Hostelworld zegt

Vertaald door Google Budget Backpackers ligt in de levendige buurt Grassmarket, omgeven door bars en cafés en op loopafstand van de bezienswaardigheden rond het centrum van Edinburgh. Het hostel beschikt over rustige, schone en comfortabele kamers en zeer geprezen kroegentochten en wandeltochten. De gasten hebben ons verteld dat er 'veel gemeenschappelijke ruimtes om mensen als u reist op eigen houtje te ontmoeten' en dat ze 'aanbevelen voor mensen die op zoek zijn om te feesten en mensen te ontmoeten'. We hebben gemerkt dat een aantal van hun gasten zijn teruggekeerd om daar opnieuw en opnieuw verblijven.

    Just amazing! Nice rooms, great bar and cool activities, but the staff was the best of the best. Special thanks go out to Will who put a lot effort in to get netflix working so we could see a movie and to Douglas who guided the great walking tour which we can highly recommend! :D

    This was a very good hostel. Great location, super clean and nice rooms. Some minor remarks: - People going out in the Cowgate make a lot of noise each night at about 3-4 am. Well, not much you can do about this, it is a kick ass hostel, so your ass is indeed kicked each night! - In the morning the music in the breakfast area is pretty loud, but again, your ass is kicked once more!

    Ideal location in the hart of old town. Rooms are very nice and well organised. The staff is very friendly and helpful. My only remark is on the showers. They are very clean and there are more the enough for everyone. The showers themselves are a bit small and the space to get dressed and undressed is to small at all. Also, there is almost no space to hang your clothes while in the shower.

    Mooi gelegen hostel in old town, zicht op het kasteel. Personeel is vriendelijk en behulpzaam. Kamers waren netjes en schoon. Toiletten waren minder schoon. Heel basic, niet veel faciliteiten maar waar voor je geld.
