From journal Edinburgh - Perspective From a Local
Newcastle, United Kingdom

With the skill of a politician, St Christopher's had been somewhat economical with the truth. Its adverts claimed an excellent TV and games room, which turned out to be two sofas and a pack of cards. Residents received free continental breakfast each morning, which was two slices of toast with jam. Constant improvements were also promised, this at least was true, as guys with hammers and drills woke me up at 8am each morning.
To its credit however, the hostel is attached to a bar called Belushis, which provides good food, (at a discount to residents) and Sky television, so you don't miss your favourite sports team getting beaten. There is also no curfew, and you need electronic cards to access your room, although true backpackers never have anything worth stealing.
Still, unless your traveling in a large group, I'd recommend you check out other hostels first before checking in, as you're likely to get a better deal a little further away from the city center.
