Cheap and does the job
Was cheap and decent, staff seemed a little clueless at times but comfortable standard hostel.

Great place to stay during the fringe
By far the cheapest place to stay in Edinburgh during the fringe! Obviously it’s not the most luxurious place in the world but it was a friendly atmosphere and the facilities were perfectly fine. Free parking in Edinburgh was also a big bonus.

Does a good job for the Fringe
Cheap, easy and great for the fringe. Really nice staff. It is out of the city so you have to get a cab or bus but that was fine
