The lcoation of this hostel is great! It is exactly in High Street, and the area is surrounded with tourism attractions, souvenirs shops, eateries, cafes. The Edinburgh Castle and Palace of Holyrood is just a 20 minutes walking distance, alongside the Royal Mile. The shopping district is just a stones away nearby North Bridge, and again just 10-15 minutes walking, also to the Edinburgh Train Station and Edinburgh Bus Station.
Great location for the price we pay.
Nevertheless, a hostel remains a hostel. I stayed in a 8 beds female dorm. The room is so-so, bed is ok, locker works while, the only bad thing is the carpet in the room smell bad. They shouldn't put a carpet there. The bathroom is fine and clean enough, it is only 2 bathrooms and 2 toilets for female. They provide kitchen for guests also a small living room. Wi-fi works only in the kitchen.
They have a sister hostel, just opposite their location, High Street Hostel, which is a bigger and cozier.
The staff are great, friendly and helpful.
