This place has some nice features, but all of them cease to have any value because of this one massive drawback: No sleep. Cowgate is the WORST place to live in edinburgh, by far. Freshers? No sleep. Lectures? No sleep. Exams? You guessed it, no sleep. Lots of noise comming in from the drunkards wandering the street and the "convenient" bar features bad live gigs weekly. It doesn't help that the noise isolation is non-existant and the doors are literally impossible to close quietly. The closing mechanism slams the door shut every time so whenever your flatmate decides to leave their room/go to the kithen you will get woken up. The window might as well be open with how much noise it lets in. Also my neighbors upstairs are often jumping and stomping around so hard that my laptop and bed are shaking. That, seriously overpriced laundry, constant ear-piercing fire alarms, mainenence issues with door keys (cant access kitchen and late to lectures) make this place a no-go.
