This hostel is in a prime position and has views of nearby Edinburgh Castle from the windows. The hostel is run by a friendly team of international staff who know the city well and are only too pleased to give guests advice on the best places to see. There's a great chill-out room, an ideal place to socialize, and also a café/bar. It may not be in the 'kick ass' category, but it's not a bad option for backpackers.

This hostel was in a great location. It also had a really nice view from my female dorm. I was a little bit disappointed that the showers worked on a timer and it was really annoying having to keep turning it back on after it shut off. Other than that the staff was really friendly and helped me come up with a great little itinerary to explore Edinburgh.

If you are looking for work here in Edinburgh and have cultural and more internalised beliefs, then please beware of fascists and management both cultural is the understatement here either to losing your personality is while carrying on for work and disadvantages! I request that there council have strategic planning to protect either workers, in other words if Scotland loses a free-labour market coming out from EU so is proportional to polarisation of UK bourgeois getting richer! On the other side ethnic minorities and to those who carry internalised beliefs, unfortunately there are no civil rights here!

Had a weird harassment run-in with a homeless guy while staying here (he got kicked out and staff were nice about it) but otherwise the place was awesome and it was an awesome and social hostel overall. Guy who runs the bar upstairs is a gem.
