Cheap and comfortable
The smell inside of the rooms and the beds which stayed on clothes.
I'm in love with this hostel ❤️ Your experience can't be better than here! Firstly it's located in the heart of Edinburgh old Town and in really cool 500 yrs old building that makes you feel like you are in middle ages or one of those Harry Potter movies. Nice idea to put music everywhere in showers and toilets. Nice idea to put fresh hand towels in bathrooms. Wonderful views from the room and for sure your bed will be located next to the window. Wonderful idea to name the rooms and even your bed (Mine was Amazonia). Nice friendly and respectful people in the room (even if it was 20 beds). Wonderful part was kitchen and lounge area where you can put your songs on Spotify juke box. Nice paintings and decorations everywhere. Really, even in highest class hotel you can't find decor like this. It makes you feel cozy and welcome. And for the end I left the best part : yes it's you Jerry from the reception! You are the best and its hard to find such a friendly, full of good energy person, that puts effort to each person that you check in to this hostel and even cook dinner (sometimes)! You are the best! Wish to come back here one day
