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

St Christopher's Edinburgh is the most conveniently located hostel in the city - we're just across the street from Waverley Train Station. Nominated as one of the exclusive Europe's Famous Hostels, we've been providing a great place for travellers to explore Edinburgh from for years.‬

All guests receive a 25% discount on food at the on-site restaurants, plus great discount deals on drinks!
‪When you arrive, we guarantee a warm and friendly welcome from our well-travelled team who are more than willing to help you with any questions you might have.‬

A continental buffet breakfast is available every morning for £3. Towels are available to rent for £10 with a £8 deposit. Rooms are cleaned daily and we have a variety of rooms, from singles up to 14-bed dorms. Standard and ensuite rooms are available.

‪We’ve got free Wi-Fi for everyone, luggage storage and a 25% discount on food and drink for residents. Padlocks, international plug adapters and bottled water are available to purchase at reception; you can also rent hair dryers and irons. We have an information point with tours and travel products; free historic walking tours leave from outside the hostel every day. Free Laundry from 8pm Every night

There’s no curfew. We have a high level of security, with CCTV cameras throughout the hostel as well as electronic swipe card entry to the hostel and individual rooms. There are in-room lockers and a luggage storage room.

Looking to party? St Christopher's has a fully refurbished Belushi's bar and a separate entertainment venue for your enjoyment! ‬ There’s live music from our resident bands as well as live sports coverage, including all your favourite North American sports, with NASN. Great music, great bar, great prices!

The kitchen is open between 8am and 10pm and serves great good. Guests can also make the most of our cut-price hostel menu.

You can relax in our chill-out lounge with Internet access, large screen and flat-screen satellite TVs and large, comfortable couches.

‪We’re just a few minutes away from the airport shuttle drop-off point and the main bus station.‬

‪We are also near Princes Street, a modern day shopping hub which was built as part of the New Town in the latter half of the 18th century. In true Georgian style, towering over the modern shops is all 200 feet of the Sir Walter Scott Monument, circa 1846. Visitors looking for a tremendous view of the Edinburgh skyline are invited to tackle the 287 steps for the pleasure. ‬

‪No trip to Edinburgh is complete without a taste of Scotland's foremost culinary delight - a steaming bit of haggis. If you fancy it then you're in luck because the most famous haggis-maker in the world, Mr Charles MacSween, resides right here in our fair city. For the uninitiated haggis diners, Scotland is full of the world's finest whiskey to help ease the way. Our staff are at your disposal when it comes to recommendations! ‬

    Hostel in a very good, central location. Decent discount vouchers on food and drink. Locker sizes were quite small and so you couldn’t fit in a pack or decent sized suitcase.

    Fabulous

    It's a good hostel, located in the middle of the city. The location and the staff are the best. Breakfast is available and okay, but it's very small and can get crowded soon. The rooms are okay. I stayed in a female four bed dorm. The room did not have individual reading lights, outlets and a curtain was missing​. The last thing was fixed by the staff. The beds and showers were fine and if something was wrong the reception would fix it as fast as possible. I would stay again, nice place.

    Impossible to sleep!!!! There are triple bunk beds and the structure is really weak so if either of the other two other people make a single move the bed will shake like CRAZY. I couldn’t sleep well any of the 3 nights i stayed there.
