    Super hostel, personnel jeune, super sympa et accueillant. Cuisine très fonctionnelle et toujours très propre (avec pain en libre service tous les matins). Salles communes très sympas. Très bon rapport qualité prix, une des auberges les moins chères d'Édimbourg. Je recommande fortement pour les backpackers ou même pour les séjours longue durée.

    The location is great we are near to everything. However, my room was in the separate building as the main one, thus I met no one since the other apartment with who i was sharing the facilities with was empty. I didn't get to enjoy the atmosphere of the main building. For the price my room was great and the facilities were clean. The only negative points are the heating which wasn't working in my room and the fact that the hostels doesn't have breakfast (has a partnership with a coffee shop)

    A nice place, close to the main attractions. The kitchen and the bathrooms are cleaned and people are friendly. Unfortunatly it's noisy in the morning, even in the single rooms.

    AJ bien située en centre ville historique pour un prix raisonnable pour la ville. Le personnel est accueillant et agréable. L’isolation phonique est vraiment spartiate, ce qui fait qu’on entend les fêtards qui traînent dans la ruelle adjacente à la rue cockburn (sur laquelle donne certaines chambres). Les salles de bains sont censées être dédiés à certaines chambres, mais dans les faits , celle dédiée à notre chambre était quasiment toujours occupée par des personnes d’un dortoir.

    C'était très sale et il n'y avais aucune insonorisation. On entendait tous les bruits dans la rue et dans le bâtiment. Les bruits ont duré toute la nuit jusqu'au petit matin. Impossible de dormir.
