Stayed here for one night in a dorm. Location: Great location - the hostel is right next to the main train station and therefore also in the very city centre within a short walk's reach of all the main attractions. Staff: Staff was friendly and helpful. Hostel and room: The room was a massive dorm with adjacent bathroom which was... More

The best is the location of this hostel, just across the railway station. We stayed in mixed dorm, old building, but has its charm, the bathroom is dedicated to every room. Location, perfect, just behind is the Royal Mile, and under the hostel very good bars! Recommended.

Stayed here Jan '11. Only reviewing now. Not a bad place, I haven't had an issue with any St Christopher's hostels. Food and staff were lovely, rooms tidy. We had a fantastic Australia Day here. Location was great. Would recommend and stay again.

Let's see. I have been to beautiful accommodation where the experience was ruined by horrible staff. In this case, this is a poorly planned and maintained hostel where the friendly staff somewhat enhances the stay, as much as the limited circumstances allow. I would say that the strongest points here are the location, the friendly staff and that you sort... More

We stayed at St. Christopher's Inn on a saturday. We unfortunately got a top floor room, with a very low and angled roof. The toilette was ok, the bed too, but the room had such a low roof that I prepared my coffee kneeling! The price of the room wasn't actually as cheap as it had to be for that... More

Great location and great vibe. 2 min walk to train station, 10 min walk to Edinburgh castle and other sites like nayional gallery. Staff all very friendly and helpful. Rooms are small (had a double bed room), shower does not really work (in our room it was a trickle, unless you wanted a cold shower). Heating doesn't really work, it... More

I needed a place to crash for a night while visiting Edinburgh. It is located very close to the main train station. It is convenient to trail the Royal Mile from the hostel. Although it is close to main tourist areas at Edinburgh(in the HOHO route) it is fairly peaceful here. A good pub which helped me meet other travellers... More

Stayed in here December for a few days - it was really centrally located and close to the train station. Although the breakfast was pretty meagre and the rooms tiny. Our bathroom also regularly flooded - which was a little gross.

We had a private room, which was teeny. Not enough room for 2 suitcases to be open at the same time. The shower was so small I could barely wash myself. No wifi in the rooms, you had to go down to the chill out room or the bar. The chillout room was always full and we couldnt find seats,... More
