This accom position is near the city centre. No hardship to walk everywhere you wanna travel in Edinburgh. Clean bathroom, clean kitchen(sharing for all guests), especially loved wide room enough to stay for a group. You can also get the closest supermarket on foot in five minutes. I really enjoyed to stay at this accom.

Very nice accommodations with cute themes for each room. I stayed in the Russian room and had the beds configured to a full grande. The bed was very comfortable. Had a TV in the room. The bathroom is off of the "French cottage " and was clean and modern. Couldn't get the shower to stay at a consistent temperature, but it was ok. There is construction happening across the street, so during the week you will definitely here notice. There were also some very loud birds that squawked all nice. If you are a sound sleeper it wont bother you.

Pros - perfect location within walking distance of main sites Nicely decorated with good sized room and own shower room. Cons - minor only with a slight food smell in the bedroom, possibly from previous guest but room was clean. Other minor con was that towels had a damp smell. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a nice place to stay in a great location for a good value.

Pros: easy self check in and check out procedure, got shared kitchen and living room to use, bed is very comfort with large bathroom, looks clean and luxury. Cons: location not so easy to find, at behind lane, with limited lights,quiet walking at night and a bit far from main train station. Room and bathroom door is heavy. Anyway, it still a pleasent short stay experience and worth to recommend!!

The location was great but you can hear absolutely everything the people above us was doing, (even going to the bathroom). The floor cracks when people walk. It kept waking us up during the night. Also some of the bed sheets were dirty and the shower head was dirty as well.

Bathroom not in room. You had to go out of your room to walk to your bathroom each time you wanted to use. Tricky in the night as other guests out of their rooms and becomes embarrassing. Room tiny. Place in creepy lane way. Felt a little unsafe. Very expensive for what you get.

Prima kamer met 4 goede bedden en een eigen badkamer. Het enige minpuntje was een van de 4 matrassen, maar de eigenaresse gaf direct aan dat ze dat matras gaat vervangen. In de gemeenschappelijke keuken is een koelkast, oven, magnetron en fornuis waar je gebruik van kunt maken. Maar bij The Square om de hoek kun je ook prima ontbijten.
