Liked: It is close to Author seat, and walking distance to the central city. Very friendly staff are always there to help. Breakfast is very good and lots of choices you can get plus location etc, very good value.I used to work there when i was a student at the Edinburgh University. I think this is the main reason i chose it during my stay. Wonderful experience. great to back to school days!!!

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

Liked: Breakfast was absolutely fantastic. This is the second time i stayed here. the first time i was in a second floor room overlooking the local golf course....very nice and quiet room. This stay i had a first floor room near the dining room which was a little noisy. Otherwise very comfortable stay.

27 June 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: For the price I paid for my single room, I felt that was a bargain because of the warm reception, the prepared bedroom fitted with a small kettle, toiletries and clean bedding received. I was pleasantly surprised by the breakfast that provided much assortment for all tastes. I would say that if you're a traveller looking to use this hostel only for bed and breakfast then this is hostel gets the five stars. But be aware of the noise level such as banging doors when your head's about to hit the pillow.
