    Brian Canada September 2013 (Trip Advisor)

  • "I love budget backpackers :) They're a beautiful bunch of cooky, crazy, lovely human beings who maintain an excellent atmosphere, both calm and boisterously relevant. They are a community minded hostel, being both generous and forgiving to the new guest, as well as accommodating and sly with those guests who seemed to have stayed a bit longer than expected. A shining star of loveliness with a broad international community in the heart of Edinburgh."
    Chris USA September 2013 (Hostel World)

  • "Very nice and affordable place to stay and great location. We stayed two girls for 2 nights and enjoyed it.The coolest thing was meeting lot of interesting people from around the world who stayed there so atmosphere was amazing."
