If you want to get ripped off and sleep in a sauna with shoebox-sized lockers, then be my guest. Having stayed in Edinburgh for over a month, I can assure you there are a number of hostels with better service, accomodation, and location for a smaller price. In addition, they will charge you 5 pounds for late arrivals and make sure you make your own bed. As I write this, I'm lying in a pool of sweat, in a bed that's too short and nowhere to put my stuff. This place is utterly worthless. Save some money and try Safestay or Kickass Grassmarket instead.
The kitchen is way too small (not even all the people of 1 room can fit in, and there is more than 6 rooms !). I was only here for 1 night, so I couldn't see all the options of this hostel, but having a usable kitchen is very important to me. The only advantages I found for this hostel are the price and the location.
Did not like this place, signs everywhere reminding you of the rules. No heart to the place. No storage making it a nightmare, in a fire it would awful. There are lots of good hostel in Edinburgh, just avoid this one.
There must be an infestation because I saw several without even looking. All the staff could do was refund my reservation which left me looking for a place to stay at 10pm. They were nonchalant about the whole thing: very unsettling. At least I got out fast and have hopefully avoided spreading the contamination.
The hostel is located right across the Haymarket station, which is not near Edinburgh Waverley station (30 min walking distance). They provide thin sheets but other bedding (pillow cover, duvet cover) remains the same from the previous user and I don't know how often they wash them. No bed pads. Free wifi is provided in your bedroom and there are outlets beside your bunk bed so on the top of the bunk bed you can still use the outlet. Lights are also beside your bed. The bunk bed is triple, not double and you cannot get up without banging your head. Breakfast (tea, coffee, toast) costs £3.
