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

Stayed in a 14 mixed dorm, which was quite comfortable and well equipped. There was plenty of room and even some seats around a small table near a table. (I am aware the smaller 6 mixed dorms are very tiny and you struggle to move around). Beds were clean, already dressed, and not squeaky. Individual lockers for each bed were... More

a very good place to be in for cheap accommodation in Edinburgh. The location is SUPERB, not far from the city centre, not far from the castle, not far from the royal mile .. you had everything around you within a 10 minute walk!

There were only a few things that made me feel slightly unsatisfied. The first of which was that there is no kitchen for the guests to use, the second thing that internet (was slow) was only available on the first floor. The third and final things as that some (not only one) of the doors for the toilet booths were... More

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!!
