Stayed here in Edinburgh for a night, with my dad, in a double bedroom with a private bathroom. Absolutely loved it! It was really cold at this time, but the entire hostel was nice and warm at all times, including my room and the bathroom....More

Super clean, the rooms are very comfortable and spacious. The location is perfect, really close to everything. It's a top accommodation in Edimburgh to visit the city with a great value for money and comfort.

Great place to stay. Room very basic but clean and bunk beds were comfortable. The hostel is in the heart of old town Edinburgh. Brilliant breakfast for the price and evening meals were also very good.

Old Town
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its
