Hostelworld says

St Christopher's Edinburgh is very highly rated here on Hostelworld for its location, and no wonder - it's just off the Royal Mile and across the road from Waverly Train station, making it ideal for those coming to Edinburgh by train from London and elsewhere in Scotland and Northern England. This hostel has friendly staff and bright, clean rooms with under-bed lockers; there's also a popular bar underneath with discounts for residents on food and drink.

Property Description

St Christopher's Edinburgh is the most conveniently located hostel in the city - we're just across the street from Waverley Train Station. Nominated as one of the exclusive Europe's Famous Hostels, we've been providing a great place for travellers to explore Edinburgh from for years.‬

All guests receive a 25% discount on food at the on-site restaurants, plus great discount deals on drinks!
‪When you arrive, we guarantee a warm and friendly welcome from our well-travelled team who are more than willing to help you with any questions you might have.‬

‪ Our rooms include free continental breakfast, free hot showers and free linen. Towels are available to rent for £10 with a £8 deposit. Rooms are cleaned daily and we have a variety of rooms, from singles up to 14-bed dorms. Standard and ensuite rooms are available.

‪We’ve got free Wi-Fi for everyone, luggage storage and a 25% discount on food and drink for residents. Phone cards, padlocks and snacks are available at reception; you can also rent international plug adaptors, hair dryers and irons. We have an information point with tours and travel products; free historic walking tours leave from outside the hostel every day. Free Laundry from 8pm Every night

There’s no curfew. We have a high level of security, with CCTV cameras throughout the hostel as well as electronic swipe card entry to the hostel and individual rooms. There are in-room lockers and a luggage storage room.

St Christopher's has a fully refurbished Belushi's bar and a separate entertainment venue for your enjoyment! ‬ There’s live music from our resident bands as well as live sports coverage, including all your favourite North American sports, with NASN. Great music, great bar, great prices!

You can relax in our chill-out lounge with Internet access, large screen and flat-screen satellite TVs and large, comfortable couches.

‪We’re just a few minutes away from the airport shuttle drop-off point and the main bus station.‬

‪We are also near Princes Street, a modern day shopping hub which was built as part of the New Town in the latter half of the 18th century. In true Georgian style, towering over the modern shops is all 200 feet of the Sir Walter Scott Monument, circa 1846. Visitors looking for a tremendous view of the Edinburgh skyline are invited to tackle the 287 steps for the pleasure. ‬

‪No trip to Edinburgh is complete without a taste of Scotland's foremost culinary delight - a steaming bit of haggis. If you fancy it then you're in luck because the most famous haggis-maker in the world, Mr Charles MacSween, resides right here in our fair city. For the uninitiated haggis diners, Scotland is full of the world's finest whiskey to help ease the way. Our staff are at your disposal when it comes to recommendations! ‬

Please note that guests under the age of 18 years of age must stay in a private room with guardians - they cannot share in general dormitory rooms with people who are not part of their own group or family. Under-18s are not allowed in the bars or pubs after the end of food service‬.

Latest Review

" The hostel has no form of security or whatsoever. In the middle of the night, a drunk man entered my room asking me to leave, because apparently the reception sold my bed spot twice in the same day. It is also very easy to access any other room, since you can just go to the reception and ask them to activate the card to open the door for any room number without them to perform any check on who you are. Non-guests of the hostel can access any floor as well during the night. "
