Stayed here for 3 nights during the fringe, was really enjoyable, clean and comfy, stayed in a private double room with en suite. Also was really cheap to stay here, you get a continental breakfast included. Well done guys, keep up the good work!!

Quite number of hostels I stayed in Edinburgh since, I fell in love with the city and decided to stay longer here and this hostel among all is my most favorite one. PROS: 1. This hostel is the nearest and most accessible from the Waverley train station; just right across or only a 5-minute walk, as well as from the... More

This place offers the perfect hostel experience, from cheap food to epic pub crawls. Live music in both Belushi's and Jake's Place and free breaky in the morning for all your hangover needs. Staff are awesome, they go above and beyond, always with a smile on their face. Just like other St. Christopher's Inn hostels around the UK and Europe,... More

Place looked extremely grotty and dingy. Total rip off. Young guy on reception was cocky and rude. Communal areas dirty and someone was sleeping there. They even overcharged for locker. Manager Nic was rude, lazy and unhelpful. She refused to give me her contact details when I made a complaint. Avoid this place like the plague

I stayed at St. Christopher Hostel during the first days of 2016 Edimburg Int Festival. Everything went right during my stay, above all the very friendly staff I met there. Well, to be honest, the room whith too many beds for its size. Also overpriced, obviously due to the dates. But my surprise came just when I realized that a... More

This is your standard hostel. What you can expect from a busy, centrally located, reasonably priced place. The bed was OK, though sleeping got harder in the morning with the heavy traffic just outside of the window. For breakfast there were different kinds of juice and jam, and non-dairy butter for the toasts! Overall I felt pretty safe and the... More

Decent hostel; nothing out of the ordinary. You get what you would expect. Pros: - Very good location - Decent beds - Friendly, helpful staff - Lockers for luggage storage were reasonably priced (2:50 for the day and we fit both our big backpacks in one) - Fairly clean - Cage lockers beneath the beds that you can use your...

Christopher's Inn struck me as a very standard hostel. It had everything I expected there to be and was lacking what I expected it to lack, so to speak. Postive: A cage to lock your stuff in if you are in a shared room (you need your own padlock), nice people, very standard rooms and beds. Not so positive: The... More

Myself and 8 others went to Edinburgh on a stag do and stayed here for 3 nights, the staff were really helpful and the hostel itself was everything we needed and more, the rooms weren't big but that didn't matter as we were only really in them when we were sleeping. The showers were great, the bar beside the hostel... More

Great hostel and very nice people working there. I spent two nights with young girls who could socialize with other people from other countries since we were coming from Argentina either during breakfast or at night in the lively Pub. Food was great and everything was very clean. Excellent location as well, just in front of the station on Market... More
