OK for price
The location is convenient for the city. The room was fairly clean though not much space. Lockers quite small. Beds were three tall and quite shaky but comfortable enough. It was fine for the cheap price paid.

A quiet little treasure!
Excellent place, friendly and super clean and quiet. The best find in Edinburgh! I would recommend it to friends, and definitely look forward to staying there again. Well done, and thank you!

Bad business decision: 3 bed stacking up
The staff, the service, the environment, the funny activities, everything is perfect ---- but except the beds. I stayed at the hotel a few months ago, and recently, when I re-visit this hotel, those beds are changed. They were, in the past, two beds stacked; however, now they make 3 stacked together, which is very uncomfortable. We can not even "sit on the bed". The vertical distance between your bed and the upper bed is so narrow. Yes, we can not even sit on it. Every bad change. In the past, I would like to give the hotel a 5/5. However, the "comfortableness" now only worth a 1/5

Fair 4.0
Greedy management
Way too many beds rammed into the room. Bathroom was filthy. Only toilet for men was upstairs while women had several. Kitchen utensils and pans were all old and scorched.
