A wonderful experience ”

I went in Edinburgh with my friend for 2 days trip snd booked a private double room here. I was surprised to see that all the facilities were available, including plates or cutlery or anything you would ever need in everyday life !! It was certainly value for money . The staffs were friendly, room was clean & secured and there were 3 shared bathrooms in the apartment I lived ! It was wonderful.. the only things I didn't like is that there was no handwash in the toilet & the windows of the room could never be closed, even in the winter! Overall a very good experience & I would definitely recommend EH to anyone out there !

Backpacker's delight”

Location, convenience, price

Basically you're in college dorms. The beds are slightly uncomfortable. But it's close to the Royal Mile and lots of places to eat and drink along the North bridge area. To find this place there's two ways. The 1st is to go down North Bridge until you get to Chambers street. Take a right turn to Guthrie street, follow Guthrie to the Euro Hostel. Or from the Royal Mile, go around Tron Kirk to Blair street down to Cowgate. Turn right and follw Cowgate to Euro Hotel. To add further, if you're here for the Edinburgh fringe this is the place to stay. Surrounded by lots of venues and bars. There is a kitchen facility so you can save a bundle by cooking your own meals. Hope all this helps.

Great for a festival stay”

If you're coming for the Edinburgh Festival (International or Fringe), this is the place to stay. Inexpensive and right down the street from the Pleasance. Each suite has 3 toilets and two showers so mo waiting if you gotta go! Be aware as Cowgate and Pleasance have no convenience stores you will be in for a bit of a walk to find anything. Good luck on your stay.

Clean. Spacious. Relatively close to city area

Euro hostel was like a student's hostel. So the space available in there is something like what you can expect in a dorm. We had two single beds, a wardrobe and a table. The toilet is located just outside our room so it was very convenient. It was clean too. Other than a part where toilet couldn't be flushed down and we had to call reception, but they settled that part relatively quickly. It was about 10 mins walk from the train station and into the streets but it was worth the affordable stay. We just needed a bed to end our nights with and they were really good.

It's a good value for money and in the center of Edinburgh”

This should be rated as it is. A Hostel so you have the shared bathrooms simple bedspace things for a meager price point, but for that it is spot on good. It's right in the smack of old city. it's walking distance for food and attractions. The problem is it is right beside bars so you'll hear drunk people chantting around 3am.

budget stay”

the room (twin room) is small and there was just enough space for opening 2 20' luggage... it is close to old town but if you walk there from the rail station, it is just a nightmare... A lot of stairs going up and down (because of the irregular landscape of Edinburgh) so it is actually hard for you to walk with your luggage.

Too bad that are no towels in the rooms. The pillows are very very thin. It would not make any difference if you have them or not. But the staff was very very friendly in giving suggestions where to buy towels etc. for good price. Check in time at 3pm is way late and check out at 10.30 way too early.

Inflated price during the festival”

I had a private room with a shared bathroom. Room was old and clean-ish. Dents in the wall & loud at night, but earplugs fixed that. No mirror in the room. Rented a towel for 1 pound. The kitchen was huge. Restroom with the shower was not labelled, but once I found it is was hot with good pressure. WAY overpriced because of the festival, but it was the last bed in the city under 300 pounds, as best I could tell. THERE IS NO LIFT. So I carted 2 bags up 5 sets of stairs; however the girl at reception helped me and was super nice.

Dorms”

Best things: location is short walk to train station, private room, shared bathrooms clean

I was disappointed as ratings were so high I expected more. The beds boing when you shift. We stayed in 2 different rooms and the days were broken up by an out of town excursion. Both nights were difficult to sleep because there was constant door slamming very late and very early. Not exaggerating but 65 times there was squeak....slam! One of the nights was cheap enough to justify, but one was just too expensive for such nonsense to be going on. Also you must deposit 5 pounds per towel plus a 2 pound usage fee per towel. I didn't have that much on me so I didn't get one :( Had to use a sweater. I thought it would be like kinda fun to stay in a dorm for a couple of nights but it really wasn't due to the random hours of some others staying there. I am not actually hard to please. Just know these things if you stay there. It is a 1 or 0 star hotel. Have no idea how come it had such high satisfaction stars which is why I chose it. Also luggage storage is 2 pounds a bag which we used.
