Excellent location,just go upstair from the road and you are by the castle and the royal mile. It is not a new facility but it is well kept. There are plenty of showers and toilets , at least on the floor I was. I didn't really use any common rooms besides the kitchen because I was out all day Overall nice inexpensive place to stay when you visit the town.
