The hostel is superb! The location is perfect (central, exceptional view). Small flaws: the toilets are closed in the middle of the day, the cleaning staff are extremely noisy even if some occupants were sleeping.

Really amazing hostel

This hostel is really huge with several lounges, kitchens ... But it is still very friendly where life is good! I really loved to spend my evenings there reading in the living room, playing guitar or billiards ... In addition there are plenty of parties organized where you can meet people and if you want to stay only it's totally possible too !!

Too much phew.

I had a very nice stay in this warm and more than comfortable hostel. Activities organized every night from Monday to Saturday can meet other travelers, in short I recommend 100%!

Magnificent !

Very nice hostel, very well located (literally at the foot of the castle), a minute walk from the Royal Mile, and all, really cheap! Good atmosphere, there are activities offered almost every night, the staff is approachable and lovely, and the places are clean! Everything is in a medieval style, almost castle for the entry, then each room / dormitory to his theme, I love it! I booked a girls room, and although we were 12, everything was clean, quiet and respectful, frankly I'm delighted! I recommend with eyes closed!
