Liked: Good basic, comfortable room. Kettle and tea bags in room was nice touch. Shared bathroom and toilet were both clean. Plenty of choice for breakfast, from fried breakfast to fruit. Looks out onto Arthur's Seat and about 20 mins walk to Royal Mile. Staff were very helpful when checking in.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: Cleen bathrooms, and there was a disposable bathmat so my feet did not get dirty, and the floor did not get so wet.

Disliked: The bed was hard and a bit uncomfortable. Because it was a saturday night people outside was partying. I don't like noise.

Liked: The breakfast was absolutely fantastic - a full self service buffet with every hot and cold item you could possiby wish for. You would have to stay a whole week to be able to take full advantage of all the options. Soap and shower gel were provided. There was a lovely view of Arthur's Seat.

Disliked: The room was very basic and not particularly inviting. The bed was a standard single. I don't like the duvet covers that don't do up at the end so the duvet starts to slide out in the night. It was perfectly adequate but just wasn't as nice as the other Edinburgh student accommodation I booked through hostel bookers last year.

Liked: Reasonably priced accommodation for single travellers. Not in walking distance from train station, you'll need to hop on bus. Ride is about 5 min away. Buses sometimes infrequent. But overall not too shabby.

Disliked: Rooms typical uni dorms- little old looking and lacking character.
