      Great location. 24H reception is definitely an advantage. Shared roomsare comfortable and clean enough -- considering their very low cost.My room, floor 1, was beside a pub or the café and music annoyed meuntil 3 am. Empty shower gel.La música del pub contiguo o la cafetería del hostel incordia, al menos en la planta 1, hasta las 3 de la mañana. Gel de ducha vacío.

      Very central location, but also quiet. Friendly & big restaurant/bar.Large, comfortable beds & mattresses. Clean rooms (discounting thecarpets),. Sufficient variety at the buffet breakfast to keep yousatisfied for 3-4 days.1.The telephone number in Booking.com is wrong, I can't get in throughwith them. It waste a lot time for me to find them. So badexperience for me to walk along cold streets in dark Edinburgh, justtry to find them.2.The facilities in room are so simple: no Teapot & Cups(especially water heater), no TV, no hair dryer. 3.The wall and floor is too thin that I can hear neighber talking. In the mid-night, there is a poor guy knock each door just to find his room. Wonder why the receipt counter did not give him enough help. What a terrible night!!

      1. The hotel present quiet near the Royal Mile (High Street) allowed us not to be spending money on transportation to city center.2. In the dorm rooms it was a good experience to meet new and random people.3. Compared to other hotels and hostels, the prices were pretty cheap as well.4. The Bar with the pool tables was a good place to pass some extra time.1. The dorm rooms were equipped with only one one toilet. Which got a bit difficult to manage with 7 people staying in the room.

      It's near the train station. It would only take you 10 min to walk.Maybe cheap in Edinburgh, but compared the room we booked in London(just £37/day, including breakfast), the price is not good enough(£34/day, without breakfast).The shower in the double bedroom could use a curtain or some kind of barrier to separate it from the rest of the bathroom, water just kept spilling all over the place.

      This hostel was comfortable, great location, quite reasonably priced,and had comfortable beds. Toilet and shower were also good.Soap dispenser in one room empty. Heating in another room not working,staff unable to fix it (we were offered a change of room, though). Tv inquadruple room not working. Having to transfer from one room type toanother, when our group was reduced in numbers, we were initially toldwe would need to pack everything by 10 am, leave our luggage in thestorage room, and then come back at 1pm to unpack everything again inthe new room. This was despite the fact that all bookings had been madesimultaneously, under the same name, and we had made it clear in writingthat we would very much like to avoid this sort of hassle. After havingto negotiate and plead again at the reception desk, logic prevailed.

      This is the third time I've stayed at the smart city in Edinburgh, it's by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. It's clean, secure and perfect for location.Unfortunately it didn't appear as if our dorm was ever cleaned, evenwhen people had checked out. Also, it would have been better if wificould be accessed in the dorms.

      It was close to the station, clean, and good. Really cannot say anythingbad! The hostel changed the bed linen very often so I felt really clean,and bathroom was ok. Good access to the station, friendly staffs, andit is just few minutes away from all important tourist points, so reallygood for city tour!有一位女前台,态度相当不好,让人不满。
