As a Luxury Hotel Reviewer, I walked into the Edinburgh Central Hostel not quite knowing what to expect. It's fair to say I was well and truly out of my comfort zone.

With fresh eyes and low expectations, I was very pleasantly surprised at the standard of accommodation on offer: you can book a single room, a family room, a dormitory for eight and there's also three rooms equipped with disabled access.

The hostel is cleverly housed in a former office building so all of the rooms are uniform in size depending on which category they are in. I was also impressed by the layout and the privacy afforded when staying in a shared room. There's a locker for every bed, separate WC and separate Shower room. The rooms are spotlessly clean and mostly furnished with pine beds and school-like furniture.

The location is very central at the top of Leith Walk and a few minutes from the West End. For somewhere that houses so many people ( up to almost 300) it was remarkably quiet.

Downstairs, in the self-catering kitchen, I noticed top-of-the-range Dualit toasters alongside spotlessly clean stainless steel surfaces. There's individual cubby holes and shared cubby holes and a range of recycling bins. Premium rooms have Freeview TV, DVD's and tea and coffee making facilities.

If you don't feel like self-catering, there's full dining facilities, a bistro and variety of restaurants and cafes on the doorstep.

After visiting Edinburgh Central Hostel, I might just be persuaded to change my Five-Star ways!
