I loved this hostel. My friend and I stayed here for two nights this past March (2008), and had a blast. The staff were extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. We met lots of great people, and the whole place had a fun, relaxed vibe to it. We stayed in a 4 bed room, and it was spacious, and the beds were comfortable and clean. The bathrooms were small, but very clean. And for about 8 pounds a night, you can't go wrong. I plan on staying here next time I'm in Edinburgh, and I've told all my friends who plan on visiting to stay here. Great hostel, great people, great price. This place helped make my stay awesome!
