Have just returned from a rugby weekend away in Edinburgh! The St. Christopher's Inn Hostel was basic but clean in a superb location. The staff were excellent nothing was too much trouble for them. Food was excellent with the added bonus of 25% discount on all food & drinks! Thanks again to all the staff, we will return!

The receptionist was very friendly and helpful, and so were other staffs and people. I had a 4-bed-female room which was clean and tidy during my 3-days-staying. Good price and also perfect location. Definitely will come back!!

Then the beds were not clean and the room was boiling. The bathroom was just gross and I really regretted having made 2 bookings in advance. The breakfast... More
