Neil is a friendly, helpful and uncomplicated host, and Neil's flat is the perfect location from which to explore Edinburgh. There are some nice pubs, restaurants, a supermarket and a bike rental outlet nearby (and a coffee shop where schottish workers eat their schottish breakfast - if your interested in tasting a *real* one ;-) ... ). The Grass Market, Old Town and Edinburgh Castle are reachable within about 10-15min by foot. The flat is really beatiful and clean. Also from me: 5 solid stars.

Neil was great. Communication was quick and easy. The place was clean, quiet and comfortable! And he even let me use his washer while I was there!

Neil was a great host! Everything was clearly explained and really simple including which key was for what and getting in and out of the flat. The bed was really comfortable and the room and rest of the house very clean and nicely decorated. I wish it was my own flat! I also really liked the location- a bit further out so not as busy and touristy but still only about 15min walk from the royal mile. Thank you so much for having me Neil! I would definitely stay again!

Neil's place is awesome! Was worried when I booked that it might be away from things -- but instead a few of the best bars and restaurants I stopped at were only a block or two away. Neils super cool as well, we chatted about music and he gave me a few recommendations on where to go. Very solid 5 stars!

Hi there.

I'm a 39 year old Scottish guy from Edinburgh. I'm a camera operator by trade and I like learning languages in my spare time. This has helped fuel my love of travelling and has taken me to places like Spain, France and Argentina.

I have shared many flats with people of different backgrounds and personalities. I'm quite easygoing and enjoy different people's company.
