A decent place to stay

Reviewed 19 july, 2022

A good enough place to pass by the city. The room & toilet were clean enough, but the bed sheets were dirty (obvious dirty spots here and there) and the kitchen wasn't so clean either. The facilities were good enough. Unique names for the beds. The atmosphere wasn't good - some weird people once in a while. Friendly receptionists. Strategic location. Because of the price, we will stay there again if we visit Edinburgh in the future, and we recommend others to do the same.

Amazing stay

Reviewed 11 may, 2022

Just before Easter, I spent 5 days at the RMB. This was my first solo trip and I had done some research before I decided to stay here. I arrived at about 19:00 and was met by one of the lovely staff at the reception. I paid for my stay and then received my keys to the building, room, and locker. I stayed in the room Little Miss, which was a a female dorm room with 10 bunk beds. Most nights all of the beds were filled. The hostel is located at the heart of the Royal Mile, nearly all walking tours you do in the city start at a location less than 5 minutes walk away. At the hostel, there was a kitchen where you could cook properly (4 gas pits + pans etc.) and in the morning you could either eat your own breakfast or pay for breakfast offered (bread + spread, cereal + milk (also non-dairy), and some fruit. For my check-out I had to go to the hostel across the road as I had to check out at 6 AM, this was made clear to me before I had arrived which was very much appreciated. You just need to tell them so you can get your ID or 10 euro/pounds back when handing in the keys. The hostel also organised/brought us to events. On Monday there was a pub quiz, Wednesday was a traditional dance night, Thursday Pupcrawl and the other days I cannot remember any more. All in all I can definitely recommend the stay here!

Great visit

All in all this hostel is very clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful and the common areas are welcoming and cosy. I also felt very safe here due to the security measures and the location is perfect. The downsides are you can often hear music through the window, although it did stop after midnight. There are personal plugs and lights but they are so bright you might as well have the main light on so bring an eyemask just in case.

Great Hostel

Reviewed 29 november, 2019

I stayed at the Royal Mile for 1 night before going on a Haggis Adventure tour around Scotland. The location was very convenient for where the tour starts from. The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were tidy and quiet. Good location to get into the main town area as well, around 7-11 minute walk to the shops and main attractions. Also a 7 minute walk from where the airport bus drops you off. It is not a super social hostel, the sister hostel (High St hostel) across the road is much bigger and has organised social events. This is a nice hostel if you want a quiet night. Also you have to walk up some stairs to get into the reception area so not very accessible if you have trouble with stairs or have large suitcases.

Great Location, Great Hostel

Reviewed 17 october, 2019

I'm so glad I chose to stay at this hostel during my trip to Edinburgh. The location of it made it really convenient to get around. I only noticed the noise from a pub one night around 10ish. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. I stayed in a female dorm and there were plugs and book lights in each bunk. The breakfast wasn't free but worth it for the reasonable price. The free tea was nice after a cold day. I was able to store my luggage before check-in which was really nice. I had the chance to visit other hostels in the city and I feel like I lucked out with this one. It's on the smaller side so it felt very welcoming and had a good sense of community. They post group activities by the front desk and I did a couple and they were so much fun. I loved Edinburgh and would definitely stay here again.
