Is a very good hostel. Secure, clean, people there is friendly, they have a very good breakfast. I Totally recommend it. It has a bar besides the reception. I didn't found so comfortable the chilling out area.

If this is the worst that St. Christopher's offers, then sign me up! Excellent, friendly service. Clean rooms and bathrooms; that were kept clean. Excellent location just off of the Royal Mile and across from Waverley Station. The hubby and I stayed in a 10 person dorm. No problems. Not to mention, the lovely receptionist at the counter all but... More

Not an awful place to stay...but not particularly great. I'm not a very fussy person... but I've decided to stay a few extra days in Edinburgh and have chosen a different hostel as opposed to extending it at St. Christophers. Cons: - Laundry "broken"... the whole room is out of order and was the main reason I booked this place... More

It's a hostel in every sense of the word! It is not like the modern Generator hostels and such which have more pod like bunks that offer some privacy and have a light and power point in each bed compartment. I didn't like filmsy steel framed bunk beds. There is zero privacy, but what more can you expect? The sheets... More

In a word, this place was a dump. Dirty, smelly, broken, unsafe, loud, you name it. My bed was on the floor, I had a skylight that birds could fly through, but no windows. The elevator was broken, as was my door, so it wouldn't stay shut. My room smelled like sewage and the bedding was filthy. I checked out... More

Having stayed in the wonderful and recently opened St Christopher's Inn in Paris on a couple of occasions , I thought this the paris hostel would be similar but it is rather more basic The hostel, apparently in the process of being refurbished, really lacks certain basics in the rooms. I stayed in a family room, extremely cramped, and without... More

This place is a dump, and they lie. If you look online, and even here, the photos you see are NOT what you're getting at ALL. I traveled with a group and we were shoved in a small room with 6 sets of bunk beds, because for some reason, my school thought a backpacking hostel was a GREAT idea!! We... More

Stayed one night in a four person dorm. Bed was comfy, sheets clean and luggage hold underneath bed was adequate but bring your own lock. No bin in the room which was odd. Staff in general were blunt and seemed preoccupied with other tasks as opposed to attending to guests. The location is undeniably good, so close to Waverley Bridge... More

I stayed in a 10 bed room (girls only) and had absolutely no problem with my stay. The staff is very nice and always willing to help, the pub downstairs is a great choice if you don't wanna go too far but still wanna have a nice night. Super well located, right in front of the main train station of... More
