.
i had to check out in the early hours, and they had a packed lunch ready for me, great value.
The common kitchen area: it's inviting and well equiped. The 24 hr staff are very helpful and I liked that music streamed in through the open windows at night. Good place to sit and interact with other guests. The location makes all of Edinburgh very accessable. I had a top tier bunk, so two people slept below me and there wasn't much head space left. Shower and bathroom facilities are small and universally shared. Both of these are fine as long as you expect them coming in.
Locations is great, a bit hidden but in close to everything in city centre, and Waverly station. We only came back to sleep in the room for a few hours. Rabbies Tours cafe/bus stop. We only had contact with 2 staff members both spoke spanish, Eduardo and a young lady with dark hair. They were both helpful and accommodating with our luggage. Email response is also quick. Restrooms and showers were okay and clean. The sheets of the beds and cover had stains some dark black stains and small blood stains.
Nice showers and cleaned toilets. Good equiped kitchen for make by yourself dinner. Internet and wi-fi ( pay ). Customers and staff very educated, no noisy, very close to the central bus stop for the airport. Room too small for 4 beds and frozing.No chair,no bed lights, no lockers free, Matrass absolutly no-comfortable: only metals and not insulated with wool or cotton. Orrible sleeping. Why not to buy poliuretan matrass? Economic and easy to clean or change. Breakfast just with bread + margarin + marmelade, coffe/tea and some fruits. Too poor.
the fact that it was in the centre of edinburgh therre was no cooking equipment provided apart from a frying pan
To have the very simple room supplied by the kitchen facilities, including the possibility to have a "meeting place" with our companion travelers
very convenient location, within walking distance to most attractions. It has a communal kitchen which allowed us to prepare a meal. definitely for those on a budget Room was tiny, barely enough space for the 2 of us. can hear footsteps from people walking along the corridor. but given that the place was budget, its still good value for money.
Warm welcome, close to centre
A great mix of location, price and cleanliness. Not really! Only that they were closing in 2 days (for start of term as uni accommodation) so they didn't have much in terms of snacks etc. for sale.
Convenience of locatioin - right in the heart of the city Price was ok, but considering the standard and cleanliness of room (generally ok but sheets were stained) would have expected it to be about 20% less
Very friendly staff, good location
No cups in kitchen, and no replacement of towels or soap over 5 days
Near the High Street,
The staff were very helpful, welcoming and pro-active. And the location was amazing! Within minutes of most major fringe venues.
The bathroom is quite well lit and good The room is quite dim, and the price could be better
Nothing Very poor shower factilities, no locks on two doors, one shower not there , one shower no hot water
On the high street of Edinburgh . Too noise in the evening
Good kitchen Internet access is not free
bed ok toilet facilities poor, and not very tidy
1. Location: exactly on the royal mile. Easy to approach everywhere! 2. the plentiful information. 3. relatively clean kitchen. The shower n bathroom were clean but the shower was too small n wet floor. Noisy.....we woke up every morning with the cleaning car sound. N the bed was just fit to me, so for a tall guy it would be tiny. Also, always lock your room; the local robbery can visit inside. The hostel is toooooo easy to enter.
Its location is perfect for a weekend trip.
The thing I liked best during my stay at brodies was that most of the residents and staff at the hostel, were very feriendly The batthing facilities were in a very appalling state
meeting interesting people had to wait until 10 oclock until the beds we were allocated were made up
