    El hostal no puede tener mejor ubicación, me quedé en habitación femenina y teníamos vista directa al castillo de Edimburgo, además se podía llegar caminando a todas partes y en un par de minutos a las calles principales de la ciudad. La infraestructura y limpieza del lugar estaban muy bien, pero se debe tener en consideración que los baños son mixtos, ya que estos no están en las habitaciones sino en el pasillo, aún así todo es muy privado y no genera ningún inconveniente. La única desventaja es que no cue

    El alojamiento me encantó. Las habitaciones son grandes, cómodas y los lockers funcionaban ok. La seguridad de la tarjeta para ingresar es genial. Lo único que no me gusto de los cuartos es que había poca ventilación. Los baños ok. Limpios y bien organizados. La gente de la recepción…algunos bien otros más serios y mala onda . Pero en general bien.

    Muy bueno todo en general, el personal SÚPER amables, todo se veía limpio y se veía a gente de personal de limpieza, las camas muy bien y las vistas increíbles. Solo el agua de las duchas un poco frías lo cual lo manifestamos una noche que también la habitación estaba muy fría pero el personal muy amable nos llevó más abrigo pero entiendo que el problema no se solucionó. Tampoco funcionaban los secadores de pelo. Pero en si todo correcto me sentí muy a gusto la localización muy muy buena.
