Great location and a fun hostel. I stayed in a 12 bed female dorm, which is busy to say the least but it seems to work. The beds are triple bunks but the curtains and charging station make it more private.

Incredible location, bursting with activities and cosy. A bit of mix up when booking our room and staff could be a wee bit more attentive to its patrons. Otherwise we had a wonderful time at the hostel and would definitely come back again, should we be in Edinburgh anytime soon. Thank you for the lovely stay! x

The best thing about this hostel is its location: in front of Waverley station and just a few steps away from the heart of Edinburgh (all the main touristic attractions can be reached easily on foot)! Besides, prices are outstanding. I booked a bed in a 18-bed mixed dorm and it was really cheap. Obviously, when you pay less than...

I came to St. Christopher Edinburgh with very high expectations. But I was sadly disappointed. The Paris Gare du Nord branch was extremely clean, great staffed, and knocked my socks off with the party atmosphere. So I decided to stick with this chain because I had such a great experience at both places in Paris. This hostel was very dirty!...

Our stay here was a disaster. We booked two entire rooms for our group in orden to be alone and they put other people in our already paid beds. Solutions late. Shower dirty and water wouldnt last enough. Receptionist without any solution (it was the manager who solved the many problems the staff caused). Good location, but I wont come...

I go to edinburgh a lot and had previously stayed several times at another hostel thinking it was the best the city had to offer, that was until my stay at st christopher inn. The best were amazing! Having privacy curtains, your own light and own charge ports on every bed is a god send. I was in an 18...

The worst ever: very dirty, disgusting, insects in a room and in a bathroom. There was a leakage in the bathroom and they refused to repair it. The water dropped down every 20 seconds and it was challenging to fall asleep. Guess what they offered me at the reception: another room? Any compensation for the discomfort? No way: ear plugs......

Myself and three friends planned on staying here for two nights but had to leave after one traumatic nights stay and try to find somewhere else on a busy weekend in Edinburgh. Not only were the rooms dusty and dirty but just as we were going to turn off the light to go to sleep one of the girls spotted...

I was staying in a 6 bed dorm with my friend. The room was small with zero ventilation. The location is good and that is the only good part about the hostel. The common area was cramped up with water leakage on the ceiling and absolutely no cutlery and utensils for bringing your own stuff.

Primary plus point is the excellent location from airport bus and the train station. Easy walk to the main attractions in town too. Have to pay to use the paid lockers to keep your luggage as the place is extremely strict with the check in and check out timings. Breakfast is simple but decent.

“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.”
