It was my second time staying at this hostel and I'm sure I will stay here also the next time.
The hostel is really well located and you can basically reach most of the hotspots by foot. I also felt very safe walking in the...More

I stayed 4 nights and I cannot complain. My 6 bed room was quiet and usually clean. Bathrooms were clean and, although they seemed too few for the available beds, I never had to wait to use toilets or showers.
Not so great: showers are...More

Thank you for the great feedback . We are so pleased you found our facilities clean. Sorry we do not have an elevator as we are located in a very old historic building and unable to install one. Thankfully our hostel only has 2 levels...More
Decent rooms, friendly staff and good facilities. Wi-Fi was average and the 6-8 mixed dorms had a tendency to end up as mostly male (during my time there at least), which may turn off some solo female travellers. The location was stellar and the sister-hostel...More

I've stayed in this hostel 4 times over the last 4 years. I used to love it here but the last 2 times I've visited its gone way down hill. The cleanliness is horrible (bathrooms and dorms were filthy) the reception staff just weren't as...More

Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

Hi there. The bathrooms we have are as follows. Some of our bathrooms are mixed gender , what this means is that the sinks areas are the the only sections that are mixed and shared. The Showers areas are Private pods that have a shower area and a changing area in front that are completely private. The toilets are also private cubicles. We also have a couple of Male only and female only Bathrooms in our hostel that are specifically single sex. These bathrooms have showers that have privacy shower screen and curtains and of course the toilets are completely private cubicles also. We hope this explains our bathroom set up for you . We hope you decide to book with us. BB Crew :)
