Ok exept for the shower boiling, then freezing, then boiling.
maid coming in the shower to clean the others while taking mine, with no respect for intimity.
Value for money, comfortable mattress
Kitchen was closed (and locked) when I left early in the morning so no chance of making myself a cup of coffee to start the day and I had to leave some food because I could not get to it.
it's clean, just bit noise, cause face to the main road.
only the location was good
the room was too small to accommodate 24 people. The room was smelly and too noisy (the windows did not have a great isolation) The bathroom was not that clean, water was cold on the first floor. Total lack of shampoo and bath gel. The dorm door was not closed properly and anybody could enter also without the key.
The location was ok and close to the castle and other interesting sights The staff were usually friendly and polite but not always handy. Thhe rooms very small but compared to the price I payed it was reasonable
Breakfast. There was little room in the fridge to store food. It was always crowded and I couldn't find room enough to cook in the kitchen. There were not enough clean toilets most of the time and the showers were usually busy and with no soap.
A stay at The Hostel places you in the heart of Edinburgh, within a 10-minute walk of Edinburgh International Conference Centre (EICC) and Princes Street. Featured amenities include complimentary wired Internet access, luggage storage, and laundry facilities.
