The location was great and the staff were very helpful. There was a simple breakfast of toast and cereal but that was sufficient.
You need to walk up three flights of stairs so if you have big luggage you need to carry it up. Also I thought the beds would have curtains on them and they did not.
In the heart of Edinburgh!
Rooms are small
It's very central and near to station and market area. Receptionist was very kind and helpful. She did book tour for me and guided me to visit places.
Needs some maintenance work and better display of location to find place - like signboard on street etc.
Only 1 working toilet (men).
The hostel is located very centrally, the staff is very kind and the atmosphere is lovely!
The building looks a bit sketchy from outside, but as soon as you enter the hostel on the 3rd floor, all doubts are gone.
