This place is good if you are just looking to rest your head for the night. I would not recommend it for solo travelers looking to meet people, unless you are good at striking up conversation at a bar. It is cool that there is a bar downstairs, but the staff seems way more concerned with running the bar than the hostel. In fact, I never saw a staff member except those behind the bar. There was also some confusion with beds while I was there - seemed very disorganized. Breakfast was very weak.

I'm sorry you were disappointed. We like to put equal focus into both the bar and the hostel. There are many activities running through the week to engage guests and help them meet other people. The chill out room downstairs is also perfect for that, even if you don't wish to get involved with the hostel dinner, movie night or pub crawls. I know I met some life long friends when I first stayed here 4 years ago and it's exactly why I came back. -Anna


In the evening I tried to close the window - in the twin room facing the busy road. The handle was broken and lying by the window. Somebody tried to do the same before me......probably many people. The window doesn't shut, it cannot even be fixed, unless it is completely changed. I reckon most of the windows are like that. I told the staff, but they must know. I was given earplugs - managed to sleep, but Christophers should be honest about the state of their rooms before selling them.

We are aware some of the windows can be a little tricky to shut but that's why we are having a refurbishment. I'm sure you noticed lots of things being fixed or changed during your stay. No comment is ever ignored. -Anna


St Chrisopher's provides a good solid party environment. No kitchen or cooking Facilities or nice common area. I find it good for what it is.

Great to hear!! We hope to see you hear in the near future. -Anna


Street noise can be very loud at this location. Also, our private room had bunk beds--sort of a bummer for a couple. Otherwise, great location and pretty solid around.

There are two private double rooms (double beds) and one private twin (bunk beds). I understand it can be confusing just give us a call or send us an email next time you would like to stay with us and we can help you out with identifying the room you want. Glad you enjoyed yourselves overall though. :) -Anna
