"I was there for 1 night but would definitely go back. Staff were welcoming and the facilities good. The lockers were a good size and padlocks came supplied, and towels were freely available from reception (a nice touch). Perfect location - less than 5min walk from the station and similar distance to old town. Beds: VERY comfy. A little low and I had reservations about how 'on the floor' the bottom bunk was, but having slept really well on it, no complaints at all. The black out curtains were very good, rooms a good temp and the beds big. I would definitely recommend earplugs as noise carries from the communal area and the doors are impossible to close quietly. Showers: ok Kitchen: free tea, coffee and milk available for use. Plus essentials like oil and seasoning. Breakfast was bread (though personally prefer brown), eggs, jams/spreads, oats, cornflakes, rice crispies and cocopops. Sadly no wheatabix/similar non sweet option. One negative: no real communal area/louge for evening"

"This is definitely the best hostel that I have ever stay! Staff are amazing and very friendly, breakfast is simple but I can feel lots of love in it as the staff prepared it every morning. The place is tidy which I really appreciate it, the hostel is located in New Town and it took around 5 mins walk to Scott Monument so it is very convenient to go almost every main attractions in Edinburgh. Just want to thank all of the staff that gave me a wonderful trip in Edinburgh, I would like to stay in here again!"
