I was travelling alone and stayed in a room of eight; my roommates were friendly and it was comfortable. Some of the facilities in the room weren't top notch (ex: lights and outlets not working, creaky bunk beds), but in terms of what I had paid for, I got far more than what I had expected. My only issue is that there were only two outlets for8 people and one of them wasn't working throughout my four-night stay. Thankfully, there are several outlets in the main seating area that is usually empty so I charged my phone, laptop and camera there. Staff is also very friendly and approachable, and they gave great recommendations for both touristy and not-so-touristy things to do around Edinburgh.
