I stayed here in December for two nights. It is in a strategic position and the rooms are clean enough. Moreover there is a pub downstairs where you can have discounts on pints, food and coffee. Definitely I will come back here next time I will go to Edinbrugh The only deficit was the lack of wifi in the room.... More

The hostel has great staff and is at a brilliant location. The room was clean and we'll kept, and when one of the beds has lost that thing at the bottom of the metal foot, staff sorted issue out super promptly. Breakfast was plentiful and the onsite pub lovely. I had a great time and would stay again! Although beware... More

This was the worst place to stay. Only stayed for 20/25 mins and had to leave. The 1St room was too small and smelt funny. Went to a different room and that was shocking aswell. The bed was practically on the floor, the window was flithy, didn't even look in the bathroom. Had to bend down to use the kettle... More

This hostel has every basic thing you need. Comfy beds, clean linens, clean showers and toilets. Very friendly and helpful staff which is always appreciated! Really great central location (8 minute walk to the castle!) considering the hostel is between two bars the noise was never a problem! Pretty view outside the room window also. Wifi is only available in... More

I would say one of the best and safe place for solo travelers. Its cheap and located in the heart of Edinburgh. 5 minutes walk from the Rail station and there are many walking distance destinations around this hostel. Good free breakfast with clean rooms. There is also a locker for every bed. You can choose from a different types... More

I love St. Christopher's Inn. It is a brand that I've trusted in the past for having cheap rooms in city centers. I am disappointed at the lack of consistency. Had I not already used them in other cities, I would not book again. I would pay a few extra quids to have WiFi in my room... in another hostel.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in and cheap too. The best thing about this place = LAUNDRY (washer and dryer) IS FREE AFTER 8pm. I can't stress enough how wonderful this is. Never have I been to a hostel with this service!! 1. Hire lockers 0.50 euro per hour or 2.50 euros all day 2. Staff were mainly... More

I stayed in a 16 mixed dorm and was happy with the beds and set up. I did not love the bathrooms as I felt they were smelling of mold and other unpleasant things. They were cleaned daily but with so many people using 2 toilets and two showers they were very dirty. I also realize it is an old... More

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here in a six bed dorm for 10 pound each. The rooms are basic but comfortable. The staff were all incredibly friendly. Free breakfast included in price and great bar and common room. Only downside is that wifi is only in lobby and common room. Bathrooms could be a little cleaner. Overall good stay-... More
