Liked: Fast & Furious, everyone appeared to be having a good time meeting, greeting etc. It was very busy but in a positive way, staff helpful, food good, near bus stop into Edinburgh. Great place for walking.

Disliked: Bed was squeaky, first night a bit uncomfortable solved the problem by putting the spare blanket under sheet on top of mattress.

Liked: Absolutely fantastic place this. Within 15 mins walk of the centre of Edinburgh you have an extremely cheap, high quality, reliable, friendly, great atmosphere, virtually unlimited capacity hotel. Would not consider staying anywhere else in Edinburgh now! Even the staff were extremely friendly. The whole feel of the place is so much nicer than a hotel, and oh so much cheaper. Perfect place to stay.

Disliked: John left no negative feedback.

Disliked: Not much really. The price is reasonable and facility in the room is pretty basic but really good and clean enough.
