Decent rooms. Right in heart of city centre- walking distance to most important tourist attractions and transport links.
Unfortunately, our beda and lickers were in adjacent rooms.
The manager Jade was amazing- very helpful and bubbly.
Over all good stay
Got a room with sharing as a 4. Had a sink which was a bonus not having to leave to brush your teeth. I’m a big guy and was on top bunk but I was very comfortable. Showers were a bit rubbish and there weren’t...More

What a wonderful location! Right on the corner of Grassmarket, a stroll away from the Royal Mile and right on the local partying street of Cowgate. This is a great place for young backpackers to go and explore the town on foot. The prices are...More

Hey thank you for your very kind words. We are so pleased your stay with us was and continues to be such a positive experience. We appreciate you taking the time to post this review. BB Manager :)
Hostel kinda looks like their trying to hard to be “cool” or “hip” but dismiss that. It’s a pretty good place to stay and eat!

Thank you for the good feedback and all your positive comments. We are not sure why the showers would be cold then really hot but we have asked our maintenance team to check all the automatic thermostatic valves to ensure that there are none that...More
Few Edinburghers live in the Old Town, but its labyrinth of dank alleys and steep streets suggests this was not always the case. Today, it’s mostly visitors, tartan-flavoured souvenir shops, and pipers that you’ll find on its cobbled streets. This is the place to get a feel for Auld Reekie (Old Smelly), as the town was once nicknamed, and stroll the Royal Mile, the thoroughfare that links the castle with the
royal palace – two of Edinburgh’s great set-piece attractions. But there’s lots more exploring to do here down dozens of little alleys, or wynds, while at night the city’s busiest clubs erupt along the Cowgate which is closed to traffic for this purpose.

Hi there. The bathrooms we have are as follows. Some of our bathrooms are mixed gender , what this means is that the sinks areas are the the only sections that are mixed and shared. The Showers areas are Private pods that have a shower area and a changing area in front that are completely private. The toilets are also private cubicles. We also have a couple of Male only and female only Bathrooms in our hostel that are specifically single sex. These bathrooms have showers that have privacy shower screen and curtains and of course the toilets are completely private cubicles also. We hope this explains our bathroom set up for you . We hope you decide to book with us. BB Crew :)
