Great chill hostel with friendly staff

Pros: The friendly nature of everyone and how welcoming they are.
Cons: Can understand it might not be everyone's cup of tea but was perfect for me and my friends. Will definitely be coming back.
Location: Not too far from Haymarket train station, only a 20 minute walk. Didn't explore much nearby as only stayed for a limited time.
Stayed only a night at the hostel with a group of friends before an early morning flight. Very welcoming with everyone being friendly and respectful of each other. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for a chat or a hang out with some nice people while visiting the city. It not be the most beautiful place on the outside but once you enter the hostel it's like a mini community and you can forget that you are in the middle of the city.
