Perfect Castle Hostel, Can’t be even better”

Good location, it’s just next to castle. It’s nice to see the castle from the window. The bed is clean and comfy, bathroom is clean and separate for females and males. The kitchen has everything there and you can cook whatever you want. The common area is awesome like a cafe, they even have a cinema room but so sad I don’t have time for it. The staff is helpful and the tour is good.

Hostel was huge with many different rooms to chill, do work and meet new people. It is cozy and comfortable, and the staff are helpful too. The hostel provides a room to store luggage, and also provides free coffee and hot chocolate. Hostel is located in the middle of Edinburgh as well, making it convenient to travel and visit Edinburgh. Thank you for the amazing stay for the past 3 days :-)

The best hostel in my life”

Friendly staff, great location right in front of victoria street and edinburgh castle. Beds and sheets were very clean. The rooms had a lot of space even in 12 person room, it was so comfortable. They also have an amazing dining room where you can cook or drink tea or coffee (provided in the room). We definitely recommend it!!

highly recommend”

Nestled underneath the famous Edinburgh Castle the views alone make staying here worth it.. not only that but it's really convenient location for all the top attractions in Edinburgh. More importantly the staff are super friendly, so helpful and just so welcoming. The hostel itself has loads of added bonuses such as a cinema room, lounges, a kitchen... my stay here for a week couldn't have gone better I slept so well and just really enjoyed my stay. Definitely value for money and would happily stay here again in the future.
