A great place for the festival

The location of the hostel is superb; because it's just off the lower half of the Royal Mile it meant I could get into the daily mix of the Fringe every day if I wanted, but it also meant I could avoid the Mile entirely if I didn't fancy getting crushed! Staff were always polite and helpful including instances of (a) helping an American work his card after four failed attempts, (b) helping me out when I was locked out of the room twice (my fault, both times) and generally just asking 'how are you?' when people passed in and out of the place. Security was also really good, because I arrived early they let me leave my luggage in the secure rooms downstairs, and then every room had its own locker. You'll need to bring your own padlock or purchase one at the hostel though (about £3 either way for a decent one). One of the greatest other things was booking through STA and getting B&B - if you don't get the breakfast option you can still buy it on the day £5, but going through STA was much better value. I had haggis every day except the last - but then I had to leave an hour before the kitchen opened - but again no problems with the staff; even tired as I was the guy manning the dawn watch on reception was awake enough to crack jokes and take care of everything I needed for a quick escape! All in all a really great place, and judging by the various groups that passed through I'd say suitable for nearly everyone (as long as you don't mind a little noise).

I am not sure if they were supposed to do this or not, but it was my first time out of London and I was by myself, so I was put into a six bedroom room by myself. I enjoy meeting new people but I enjoyed getting a room and bathroom all to myself. I could have done without the creepy guy in the luggage room, possibly going through my bag, when I was just coming to pick it up. I know it was my decision to leave it there and to trust whomever, but I did not appreciate that.

Das Hostel war in bester Lage, war sauber und es waren eher kleine Zimmer für ein Hostel. Man konnte am Abreisetag seine Koffer noch unterstellen.

I was only there for one night and had to leave early the next morning. It was very clean and spacious and there was plenty of space to lock your belongings while you were out.

This hostel is so secure! Lights in the hallway come on when you exit your room or enter the floor! The location is great for all things in Edinburgh, it has all the right facilities and there are so many things to do close by. The hostel is clean and staff are friendly.
