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.
LOVELY to hear you enjoyed it here so much! I hope to see you soon !:) Loves, St Christopher's EDI
The staff are friendly. hostel location is in tge middle of old town and new town Edinburgh. value for money! might want to add - Miss Pillar is awesome and very helpful staff!
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
Great for the price”
Had to travel from Edinburgh early in the morning, so just wanted somewhere to be until 4am, and this was great for the purpose - forgot my purse at the bar/check in are, but staff had put it aside for me, so great staff as well!
easy and comfortable to saty”
I had a great time there I met new friend and easy to travelling look around thing in Edinburgh.
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.
A good hotel at convenient location”
convenient location, good price, good service. I booked this room through Agoda. The room is located next to Railway Station and is so conveneint. The rooms were neat and clean. The room service was also OK. The staff were friendly. The breakfast was also good. I recommend this hotel to Agoda users.
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.
the best place and affordable price”
it just located in front of the train station, mall and many intersting places. they provide lift, which is very helpful. free laundry and comunal room which is very helpful. this place is the best place for a solo traveler like. me. but get ready if there is a booking group, just get ready to removed your bag, suitcase to another romm. because a guest was complaining because he was removed to my room because of schoolies booking group.
good enough for an overnight stay”
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.
Budget hostel for the packpacker/party-type person”
This hostel was a bit chaotic and somewhat filthy and next time I'm in Edinburgh I'll probably pay a little more for a tad better standard.
good location,Rude room cleaning man”
Stay was good, the cleaning boy though he knew I was in the room taking a shower he choose to stay there ,I understand check out time is 10 but if 10 min extra to check out of room is all right Cause their check in time is 2pm and he spoke rudely reminding me the time, he should have just gone out when he knows someone is in the room,this seriously needs to be taken care off.
Hostel with hotel value”
Loving the location only across the train station, and the room was pleasantly nice with inside bathroom. For a hostel, they provide lift and luggage drop because our train would leave in the afternoon.
The location of this hostel is very convenience as it is closed to Paddington station, but it was noisy when train passed through the station. The staffs are nice and the public area including toilets & bath rooms are clean. However, the soundproof of the room is quite bad.
Good Hostel Experience”
its an awesome location and the bar downstairs is a great place to meet people but like most backpackers its packed with aussies (for better or worse). also, the staff is wicked friendly and hooked will help you with more or less anything. the room i was supposed to get booked into was full-up but they hooked me up with a single, good people.
Great hostel for backpacker”
Good location & faculities and reasonable price
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!
Good for a hostel ”
Only stayed one night as was just traveling through. I sat in the bar downstairs till about 12 drinking then went to bed, got up at 5 and left so I cant really judge the place. The bed was comfortable, the toilets were clean and the bar was well stocked, what more could you want
The very perfect location”
I really enjoyed my stay here! The bed was clean and comfy, the bathroom was clean. The pub downstairs was cozy and there's socket on every bunk beds! It really worth the money!
