My experience is based on one night only, I went to St Christopher's Inn to sleep and took off early the following day. I stayed in a female-only dorm with five other girls on the third floor. I had checked the price of the bed online but had not yet booked my stay before arriving at the hostel. It turned out that the online price was 10 pounds less than if I had booked my bed at the hostel, and the member of the staff I spoke with was very kind and advised me to sit down and book the bed via my phone so I saved ten pounds. I paid 15,90 for my stay.
They were singing karaoke at the bar and I thought it would not be a problem, however the noise was terrible even on the third floor. Fortunately they stopped at midnight. The room itself was clean and nice but the en suite "bathroom" was really small and only had a tiny stall with an overhead shower, and it took lots of time before the water got warm. So if you don't want to get cold standing under a cold shower waiting for the water to get hot, you should maybe open the door of the stall, turn the shower on, quickly close the door, and repeat this about five times (you need to press the button every 20 seconds or so) before you can actually enter the stall itself. But the shower and toilet were very clean, which I appreciated.
The wifi was okay, the breakfast was just what you would expect from a hostel: toast and some cereal, not much else.
