Sleeping in a museum of fine arts, you're tempted?

I can only say good! Beautiful environment stormed by artists who decorated it to wish! Affordable price ... Staff, really friendly and open !!!! I do not see any flaws! Only the regret of not being stopped any longer m'immlupine it is not more beautiful experience in hostel!

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!

hostel very well located at the foot of Edinbourgh Castle. Streets very sloping for access, especially through the passages (close) with stairs. Do not have any problems to move, moreover the hostel is not accessible to people to mobilize

Very well located, but be careful it goes up!

The most perfect hostel I've ever been! I was traveling with my parents and a bit worried if they would mind staying in a hostel, which is a bit informal sometimes. But they simply loved it. The decoration, the friendliness of the staff, the facilities, even our room in the last floor though we had some luggage. Great stay!!

Loved staying at Castle Rock. The staff were so friendly and on the door 24 hours so no worries if you need help at any time. Daily suggestions of what's good to do in the city as well as some entertainment for stayers. Party atmosphere available, but if it's not your thing there are heaps of spaces to relax. Would stay again

The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful at all times. I had a major issue with my mattress, it was so thin I woke up in a LOT of pain every day. After the second night, I reported it and asked for a second mattress. Turns out my mattress was so thin they had to throw it away!

The location is really cool, right opposite the castle, and it is set up to look a bit castle-like with a knight's costume set up in the corridor. All the rooms have a theme as well with the beds named after the theme. There is a locker under the bed with an additional "safe" compartment

Castle Rock was an excellent hostel, the location is great especially if you are visiting for the fringe festival. There is a large kitchen with a number of fridges so there is plenty of room for your food. The rooms are all very well kept and the beds are clean and comfortable, I was staying in a 16 bed dorm however the rooms are set up to still allow you some privacy which was great. The showers and bathrooms are regularly cleaned and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Castle Rock is definitely one of the best hostels I have stayed in.

The hostel is very well located and we loved its athmosphere. It has different common areas, some to chill out and some to socialise. There are also some activities organised within the hostel (language exchange, games..). The views from the dinning room are amazing, it was very pleasant chilling out there with a coffee! I would deffinitely recommend it!
