Traveler Reviews

“Great experience”

Rating: 4 Reviewed on February 17, 2017

Travelled here alone for a night and had a great time. Made a bunch of freinds in the hostel and all went for bunch of drinks, showed me all the haunts in Edinburgh. Would come here again definitely...

“good place to sleep for a night or two”

Rating: 3 Reviewed on January 22, 2017

The location was great, close to everything you'd want to see in Edinburgh. Great deals in the pub downstairs as well. The beds were extremely squeaky whenever anyone moved - had a very hard time...

“Very nice location”

Rating: 4 Reviewed on December 23, 2016

The location of the hostel is very good since it takes less than 10 min walking to get to the center. We stayed in a 4 people dorm. The room was nice and clean. The bathrooms could have been taken...


From Waverley train station go towards market street, from market st go on to George IV Bridge. At the end of George IV Bridge take a right at the Bedlam Theatre on to Forrest Road.
Then just look for Malone's Irish Bar on the left hand side of the road and then you have arrived.
