We came as a group and ended up in different smelly rooms. Ventilation and cleaning are poor. The kitchen is poorly equipped and mainly full of dirty dishes and pans. Staff not helpful

Check in wasn’t smooth, they tried to charge us to much, the guy on reception was really nice but he was confused about the booking!! Eventually about half an hour later it was all sorted. The location is perfect walking distance of everywhere in Edinburgh. I stayed in a 16 person mixed dorm. Beds weren’t great, I got a rash on my skin, I just hope it was the washing powder  bathroom facilities were clean and tidy.
We were woken in the middle of the night to hear someone upstairs vacuuming at 3am!! Annoying.

We stayed at Art Roch hostel for three nights in a private ensuite room. The room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. The ensuite was small but adequate. Unfortunately the lift was not working so we had to lug our bags up the stairs but it was being fixed during our stay. The staff were very friendly and offered us many helpful tips. The hostel is perfectly located and close to all major attractions. Breakfast is available at the pub across the road from 9:00am but we did not go as we often wanted breakfast before then. However, it does get very noisy at night with lots of other guests getting back in the early hours of the morning. A great party hostel if that is what you are looking for during your stay in Edinburgh with many pubs lining the Grassmarket!

My friends and I stayed here for one night in an 8 bed female ensuite dorm. Overall, the room was very clean (and funky- great decorations!) and the beds were comfortable. We all slept very well. Our train arrived early one morning and left late the next night, and the staff was very willing to let us leave our luggage in a locked, supervised room behind the counter. Was only about a 10 minute (depending on traffic) walk from the train station, and right up the street from the Royal Mile and the Castle. Would definitely recommend.
