Great location in Edinburgh. The staff was friendly and as always it is easy to meet people in a St,Christopher's location, The only thing is that the doors are rusty and make loud noises at night. The staff should be easily able to fix this,

It would be good to have reading lamp for each bed so that we can off the main light at night and those who wish to read can use the reading light. Also, lack of power point. There is only two on my room so absolutely it is not enough for a 6 beds room.

The wi-fi was not available in the room. The lounge area was under construction at the time I visited, so it was hard to find a place where you can stay and just use the Internet.

This was the first hostel I've stayed in and I really enjoyed it. It made me comfortable to stay in more hostels during my trips.

The free breakfast is basic but great for cutting costs. The staff are very helpful, location is great. The mattresses are not great...very soft which is not great for some people's backs. However, for my brief stay it was a good choice.

I can see why they encourage online check in - took over 10 minutes to check us in. The dorm room was cramped, the cage provided broken. Two power points in a 12 bed dorm. Showers were really dirty and a terrible quality.

Good location. Nice bar. Smart luggage storage. Wifi doesn't work in rooms. Floor needs to be clean more. 1 bathroom between 10 people in the morning can be tricky. Not much space in room.. Otherwise pretty good

It was a good location and good price for 12 bed but for some reasons the bathroom doors in St. chrisotphers are always broken or damaged. It was good for a night out on the tow, there was limited space seating in the breakfast serving room. Other than that good hostel overall.

This hostel was very nice! There is a nice bar/restaurant downstairs and the chill-out room is a bit small, but allows you to make friends easily! Also, the free breakfast includes bread, ham, cheese, yogurt, fruits, coffee/tea/hot cocoa, cereals, therefore: LOVED IT. The location is great, but you do have to go up and down a lengthy flight of stairs to get to and from the hostel to the new and old cities. The staff is super nice though and will answer any and all questions you have!

We had a great time at the hostel. Everything was very clear, the atmosphere was great and the rooms satisfactory. There are big "bed cages" that can be locked to keep all your valuables and you can easily fit two or three big bags in it. The common room is comfortable and there always seemed to be some people in there. Free breakfast! and a discount when you order from the resto beside. The only downside: no kitchen area. This was fine as I was were only there for one evening.

Awesome location and ever more awesome free breakfast. Only downside to this place was the lack of kitchen (only a microwave) and the fact that the wifi was only in the common areas. All together it was a great stay.

They need to lose the paper cups for tea and coffee in the bar. A cup of tea needs a mug or a cup......

The hostel is well located and has a good breakfast, which I think that makes the price fair enough. The only observations would be that the wifi doesn't work on all the floors (which I think that wouldn't be so complicated to solve) and the few number of sockets avaiable. The locker system isn't very clear with the sizes avaiable, so I payed for a medium locker just to realize that wasn't big enough for my luggage. Besides the details, it was a nice place for a short stay in Edinburgh :)

This hostel has an excellent location and great atmosphere. It was clean and there were lots of amenities we enjoyed, along with the fact it was easy to get to from the airport and easy to get to other places around town from. The only complaint is the no internet in the rooms-- it's 2015, so it was a bit annoying to have to trudge back and forth to check the forecast or emails. Free breakfast was much appreciated, and we felt very safe and cozy in the private double.
