    Fantastisches Hostel mit nettem Personal und viel Freizeitangeboten. Lage am Fuße des Castle atemberaubend. Gute Anbindung an die Altstadt. Hostel und Ausstattung sehr neuwertig und Duschen zahlreich verfügbar, plus guter Sauberkeit. Bar bietet flüssige und feste Verpflegung, auch Frühstück, aber alles (!) kostet extra, da private Bar. Schließfächer im Zimmer bieten ausreichend Platz für kleinen Koffer und weiteres. Tolle Zeit gehabt!

    Wie immer super. Der Frauendorm ist super schön und man hat einen Blick auf das Schloss. Die Mitarbeiter sind sehr nett und das vegetarische Frühstück ist super! Ich hab bei einem Upgrade auf ein Doppelzimmer sogar das Zimmer für den Preis eines Dorms bekommen, einfach so “ist ja Weihnachten”. Total nett! Das einzige was man bemängeln könnte, sind halt wirklich nur die Duschen. Man kann die Temperatur nicht einstellen und man verbrennt sich da öfters gerne mal.🙈

    Das Hostel ist gut gelegen und falls man vor dem Check In eintrifft kann man seine Sachen in einem dafür vorgesehen Raum lagern. Es gibt eine Bar in der man auch etwas essen kann. An den Betten befindet sich jeweils eine Lampe und eine Steckdose sowie 2 USB Anschlüsse. Die Toiletten leider etwas schmutzig, was aber auch daran gelegen haben kann, dass viele feiern waren und danach nicht mehr gerade aus gucken konnten.

    Sehr gut

    Tolle Lage direkt am Grasmarked. Ausstattung gut und einigermaßen sauber. Mitarbeiter teilweise sehr kleinlich. Beim kleinsten Verstoß z.b wegen der Lautstärke im Zimmer gibt es keine Kaution mehr zurück. Die Höhe war als man uns auch noch unterstellt hat wir wären ein Jungesellenabschied und müssten eigentlich noch mehr Kaution bezahlen die wir nicht mehr zurück bekommen.

    We have booked a private 6-person-dorm. Due to the fact that we are two mothers with 3 minors, we have been kicked out. Although we understand the legislation in Scotland, it would have been most convenient if we would have had the chance to receive a clearer information about this.
