This place is a dump, and they lie. If you look online, and even here, the photos you see are NOT what you're getting at ALL. I traveled with a group and we were shoved in a small room with 6 sets of bunk beds, because for some reason, my school thought a backpacking hostel was a GREAT idea!! We...

Stayed one night in a four person dorm. Bed was comfy, sheets clean and luggage hold underneath bed was adequate but bring your own lock. No bin in the room which was odd. Staff in general were blunt and seemed preoccupied with other tasks as opposed to attending to guests. The location is undeniably good, so close to Waverley Bridge...

I stayed in a 10 bed room (girls only) and had absolutely no problem with my stay. The staff is very nice and always willing to help, the pub downstairs is a great choice if you don't wanna go too far but still wanna have a nice night. Super well located, right in front of the main train station of...

Of course, the hostel is not really recommended for people who want to spend some time to relax in the hotel or the...

A very clean and well located hostel. I stayed in a twin share room, best sleep I have had in 2 weeks. All the staff were bright and very helpful. Abbey and Skye in particular were both brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed the pub quiz with the ukulele. Thanks guys! I will definitely return and highly recommend it!

I visited this hostel in September for a weekend away with my friends. The staff were more than friendly and the room was up to standards. The staff informed us about the many attractions around and even helped us sign up for a bar crawl. The food served here was lovely and the the location of the hostel is very...

I stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. I paid 319 for 4 nights, a pokey double on the top floor, at one end of the room, it was so low, you would always bang your head, It was clean, as pokey a double as you get, with about enough room to close the door etc. I wasn't impressed with...

“4 bedroom ensuite highly recommended. Ask for room 45/46 which both have a good view over the city. Plus they are quieter with less noise.”
