Liked: Absolutely incredible location, right next to Edinburgh castle. Comfortable mattresses, cool atmosphere. Very big hostel but good signage. Showers were warm and had good pressure. My flight was delayed and I ended up getting there around 3am, staff was still very friendly and I had no problem coming in so late.

Disliked: £1 for a towel, but expected from a hostel
