Liked: This was exactly like being back at university halls! It was clean enough, the kitchen had almost everything you need and to keep you going throughout the festival season. There was only one shower for about 4 double rooms so it was a bit busy at times. It was a pleasent 10minute walk from the main festival activities and accross the street is some very nice places to eat. Tesco is also just 500m up the road.

Disliked: Very much like being back at uni! Partying people crashing in the early hours of the morning, but if you come expecting nothing more than university student accomodation you wont be disapointed. A little on the expensive side for what you get but then it is Edinburgh during the Fringe!

Liked: Overall the lay out of the flats was good. Fairly clean.

Disliked: Of the infantry, there was quite a few things which were not provided: 1) Games room 2) Television room 3) Lifts - I was on the second floor - not easy lifting a heavy case up several flights 4) There were no washing machines or laundry service as mentioned 5) Common room 6) To top it all toilet rolls weren't replaced or bins emptied all the while I was there.
