I spent two nights here over the weekend and found it clean, comfy and ideally situated within walking distance of everywhere I wanted to go.
The staff were really helpful and sorted me out with bus timetables and city maps.
I didn't have breakfast there as, when I went down at 9.30, the breakfast room was deserted and I didn't feel like sitting on my own. I headed left down Leith Walk instead and have a lovely breakfast at the Word of Mouth cafe.
The only thing that prevented me giving it five stars was that it seemed to lack the buzzing vibe I've found at other hostels but maybe I just wasn't around at the right times.
