    einfach nur spitze dieses Hostel - direkt am Grassmarket gelegen genügend Pubs in unmittelbarer Nähe. Directe Aussicht auf das Schloss und 10 Fußminuten zu Fuß bis ins Zentrum. Ideal für ein kurzztrip in Edinburgh von 1-7 Tage. Jeden Abend andere Aktionen vom Hostel - tolle Gemeinschaft- absolut zum weiterempfehlen.

    Schönes Hostel mit guter Lage im Zentrum. Alles ist zu Fuss erreichbar. Ausstattung ist okay. Im Zimmer fehlten mir persönlich ein paar Haken zum Jacke ö.ä. aufhängen. Wir hatten ein 2-Bett Zimmer. Preis war da schon etwas teuer, dafür, dass man nicht mal ein eigenes Bad hatte. In den Abend- und Nachtstunden konnte es schon etwas lauter werden, sowohl vor dem Hostel, als auch auf den Fluren. Leider war es nicht möglich Zimmertüren leise zu schließen. Nette und recht günstige Bar im Hostel.

    Wir haben zwei Nächte in einem 4-Bettzimmer geschlafen. Obwohl unser Zimmer direkt neben der Küche lag, hat man nichts gerochen. Die Rezeption und der Aufenthaltsraum/Bar sind sehr einladend und die Mitarbeiter waren sehr hilfsbereit. Zur Royal Mile ist man ca. 10 Minuten zu Fuß unterwegs gewesen. Es hat uns sehr gefallen!

    The hostel is in a very nice location, central and I guess overall I could recommend it! The room I stayed in got really hot during the night and it was kinda hard to balance the temperature (might not be their fault though) and the bathrooms weren't as clean as you'd wish (except after they were cleaned obv). The hostel is good if you wanna party as there's a bar in the common area downstairs which is nice. The beds were well equipped and staff was okay, not too overwhelmingly excited though.;)

    Some Staffmembers (especially Karolina) were really unfriendly. I didn't understood her at first and then she almost screamed at me. I really didn't wanted to ask her anything after that. Besides that, it is a really nice Hostel which I definetly would recommend. Especially for Harry Potter Fans. (Greyfriars Kirkyard is just 2 min away!)
