Great Hospitable Staff”

Staff is very gentle, hospitable and above all very respectful. While I lost my credit cards, they allowed me to make a call to my bank in Pakistan for the blocking of those cards. Very helpful people. Regards, Altamash Qaisrani

Epic hostel!”

I’ve stayed in a few hostels before, and this is one of the best value for money! Free WiFi & laundry, hot showers, great location and super friendly staff. The beds are comfy but the only downside was no kitchen to cook your own food. Apart from that, it was exactly what was needed :) Thanks for having me!

a very recomended place to stay, a hostel with a lift ”

The ocation just beside twaverley station, 2 min from royal mile,5 min from edinburgh castel, and the fare also good for a solo traveler like me. Room is organized nicely, bathroom is very clran, the staff is very helpfull, and you it has lift, so need to drag your heavy lugage through the painful stairs. I will stay here longer if I visit Edinburgh.
