Great for the price! The bathroom really nice and clean. The room was small, but also orderly, clean, and cozy! A little farther from New Town/Old Town, but definitely walkable. Walked to Princes Street and was about 35 minutes to get there, but there also is a bus stop near by if you wanted to take the bus! Enjoyed my stay here, would definitely recommend!

The breakfast is spectacular. You definitely won't go hungry! The campus is right at the foot of King Arthur's seat so the backdrop is stunning and a bit away from the city bustle. There are sinks in the room but you share toilet and shower. Overall an excellent budget option, especially for solo travelers.

Nice place for a budgetary visitor. Only communal bathrooms.

Would’ve been fine if the rates were in line with staying in a dorm. But $175/night (during fringe festival) for a dorm room was pretty ridiculous. Staff was great but room quality was lacking.
