Hi There, Thank you for taking the time to review us. Cleanliness of our bathrooms and hostel is something we are always striving to improve. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay. Happy travels! Edinburgh Team


The hostel was really good, St. Christophers are always a good option to meet people from all over the world. The hostel is located close to the train station and 5 min walking to the Royal Mile Street and that's cool .. you have everthing close to the hostel! The staff was amazing, they helped me booking the tours, gave me recommendations, etc. I'd say this hostel is excellent if you're looking a cheap option with a lot of fun included.


Great place, warm cozy atmosphere. The singing in the bar was a little bit too loud to enjoy a meal tho. I would only suggest some cooking facilities.

Hi There, Thank you for your kind review :) As we are a short term hostel we provide a microwave and hot water for noodles/tea coffee etc and give guests discounts on our menus. We have taken on board your feedback and will look into getting a fridge for guests to use during their stay. All the best with your travels :) Edinburgh Team


Good place to stay! Specially because of the location. I would recommend to try the restaurant/bar they have inside. Beers, drinks and food for a really good price


The common room that wasn't the bar was a dimly lit area that wasn't very pleasant, and the cage under my bed wouldn't pull out because it was blocked by the adjacent bed, so it was very hard to get things in and out. Other than that it was fine.

Hi There, Thank you for taking the time to review us. The common room is definitely something we are looking at improving. Thank you for your feedback and happy travels! Edinburgh Team


Hostel was great! Friendly staff, basic breakfast. The only thing was the showers, which are necessary in freezing Edinburgh.

Hi There, Thanks for taking the time to review us. Sorry you had a cold shower. As we are a very large hostel, often during peak hours the boiler can take a little while to heat up. Hope you enjoyed everything else :) Good luck with the rest of your travels! Edinburgh Team
