Liked: It is located in the centre of the city. Very easy to get to wherever you want. It has a nice clientele and feels very family-friendly.

Disliked: It was very noisy with all the traffic running past our window! I woke up all the time and slept rather poorly. Ear-plugs recommended. Also I would not recommend the breakfast, as it was very meagre.

Liked: the cleanliness of the hostel is fantastic from the bedroom to the kitchen. it is not too far from the few attractions in Edinburgh too, about 12 mins walk to Carlton Hill and another 5 mins to the city centre. they have late check out service too.

Disliked: everything was fine. except the fact that the luggage storage facilities is not very considerate as it is based on an hourly rate, not free.
