    Nous étions peut être un peu âgés pour cette expérience en dortoir (+50 ans). Toutefois c'était rigolo. Si nous n'avions pas été près de la porte qui grinçait et claquait à chaque passage cela aurait été top. L'emplacement est idéal dans le vieux Edinburgh et le personnel nickel.

    No kitchen available, so impossible to make food on our own so I had to eat outside, which was not the initial plan. Dormitory with to much people, a lot of noise during the night, from the street and from the people coming back at 4am completly drunk ! 30 beds : 2 toilets (1 really disgusting !), 2 showers (1 broken), 3 sinks (1 broken and 1 not working well). Up at 7:30 in the morning, the bathroom is not cleaned because the staff did not work yet in this area .. Hostel good to NOT sleep and !
