The apartment was marvelous and far exceeded our expectations. The apartment was very clean, had all the modern amenities and was well located for attending the Fringe Festival. The owners were extremely helpful and attentive -- they even ran to the store to get some clothes for my 83-year old father when the airlines misplaced our luggage.
Our stay at the Cloudberry Apartment was great. It was children friendly as a cot was provided and the apartment was on the ground floor so it was easy to wheel the pram and the suitcases in and out. It was very clean and the kitchen had everything in it and it was great preparing our lunches for our day trips into the city. We walked to the Royal Mile and got the bus back - it dropped us off just outside the apartment. Thanks to Natalie who was a very welcoming host!!

The hostel was quite central and especially close to the main bus station where I arrived in the morning. I could leave my luggage for two entire days there and got breakfast offered twice although I only booked one night. The stuff was really friendly and the atmosphere was very nice and familiar.
Myself and two other girl-friends had the pleasure to stay here for one night, and we were very sad to leave! The place is clean and safe, in a good location to walk downtown, and its just bursting with character. The woman who runs it is SO nice and helpful, as soon as we got there she sat and chatted with us and gave us a map of the city, and then wrote all over it pointing out helpful places. If you are a group of girls I would HIGHLY, HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend this place!!! It was just a really cool feel. It felt like "home" when we finally came looking for our beds after a long day of walking through the city.

Was amazed with the quality here. A nice and homely place, friendly staff, great lounge and kitchen. Dorms were not too big, good beds, excellent cleanliness and fine toilet and shower facilities. If you want a home from home this is it.
Very nice facilities and homely atmosphere. Everything was clean and it felt like you were in a home rather than in a hostel. And the price was very reasonable. And the fact that you shouldn't wear shoes inside!

Cosy and clean, friendly staff and several common rooms with a cheerful and friendly atmosphere. We enjoyed the cheap breakfast buffe and the location close to the castle on a street with some nie restaurants very close. Comfortable beds and quiet at night.
The themed rooms had great character, the location was perfect (Edinburgh castle on your doorstep), amazing building. I felt at home here.

It was clean and the kitchen facilities good. Having two kitchens really reduces the dinner time congestion. There was always enough space to cook. I liked having an all girls room. The carpets in the room reduced the noise of people going in and out. In the living room the sofas are normal and comfortable and a decent TV.
The hostel is in a quiet location, easily found and a direct walk from the centre.

The location is great. I really liked the fireplace in the common area. The room was spacious enough and the staff was very friendly.
This hostel is the best hostel I have tried in Scotland and Edinburgh. The most important reason is that it are two sockets for each bed-- much better than the others.

Spacious enough for 6 of us to stay very comfortably, clean, full compliment of kitchen equipment etc. everything you could need for the weekend. very happy.
Really impressed. Clean, comfortable and good value for money. Parking space was a bonus. The sort of place you don't want to leave, because you feel so settled there.

This place was a great last minute find. ideally located for the train station Haymarket is just 5 mins round the corner. Very cheap for the service received this included free wifi. Lots of hot running water in the showers and free shower gel !!!! All the staff I met were awesome Thank You !!!
This was the first time I've stayed in a hostel and I must say I was pleasantly surprised. The place looks like it's recently had a refurb as everything looks new and clean. The Staff are polite and helpful and know a lot about the local area.

Very inexpensive, with helpful staff. Luggage storage is available for 1 pound in secure lockers.
Budget Backpackers was the best hostel I have been in so far in the UK. It was bright with fun decor, the staff were incredible, there was food/drinks from their bar that was actually considerate of backpackers' budgets, they had great common areas and free pub crawls (in affordable and cool pubs/club that were also close to the hostel, so you always felt safe making your way home). And unreal prices for a bed!

This is seriously one of the best (if not THE best) hostels I've ever stayed at. The staff were super friendly and helpful, the atmosphere was great... full kitchen that I barely used but was nice. Very good security system, and it's really nice that they allow guests to come and hang out with you in the lounge (though they obviously aren't allowed in the rooms with you).
Nice big rooms, daily cleaned by the people who lives there for years! (great teams), big lockers in the room, comfortable and cosy common area, great meal deal for breakfast and supertasty evening cuisine provided by a professional cook. I met amazing people who stayed in the hostel for a year or so. Some of them works as a maintenance or receptionists and that`s a great idea ever because I feel like living with friends from the first moment.
