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!!

“4 bedroom ensuite highly recommended. Ask for room 45/46 which both have a good view over the city. Plus they are quieter with less noise.”
