Hostelworld says

St Christopher's Edinburgh is very highly rated here on Hostelworld for its location, and no wonder - it's just off the Royal Mile and across the road from Waverly Train station, making it ideal for those coming to Edinburgh by train from London and elsewhere in Scotland and Northern England. This hostel has friendly staff and bright, clean rooms with under-bed lockers; there's also a popular bar underneath with discounts for residents on food and drink.

Property Description

When visiting the medieval Scottish capital, there’s no better place to base yourself than in the heart of Edinburgh. Tucked away in the centre of the medieval Old Town, our hostel is just a stroll away from countless incredible attractions like Edinburgh Castle, the Scottish National Galleries and the Royal Mile. From Waverley train station, we’re only a 2 minute walk away with some of Edinburgh’s best traditional pubs and bars just down the road.

Make the most of daily drinks deals and discounts on burgers in Belushi’s downstairs, or sample some traditional haggis at Jake’s Place next door. We host pub crawls from reception so making new friends is easy before you all take on Edinburgh’s epic underground party scene.

*Please note that we require an in date government approved - drivers license, passport or national ID card at check-in.
Guests under the age of 18 must stay in a private room with guardians. They cannot share in general dormitory rooms with people who are not part of their own group or family. Under-18s are not allowed in the bars or pubs.

    Superb

    Couldn't be closer to the train station and everything in the old town is very accessible. Location is perfect. Thank you, St Christopher's!

    Fabulous

    07 Jul 2018
    This hostel is located very conveniently opposite to the railway station and 1/2 block to the bus which takes you directly to the airport. The rooms pack in the people on triple bunk beds and at first blush look packed but this was honestly one of the best sleeps we had during our hostel stays in ireland and scotland. The staff was extremely helpful. It doesn't have a kitchen, but it has a common microwave and a fridge. plus it has laundry facilities. The bedding was impeccably clean. Loved it

    Very Good

    11 Jul 2018
    Clean and secure rooms but something wrong with the toilet in the bedroom (smelt of drains). Atsmophere was good, they have a nice bar. All staff were very nice and helpful apart from one man who was rude to me one morning. He got annoyed with me when I wanted to sit in the bar to check my bag quickly before I went on my tour. It's a shame because the rest of the staff were nice. A short walk from the Royal Mile. Lockers took my money but never gave me 24hrs.
