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 cosy interior and the fact that they had loads of shampoos or beauty left overs that you could use if needed. The fact that the bed came with linen of its own.

The hostel is excellent. A big locker for every single one. Very good location (quite close that you can walk to the castle and royal mile) with bus stop just outside of the hostel (the bus routes are thru princes st and royal mile, so is easy to get to the hostel from coach or train station). Extremely clean, free breakfast and a kitchen with everything. Quite, so is good for people like me that are not looking for a party hostel but one that you can spend time in the lounge to meet some new friends and talk to each other for hours and hours. Staffs are extremely friendly, helpful; they and the hostel together would give you a home-like feeling.

The room themes were whimsical and fun, there was SO much space, multiple power outlets for every bunk and enough space to get the actual adapters in, clean linen changed each day, armchairs and space in the centre of the rooms, clean bathrooms, great common room, cheap water behind the desk. The free pub crawl on Thursday night was also amazing!

I stayed here for a 1 night visit for a conference at Murrayfield stadium. The location is good for both city centre, airport and close to Murrayfield and Edinburgh Zoo. Rooms are clean and comfortable and staff go out of their way to help you. I was pleased at the discount you get at the bar for food and drinks as the food was amazing. I stayed in an 18 bed dorm which I don't normally stay in big rooms but this one is not cramped and there is allot of space to keep your things. I will recommend the hostel to anyone travelling through Edinburgh.
