We stayed with 10 friends for the weekend at St. Christopher's Inn and we got one big room for the 10 of us. Situation of the hostel is perfect (actually the reason why we chose this one). Of course, the hostel is not really recommended for people who want to spend some time to relax in the hotel or the... More

had the most terrible experience in my life yesterday at St . Christopher Inn, Edinburgh. I have stayed in hostels before and have never ever written a bad review for any . I cannot resist this and this needs to be known by the management or any admin . Basically this place is just unbelievable . The bed I got... More

A very clean and well located hostel. I stayed in a twin share room, best sleep I have had in 2 weeks. All the staff were bright and very helpful. Abbey and Skye in particular were both brilliant. I thoroughly enjoyed the pub quiz with the ukulele. Thanks guys! I will definitely return and highly recommend it!

I visited this hostel in September for a weekend away with my friends. The staff were more than friendly and the room was up to standards. The staff informed us about the many attractions around and even helped us sign up for a bar crawl. The food served here was lovely and the the location of the hostel is very... More

I stayed here over the bank holiday weekend. I paid 319 for 4 nights, a pokey double on the top floor, at one end of the room, it was so low, you would always bang your head, It was clean, as pokey a double as you get, with about enough room to close the door etc. I wasn't impressed with... More

I think it must be a pre-requisite of staff (especially those working in Belushi's) to be aggressive and rude. During my travels from December and January I stayed in their Edinburgh and Paris hostels. Now the Paris hostel was great, clean and tidy, private and comfortable. Edinburgh was another story (shower didn't work the whole time I was there, the... More

Stayed in a 14 person room here. The beds weren't hotel quality and the showers were so-so but you're not staying at The Ritz anyway - it's a hostel and the price can't be beat. The place is in a great location and the staff were awesome. Very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Great location, close to everywhere you should visit, speacially close to the main castle and the royal mile, right in front of the train station. Nothing special about the place itself, but the staff is great and the bar is open till late night.

Initially I wasn't expecting too much considering the very reasonable price of the hostel, however the hostel definitely surpassed my expectations! The hostel is in a perfect location opposite the station and in walking distance to everything in Edinburgh. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. The hostel has a bar downstairs with reasonably priced drinks and the free breakfast is... More
