Incredibly cheap- but for good reason. My bed had crumbs all through it and there was a lot of people (around 10) for one bathroom. But I guess that it typical of hostels. The room was fairly quiet at all times of day, allowing people to sleep when they pleased. The free tour they offered was amazing, especially considering I... More

I have stayed here on a number of occasions and it used to offer very good value, given its location. No longer true I'm afraid. Rooms are as basic as ever but no attempt to manage noise at night, combined with a drop in service at the restaurant means that I won't be back.

This B&B is walking distance from the Main Station, very centrally located, staff are courteous and polite, the rooms are clean and spacious. The lounge area is a great place to relax and meet other travellers. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and would definitely recommend this place for some who is looking for a budgeted stay option.

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!!

We booked here due to the location and price, both of which were fantastic. We were upgraded to a 6 bed dorm, which was handy. Lift was out of action and there were some other works going on, but it is the off season, so I understand why they're doing it now. Rooms were basic, but everything we needed was... More

I stayed here twice in the last month and my first visit was absolutely terrible, the lift didn't work so I had to heave my 18kg bag up to the 3rd floor. 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
