8/10 Very good

Great location
Great location, friendly staff, perfectly adequate en-suite student room with a nearby kitchen to use too. Only problem we encountered was that it was very warm and was impossible to open the window more than a couple of inches at the top… a ‘health and safety’ matter apparently. Other than that, all good and would use again.

Great value option
Great accomodation option, clean quite but with the advantage of option to cook for self in the shared kitchen if needed. I would say dont let the fact this is student accomodation put you off. It was quite and easy to keep youself to self. Bed was fine for us as a couple as im short and so i could sleep where the end of the bed had the end of a desk against it and he is 6 foot 1 so his feet could dangle over end. Was a great base to expre the city from.

Convenient location to main center of town and train station (moderate walk). Helpful and courteous staff. Clean room. No A/C but Edinburgh usually doesn't need it, I suppose. Fan was available to borrow. Private room with bath was sufficient with external shared kitchen among a "flat" of a few rooms. For the price it was reasonable. No complaints.

8/10 Very good

A great bargain for staying in Edinburgh during the Fringe. I got a spacious room and the bed and pillows were decently comfortable as well. Definitely high scores for convenience - it's just by the main road so getting to and from the city centre via bus was really easy, and there's also a Sainsbury's and Starbucks right next door. The walls are thin though, and you definitely get street noise, but overall I was still able to sleep reasonably well over the 5 nights I stayed.
