  1. Price increase

    “It is now fourteen (£14) entry free, they do have some concessions. The sauna is in dire need of paint and a complete refurbishment. It is a dump. However, it is almost a written guarantee that you will find action. Steamworks looks better and is definitely cleaner, though the men can be aloof. The choice in the Edinburgh sauna scene is between a rock and a hard place.“

  3. it sorted me out

    “I needed attention quick - it served the purpose. didn't notice the décor or flooring or colour of the cushions. I got seen to quickly with no hassle and the other customers seemed polite - forming a queue behind me. Staff friendly - one even gave me a hand in a private room then sent his mate along to finish the job.“

  4. The fact that this is the better sauna is misleading

    “Went to both saunas on my visit. This was slightly less grim than the other one. At least the showers worked. Shower area looked tired and neglected and sad. Steam room again tired and the door closer was broken. Same problem in the sauna. FFS guys it's not rocket science to fix a door. Jacuzzi obviously a cheap domestic affair. Floors in the wet area covered with uncomfortable rubber mats. when you hit an uncovered area you realise why. Non slip tiles are available and it should be sorted urgently. There seems to be a common thread in both saunas that repairs and upkeep are optional. Staff mildly disinterested. No alcohol licence.“

  6. it stinks

    “Got all my personal belongings stolen from my locker; staff did their best to help. The place is very run down and in desperate need of a make-over, most of it smells bad and the staff don't seem to do much, how it's still operating as a business is puzzling, most of the clientele are the same old faces who are there all the time. Wont be back.“

  7. hot place !!

    “I have gone to No. 18 for years. It is without doubt the best gay sauna that I have ever been in, and I have been in a lot, in Scotland and England.
    To the people who claim it is not clean, I suggest that any problems are caused by the customers.
    There are plenty of bins to put anything in, but some people prefer the floor.......... "Shruggs" James.“
