a very recomended place to stay, a hostel with a lift ”

The ocation just beside twaverley station, 2 min from royal mile,5 min from edinburgh castel, and the fare also good for a solo traveler like me. Room is organized nicely, bathroom is very clran, the staff is very helpfull, and you it has lift, so need to drag your heavy lugage through the painful stairs. I will stay here longer if I visit Edinburgh.

Best Value & Location”

Location is unbeatable, right next to the Waverley & Central between old town & new town. I got the double ensuite with the best view oversee the station & Princes Street and with most reasonable price during my stay (+30£). The Inn has the lift for heavy baggage travelers, Breakfast is good & free if booking direct. Highly recommended

Brilliant location. Right across from train station (Waverley) and bus to airport. On the cusp of Old town and New town. Great location to go see the best of both. Staff were great too. Talia/Tanya (can’t remember actual name/kiwi girl) was brilliant and very helpful as was Bella. Great private bathrooms too in the dorm.

Normal hostel”

Pro : nice location, nice mattres, have private locker in room. Have private power socket.have bar and big screen tv. Con: no kitchen . Only have microvawe. Chilling room is very small compare to the size of hostel. Frige is very small. Not enough space for storage. No tissue paper to use in chilling room. Ni water sink to wash hand in chilling room. They provide small 5 littre(maybw) water tank in chilling room which is always empty and 1 have to imform the reception twice. Water cup always finished.no plate or bowl to use. Only a plastic spoon and fork. Toilet near room 403, one toilet door no key. 3 handwash soap tank always empty during my 3 nights stay. Staf start work too early make lot of noise .could not sleep. Can hear people walk, door open n close sound often from inside the room. Have to pay for locker after check in time. THE ELEVATOR WAS THE WORST. very slow and look so broken. Be prepare to wait for it for few minutes. I have been to few st christoper hostel around europe. By far the worst st christoper hostell i have stayed.

This is a backpacker inn anyway. It provides everything you need as a backpacker - bed, hot water shower and breakfast. But the St Christopher Inn in Paris is much better.

A few minutes walk from Waverley train station and a couple of minutes from the Royal Mile (leading to the castle). Nice bar downstairs and chill out area upstairs. Rooms and bunk beds as described. Bag storage/ lockers (useful if you leave late at night after 10am check out) are £1.50 (small) or £2.50 (large) for 24 hours.

I’ve stayed in a few hostels before, and this is one of the best value for money! Free WiFi & laundry, hot showers, great location and super friendly staff. The beds are comfy but the only downside was no kitchen to cook your own food. Apart from that, it was exactly what was needed :) Thanks for having me!
