very clean, comfortable, the dorms had their own shower and toilet (very convenient!) good food services, very nice kitchen, nice youthful environment.
the only negative aspect is that even though it is quite expensive for a hostel it doesn't provide any free services. One has to buy internet credit, for one pound per hour, something that I find completely inappropriate nowadays. What is more, even though the sheets are for free, if you don't have your own towel you would have to pay for one. Last, if you have trouble with noise while sleeping, I wouldn't suggest a room or dorm on the street, as the Leith Walk -the street that the hostel is on- is very noise all night long.
