    I was greeted very warmly by the reception staff which is a nice touch after a long journey. I did not realise that this was a type of student backpacker place. It was very quiet and clean and in a great location not too far from the city centre and half way to Leith where I was attending the Mela festival. The kitchen was well equipped with kettle, full cooker and pots and pans if you want to do your own cooking and there's a Tesco very close by.

    The double bed was very small and lumpy. You could feel the springs and I would not recommend the studios for a couple as the bed is far too small for 2 people. It was lucky that it was only me staying and my partner was not able to join me as originally booked.

    The studio room was reasonably comfortable but very basic.

    Tv did not work. The fridge sounded like Darth Vader and housed a very hairy/mouldy frozen chip. The Booked.net pages and voucher said there was a bath, but there was not. The shower was good though. Problem with paying and card machine did not work.

    Big room with kitchen and ensuite, clean, close enough to town, we were able to leave our bags there when we arrived early. Overall a good place to stay.

    Iit was a bit cold in the room & the air con was a bit noisey.

    Very good value during the Edinburgh Festival. Compact accommodation but ŵell fitted out with a good kitchenette and shower room. Spotlessly clean room.

    Really a squeeze for two people. The bed was tiny!

    I had a studio apartment which was nice and compact. Staff was helpful and listened to all demands. It is very close to the main attractions of the city and from the station.

    Utensils were not cleaned properly when we checked in. There was no cleaning for the 3 nights stay we were there. Also it does not have a restaurant for anytime hunger needs.

    We stayed in a fourth floor 'classic' studio, which was spacious and comfortable with panoramic views over Edinburgh. It was convenient for the city centre and very quiet. The staff were friendly and attentive to our needs. I loved the fact you could lie on the bed and look at the skyline through the immense window.

    We had to wait some time to gain entrance on arrival. The studio had not been properly cleaned and the bed needed changing.

    The price paid for the location was the best thing about the hotel. There are more central and much better places for sure but for the price charged this is a decent compromise.

    Asked the night staff at the front desk for an extra duvet but the guy said he had no access to anything like that. No major issue but it illustrates that this is student accommodation and not a hotel/b&B.

    Staff were friendly, the location fairly close to city centre (easy to walk), was in a quiet location. I was up for the fringe so know the more central places can get a bit noisy during the night.

    The bed was very uncomfortable, with the springs almost poking through. However, the staff did provide me with an extra duvet to place under the sheet which resolved that issue.

    Good location.

    Even the price is not low for such a class of hotel. Empty room =) I suppose, this is an university campus and used for travellers rent during student holidays.

    Nice staff, possibility to leave luggage in a room next to reception, near to 2 supermarkets and good location.

    1) really uncomfortable mattress, we could feel all the springs on our body 2) very dirty and dusty room --> not recommended to allergic people (and a hoover in the middle of the room wihout a place to put it in) 3) smelly stinky tiny bathroom, without toiletries 4) no toilet paper and just one towel set at our arrival (they forgot to put it and gave it to us when we asked) 5) no reading light and poor furniture 6) unfair price for this type of accommodation

    I liked the friendly nature of the desk staff, who were incredibly helpful at all times. The room was large, clean and on the budget had everything I expected.

    The location is OK for the city centre, but for the comedy fringe it was pretty far away. This was not the fault of the accommodation, as it had been recommended to me by a friend.

    Literally the worst bed we have ever tried to sleep in.

    Great location near to city centre. Very private & clean.

    There was difficulty to use the internet, long procedure to get the internet service.

    Nice staff. Nice studio appartment fully equipped. Usually functions as private dorm. Conviniently located, supermarkets and restaurants close by. Not too far from the city centre. Would stay there again.
