    Only stayed one night but the staff were super nice and the location was great! Literally right next to Waverly station. Room and bed were clean and comfortable, and live music next door. Will definitely stay again in the future.

    Clean, friendly hostel in an amazing central location! Staff were helpful and check in/out was so easy. It does have a bar/restaurant which guests get discounts at. There weren’t many other guests to interact because of offpeak season, which i didn’t mind at all but may factor in if you’re looking for a more outgoing place to stay.

    Arrived to an extremely drunk Stag do causing quite a lot of havoc in the main lobby, which was initially concerning. However, once I had got to my dorm I was impressed by the cleanliness, the facilities and the quietness of the dorm. Showers and toilets were excellent. The location is great, right beside Waverley station and the adjoining bar is fairly decent, offering a good discount on food and some drinks for guests at the hostel. Overall I would definitely come again.

    It’s a dorm, not a hostel. There was no common lounge nor kitchen. Just a dorm and bathroom.

    Nice place right in the centre of Edinburgh. The facilities are great; downstairs bar for a drink before you head out (though I suggest you pack earplugs with you as during the night you might hear the party/music coming through if you're a light sleeper), bathrooms are right by the rooms which is great. The staff is really nice and friendly - also very helpful. However I suggest you check your bedding before sleeping in it. My bedding clearly wasn't changed after a person.

    Everything was great. Only issue is wifi is super slow. In 2021 wifi speeds should be better than 3.0 MBPs I mean the airport is 75, so that is disappointing

    Location and staff were both really nice, but it didn't make up for the lack of facilities (number of toilets, showers, common room), the atmosphere (very cheap drinking culture) and the lack of cleanliness (toilets and showers were disgusting, so was the "lounge" that I found on day 3 after asking if there was anywhere to make a cup of tea (no kitchen). They have clearly emphasized the bar (loud and cheap) which is two inside doors away from dorms, so sleep is pretty hard to come by.

    - Many security issues in this place, never felt so unsafe at a hostal before. Had many incidents, from room door broken, from police arresting people from the room, to girl being removed by security, outsiders entering - many problems with their system, I had to change beds 5 TIMES cause they kept giving my bed to other people. - NO social vibe. Bar is dead and the is no real common area. If u expect party, this is not like others St.Christophers - cleaning is worse than normal for a hostal
