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. View House Rules

    Superb

    A wonderful location, right across the street from the 24/7 airport buses. I was easily able to check out around 4:28 AM and made the 4:30 AM bus ride to the airport for my early flight. A good distance from the Old Town and Princes St., too. My roommates were a bit noisy, but that can’t be helped, and it was good for what I needed

    Very Good

    Stayed in a 4 bed room. Very small and got really hot at night. Just cracked the window but definitely woke up sweaty. Bathrooms on our floor were tight and not very nice compared to other hostels in the area. Did enjoy the bar here and location was great!

    Good

    10 Feb 2019
    Giving an average rating because the 'common room' was set up in a really antisocial way. There was no way to meet people aside from drinking alone at the bar. Also there was no kitchen or anything to make food except for a microwave so a little bit disappointing! Other than that clean, safe and staff were friendly
