Poor 2.0
terrible place. worse mattress, no air!!!!!
We wanted to stay 3 nights, in the end we stayed only 2, and even that was to much. I was with my son, we've asked for separated beds and they had no way of helping us, not even giving us an additional mattress. They were very unhelpful and didn't offer any solution. We've bought a Yoga mattress for my son to sleep on, while I was sleeping on the bed, which also was very unpleasant since the bed was impossible to sleep on. Another serious problem was that there was no way of ventilating the room, because you can't open the window and there was neither a fan nor an air-conditioner in the room, so the hot air in the room and in the corridors simply stands still, a great way to catch a disease. Most of the staff was empathetic to our problem, but none of them was able, or really tried to help us find a solution. This place functions during the year as a campus accommodation. As a parent, I would have never let my children stay there, as it is just not fit for living. After 2 nights we've managed to find another hotel. Do not come near this place!!!

Great place within walking distance from the town, the studio kitchen was really helpful and just what we needed for our trip.

It is what it is.
Very clean and basic accommodation at a reasonable price, at a time when Edinburgh is very expensive. Shower is super......take your own towels. Lots of facilities close by.
