Shared a five bed roomed flat with four friends. Pleasant reception staff, clean but basic accomodation. Easy walk to the castle for the Tattoo and to fringe venues. Expensive for student accommodation but great value compared with hotels during the Fringe and has the option of self catering to keep the costs down.

Stayed: August 2015, travelled with friends

These are student flats during term time and it shows, the carpets are often stained and the management have to work hard to keep it looking acceptable for those with higher standards (most of us!) However, it is a good location and and offers rooms with a toilet-cum-shower, small kitchen and sleeping area. Although advertised as a 'double' the bed is a very small double and would only serve the purpose on occasion (or if a student were to get lucky!!!), the matress was cheap, springy and disappointing. Paying a premium price during the Edinburgh festival, you get towels but no soap, which seems a bit mean.

Room Tip: try to get a room on the side away from the road - lots of delivery vehicles around 6am!

Classic single room with Ikea type furniture suitable for students & easily replaced. Access card let me in off the street, then lift up to 1st floor (Room 108C). Long corridor with 108 a few doors down, card lets you into short corridor with doors A-B-C-D. Card opens door C into room. End of short corridor leads to communal kitchen for the 4 rooms. No room service of any kind. Good location between Grassmarket & Louriston Road/Place. Great Turkish Café near for sit in or take away, good service from the girls.

Staff were fantastic! Location was good but the room was dirty, very small and the bed was awful! Very narrow, lumpy and not clean.
Perhaps some coffee/tea/milk sachets would have been welcoming. It was not good value and I certainly would not recommend it.

Room Tip: Just really avoid the property

When you're after a good location and all the mod cons during Fringe then look no further! It's 5 mins walk to Bristo Square or Grassmarket, around the corner from a Sainsbury's and my room even had a view of the castle! As student accommodation, the studio had everything I needed (fridge, cooker, microwave, laundry facilities) without having to pay for all the frills of a serviced apartment. The staff were super friendly and helpful, and the free wifi was a real bonus. There's no TV in the room, but with so much to see and do outside, I didn't miss it for a second.

Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the street side for great views of the castle!
