The hostel is more like a big house. Many long term residents and a really good atmosphere when in the evening you want to have a chat with someone. Staff is excellent and available 24/7 Unfortunately the cleanliness is a big black spot, especially in the toilets.. Many of the residents are quite uncivilized, noisy and disrespectful. But this isn't a management fault. Suggestion: Maximum age limit (around 35). There is quite a good number of over 40s defeated-by-life people who are out of place


Position is very good, staff is exceptional, rooms are quite big and warm. Toilets and showers are few but very clean. I had to leave earlier than planned and they refunded my money. This doesn't happen everywhere. Flaws: There is no laundry and no kitchen Mark: 75 over 100 :D

Hi There Thank you so much for reviewing our hostel. We are very pleased the location was helpful, that our staff were friendly and helpful and you were pleased with the rooms. Our building is listed which means we are unable to extend and provide a kitchen/laundry and more bathroom facilities. We try and help out our customers as much as possible with any food items and we have a laundry with a 5 minute walking distance. We will also always provide a refund to anyone who gives us 24hrs notice. Enjoy the rest of your travels and we hope to see you again soon. From St Christopher's Team

Price isn't competitive, if compared to nearby other hostels. Small rooms are quick cleaned daily, but if you have a bed booked for 20 nights, they will NEVER change your bedcloth. The wifi is a disaster (I often went to mcdonald to use a decent one). Toilets are few (Morning queues) and VERY disgustingly smelly. Breakfast has a poor choice. Kitcken is average, but impossible to use in peak time. Showers are the only good thing. I hardly understand how this place can be well rated. To avoid.
