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. You can walk pretty much everywhere from here so it's the perfect central location for backpackers. There is a continental breakfast available every morning for just £5 a day which can be purchased at reception.on arrival.

Party in the hostel's new and improved Belushi's Bar, make the most of hostel events such as Bar Crawls and Free Walking Tours and then have a good night's sleep after a busy day. We are across the road from Waverley train station and only a 2 minute walk away from some of Edinburgh's best traditional pubs and bars in the medieval Old Town.

*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.

***Please note: non-refundable reservations will be fully charged at the time of booking.

This place is exactly what you pay for. Obviously it’s not going to be a five star standards, but there was a nice comfortable bed, friendly staff, decent facilities and an amazing location. Tram stops and city centre is right on the doorstep.
