4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, room comfort
Good option for cheap accommodation during fringe
Location and price were great for the Fringe festival. Only drawback was the loud noise from the other people in the flat during the night.

Fair accommodation
The room assigned was really basic: simple furniture and a very old mattress. The biggest issue was with the shared bathroom, in which the plug of the shower was constantly blocked and water was overflowing.

Convenient for the Fringe
Great central location for the Fringe festival, with free parking. Great value for money as well. The real drawback is the noise into the early hours. The rooms are basic with no hangers or soap. My review is generally positive because of the central location and the price.

Student housing, a bit expensive for what you get
Pros: Clean Full Kitchen available Lots of restaurants near by Very friendly and helpful staff Cons: Although this is stated very clearly, you are sharing an apartment/ flat with other people. While I never had an interaction with the other guests, I did hear them. This is student housing and conforms to certain fire code laws-- including doors that close on their own, or rather slam shut all the time. It is loud and during the Fringe Festival, people are coming and going at all different times. This is not great for light sleepers. The location is a solid 20 minute walk or more to most tourist attractions and Festival venues. You get one key for the building/apartment/your room. They key did not work well to enter the building. While it is still one of the most affordable options during the festival, it is still expensive for what you are getting.
