    Excelente hostal! La ubicación es céntrica. Casi todo el staff es español así que si no sabes inglés no hay problema! La cocina es amplia y muy bien equipada. Hay un servicio para guardar tu maleta mientras haces check in y el locker de la cama es muy amplio también.

    Nice bar and restaurant with affordable prices, pool table, common area, activities, pub crawls, cool atmosphere, excellent location. Price for a night is one of the cheapest in the city, naturally it goes up during weekends. Stayed at the 30 people shared room. Of course if you sleep with 30 persons it gets smelly, but they should at least install some air conditioning. Showers are a bit uncomfortable. Overall a good place and I would stay again.

    Muy buena ubicación; a pocos pasos de las calles principales, supermercados accesibles caminando y rodeado de bares. Bueno para quien viaja en grupo y le gusta la fiesta. Sin embargo, las camas eran muy incomodas; el colchón lleno de resortes, la almohada parecía como si no la hubiesen cambiado hace años, los "accesorios de cama" consisten en un único acolchado (además el cuarto es un poco frío) y no te dan toallas. Buena relación calidad-recio y buen ambiente.

    El Hostel esta muy bien situado y el personal es muy amable. La limpieza deja que desear y los baños y duchas son diminutos y el agua no sale caliente.

    Lo mejor de todo es la ubicación, a dos calles de la Royal Mile. El ambiente muy bien. Lo peor de todo las duchas! Son un horror. Son de esas de boton que tienes que darle una y otra vez y además sale el agua desde arriba y no puedes ni moverte pq son muy estrechas. Algo ruidoso en la calle si da a cowgate. Yo lo elegí por la ubicación

    El hostel cumplió con nuestras expectativas al llegar pero hubo dos cosas que nos complicaron un poco las vacaciones. Por un lado nuestra compañera de cuarto llego muy borracha y vomito toda la noche dentro del cuarto, pensamos en que nos iban a cambiar de cuarto pero nada de eso sucedió. Por otro, nuestra habitación daba a la calle y del otro lado había una obra que no nos dejaba dormir y nadie nos había avisado de la situación antes de llegar.
