Score from 654 reviews Very good
Clean accommodation with lockers, shower and toilet in room. Also a little table with chairs, bed light and power points to charge mobile phones, etc.
There were no towels, so bring your own!
Ideal location and good links to public transport. Staff very polite, friendly and helpful. Clean and tidy
Pillows too flat
Breakfast very well priced and filling. Accommodation clean and staff friendly & helpful. shower excellent.
Bed not to my liking but that's a personal thing.
Accommodation, staff, booking, location and food all great.
Great place to stay. Unfortunately the stay was spoiled somewhat by rugby supporters from the University (Cardiff I think) shouting and banging on doors at three o'clock in the morning Saturday and Sunday . No respect for other hostel users at all. Perhaps some signs could be put up asking people to respect other users after a certain time in the evening.
The location was good and the room was warm. Shower was great not just a trickle that you can't wash under.
Cost Central Cleanliness Very friendly helpful staff
Reception of staff & the environment
No one is perfect, but all is ok
Staff who took an interest in where we were going for the day out. Being greeted warmly on return
Food was second rate. Continental breakfast was poor. Cheese curled up. Rolls bashed! Toaster poor. Not enough fresh fruit.
the location was good. The hostel is near the city center and there are a lot of shps and restaurants.
The bed was very uncomfortable and very small. the TV was tiny.
The room is quite big.
The bed is a bit old.
wifi is not free
The kitchen and the common area. And staff member Daniel Berger was very nice to us.
The mattresses The Wi-Fi barely worked For a stay of 10 days, bed sheets, room nor towels were ever cleaned.
very noisy when you sleep at night， parties， thansport sounds made us suffer and I had nightmare that night！
Hostel is right 5 minutes walk from train station
Staff are incredibly unhelpful. Rooms are v basic but are fairly clean. Towels have to be paid for and are £2 each. Some hotels in edinburgh are actually cheaper than the hostel and you get a lot more for your money. We usually stay at hotels on leith walk however as it was new years everything was sold out. My advice would be to look elsewhere first however if there is nothing else, this hostel will do!
The location and value for money
Booking.com system didnt update the hotel correctly i was asked to pay 129 and id already paid 110.00 to booking.com i had to prove id paid already. The room had a funny smell to it
-It's relatively close to the city centre and the tram and bus stops are a few minutes away -The staff was SUPER friendly and helpful -Great option for a short stay in the city
-The bed was uncomfortable because of the "pillow" so I didn't get adequate sleep
I stayed in a 6 female dorm. The room was clean and big enough. And my roommates are friendly as well.
close to city centre, clean and spacious room, helpful staff, lockers available
far too noisy
The staffs were very helpful.
The wifi internet though paid is not working properly inside the room.
The wifi doesn't work properly.. And network is poor either..
The price is reasonable and the place is 15 minutes from railway station.
The bathroom is small,and the water pours out accidently. It should be fixed. I book one bedroom and they gave me with two beds in one room that makes me surprised.
Comfort offered by en-suited room much appreciated
Bit more signage & clear location points would have helped 'spatial awareness'...lost lift a couple of times!
Good showers Good beds Friendly staff Good bar Nice seats at bar and reception
Ventilation lacking (aside from opening the window) You have to pay for locks on the closet in the room, I find it silly.
I have stayed in the Edinburgh Central Hostel previously and will always make a point of staying there on any future trips to Edinburgh. The staff are always helpful and friendly and the facilities are consistently of a high level and offer excellent value for money.
The cooked breakfast is a little too generous for my taste.
