Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

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.‬

‪ Our rooms include free continental breakfast, free hot showers and free linen. Towels are available to rent for £1 with a £5 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, free luggage storage and a 10% discount on food and drink for residents. Phone cards, padlocks and snacks are available at reception; you can also rent international plug adaptors, 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.

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! ‬

Please note that guests under the age of 18 years of age 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 after the end of food service‬.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Stayed in a 4 mixed bedroom. Room was clean, and ensuite toilet/shower room was also clean. However, the shower / toilet room was very small and cramped!

Excellent location, 3 mins walk from Waverly Station and with plenty of bars, eateries and shops around it in the Old Town area.

Efficient and pleasant staff, and the place had a good atmosphere with Belushi's bar being just below the rooms.

Breakfast I think was advertised as a "continental" breakfast. I have yet to discover what a continental breakfast really is. This one was cereal and toast with a choice of tea or instant coffee.

All in all I would stay here again if I had to as it is a decent hostel, with 24 hour reception and easy access.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I thought the accomodation was good value for money and was impressed when we were told that the cost also included a free breakfast! The room was quite small so I wouldn't have wanted to share with people I didn't know

The location was very central, easy to get to from the station. The only downfall of this was the noise even though we were on the third floor
