If you like wifi, plugs, and non-creepy staff, then don't stay here.
There was no wifi in the upper floors of the hostel, which I've never encountered in a hostel before. There was one outlet with maybe four plugs in an 8-person room. This means that not only are there not enough plugs, but you can't charge your phone while you sleep without fearing it being stolen or having your alarm wake up the entire room. No check-in before 2pm is, again, something I've never encountered in a hostel before. I arrived around 10am after an all-night flight and all I wanted to do was rest, but I was prevented from doing so because of this policy, one that every other hostel I've stayed in has managed to be able to develop a system preventing. I got Subway on my way home at night. I wasn't allowed to take it to my room, and I wanted to use the wifi while I ate (since I couldn't get it in my room anyway), so I decided to eat it on the picnic tables outside. Despite the kitchen being closed, I was told that I couldn't eat my sandwich there. So essentially, I couldn't eat food at my lodging. I understand why a policy why this might exist, but having a human staff who can recognize certain situations and gray areas would be helpful. One incident was very troubling. I had a guest staying in my bed with me, a fellow guest of the hostel. Now it may have been bad hostel etiquette to have a guest in my bed, but that doesn't excuse the behavior of the staff. A man came into our room. He clearly wasn't staying in the room, and he didn't say a word while inspecting each bed and guest in the room while they slept. After about 20-30 seconds I decided he had to be staff, but especially for female guests I'd imagine this could be an unsettling experience. He leaned over me and said that I "didn't belong there." I recited my name, bed, and room number and stated that yes in fact I did. He left the room, only to come back 20 minutes later and stare into all of the beds before leaving again. Apparently he went outside to lay in waiting for my guest, who returned in tears saying we were getting fined and that we needed to go to reception. Despite her begging me not to dispute it, he seemed surprised when after being assessed a fine and threatened with having my last night cancelled, I asked why we were being fined when both of us were guests at the hostel. So while he managed to say enough to put my guest into tears, he didn't bother to ask if she was staying at St. Christopher's, which she was. After this "mistake" was realized, not only did he not apologize, he didn't even acknowledge any sort of mishandling of the situation. He insisted that his entering rooms was normal and for him to get ready for check-ins (which is confusing since nobody would be allowed to check in for almost 12 more hours due to the previously stated policy). His rude behavior and the fact that staff members can creep around the rooms at night, along with my other experiences mean I will never stay at any St. Christopher's again and I will not recommend them to anyone. On the other hand, I was very impressed by the 25% discounts on food.
