Awesome - great environment, highly recommend
Huge hostel right next to Edinburgh Castle. Being staffed by people who are staying there, so they have interest in keeping it clean and operating well. Very flexible with requests. Other guests are friendly, and there are multiple lounges if you want quiet time or to be social. Nightly events are fun. Kitchen is large and has most of what you need. Only two minor issues is that during peak times, refrigerator and bathroom space can get a bit crowded. If I were to visit Edinburgh again, I would definitely stay here; highly recommend.
