Beautiful Hostel
Surrounded by other beautiful landmarks of Edinburgh, this hostel does not slack off to compete. The deco was nicely done and the you can see lots of artistic touch to make sure you have a true Scottish experience. The people working there were friendly and helpful, and sometime offer you some free shots as well.

Does the job in a good location
Bring earplugs and eyeshades. Busy place. Reasonably clean wash room and showers, did not have to wait. Kitchen adequately equipped but storage is tight, especially in fridges. Clean enough cooking and eating area. Security is good with 24 reception, locks on dorm doors that work, and included lockers that will hold a 48 liter pack. Free movies in the evenings.

One of the Best!
Very hard to find any fault with this great hostel. I arrived in the city without a prior booking and checked out 3 others beforehand, but the terrific location beside the castle and warm welcome won me over straight away. The social areas and kitchen are very spacious and there is also a cinema. Breakfast is basic but only ST1.50 and probably as much as you need to get you on your way. WiFi seemed a little slow at times but that's my only quibble. A quality experience ...

Home away from home
We stayed in the female only dorm and it was an amazing experience. The staff was very friendly, there was a lot of common area space, the facilities were clean, and we never worried about our stuff. Great location as well. Wifi was iffy, but eh. Would definitely stay here again.

Great vibe
Liked -- Location was fantastic. Staff was friendly and helpful. Dorm rooms had enough outlets for all to charge electronics. Disliked -- the wifi gets really bogged down and sketchy with a full crowd (in fairness, August is a crazy busy time). Wifi did not reach dorm rooms upstairs. I would definitely recommend.

12 bed female dorm
Well,You can't expect too much for a 12 bed female bed dorm. Good -- There is locker for you to keep your valuable item. I like the bathroom, its design is very considerate. Location is great, just next to the Edinburgh Castle, it is good for you to stay here if you are going to join the local tour to highland organised by Timberbush. As the pick up point is at the entrance of the castle which is just a few minutes from the hostel. Bad -- It is weird that all the sockets are at the corner of the room, it is very inconvenient to charge my mobile at night. Overall, everything is fine.
