This hostel is very well located right next to the Central Railway station. Rather small rooms and a little cramped for 4 people but very clean and comfortable. The mattress needs to be turned periodically as it tends to slope to one side. Very helpful and friendly staff. Inclusion of a simple breakfast in the bar below is convenient. Overall, a good experience.

I stayed there for three nights in a 10 bed mixed dorm. Even the hostel is not as nice as the St Christopher in Amsterdam, it has the basics. The location is perfect, just in front of the station and 2min by walking of the Royal Mille. Just great.
And the staff is really nice, especially a Colombian woman called Mili. They helped us at every moment, good people there!
Apart from that, the hostel is clean and has something that I really liked, lockers for the suitcases... (if you arrive before the time for the check in or have to leave the room and still want to do something in Edinburgh) even you have to pay a bit is not very expensive and you don't have to worry because your luggage is safe!
The chilling room is not as nice as I expected comparing it with the hostel in Amsterdam, as well as the decoration/furniture/common spaces in general. But the location and the nice people who works there make it a really good place to stay!

I stayed in a 4 bed, mixed dorm with ensuite. Great value for money. Fairly basic set up. No Wifi in room (only in bar and chill out room, but thats ok). Social hostel - great for meeting people. Discount on bar food for people staying there. Excellent location (50m walk from Airlink bus stop/Waverley Station). 5 min walk to the Royal Mile/Old Town and 10 min walk to New Town. I'd stay there again, no worries.

I would first like to say that the location of this hostel is excellent. You're literally right next door to the airport shuttle, and right down town. Other than that, it was ok. I've stayed in other St Christopher's Inns and they were always so much fun...People would talk to each other, hang out, you'd meet people, party, etc. This one was just kind of...blah. Like I got there at 10pm and literally EVERYONE in my room was asleep. I don't think that's ever happened before. I mean you always get the occasional people that go to bed early, early flights or whatever, but literally, the bar was empty, no one was really friendly...The rooms were ok, pretty standard hostel stuff. Everything was clean and in working order. The facilities were decent. Breakfast was ok. All in all it was pretty average, it just lacked the atmosphere of most St Christopher's Inns.

Room Tip: Since the hostel is so quiet, you can book a bigger room (more bunks) and still get a decent night's sleep.

I stayed here for 1 night as part of a stag night out. I've stayed in several youth hostels in the UK and abroad and sadly this one was a bit of a let down.

Our 12 person dorm had it's own bathroom, however the shower was very intermittent and so a decent shower couldn't be had. The toilet was broken and constantly trickling water, and the taps were the wrong way around in the sink. The bed and bedding were clean and fairly comfortable, however they are too short for a 6ft 2 person.

The place is a bit shabby in communal areas, however the bar is good with a decent bar menu. It's location is fantastic and the staff are good.

More regular maintenance would improve the place very quickly.
