Somebody threw up on the floor in our hallway directly outside of our room. Apparently all of the toilets were clogged. The bed bunks were extremely loud and moving all night-when the top bunk moves, it feels like an earthquake below. The below bed lockers are inconvenient and LOUD for late arriving guests. Staff had overbooked our room to another traveller, which ended up requiring rousting of the entire room to get situated. Our room smelled like a trash room. Lighting needs improvement.
the staff are very friendly, location is prefect, i have a great time there
So clean cheap and in such a great location! You can take the bus straight from the airport to just around the corner for only 6€ . I loved the curtains on the bunks for added privacy, bathrooms so clean, and the common room and bar was great way to meet people. Will def stay at St Christopher's again in the future.
Really large hostel, good facilities and a great atmosphere for if you want to go out. Also the bar has great food where you get 25% off.
This hostel is the best because of its location, but average in almost every other sense. The mattresses in other St. Christopher's locations I've stayed in have been much more comfortable. The one I had was so deflated it was like sleeping on the board underneath. Water pressure in the showers is horrendous as well, and the wifi doesn't work past the second floor - a huge complaint among guests. Overall, it's fine because it's so well located, but don't expect amazing things.
The epitome of hostels, a great atmosphere with a mostly young crowd but also a few older people. The facilities are great and very clean. It is definitely more of a party hostel but is still relaxed. The beds offer a personal space thanks to the curtains, and also house a reading light and plug. I had some trouble with my bank and the staff helped in every way they could, allowing me to use the phone and showing me the nearest western union. I would most certainly stay here again.
my only real complaint is that the WiFi network is overloaded and difficult to connect to when everyone else is using it. Breakfast is amazing for a hostel; on top of the typical stuff like cereal, juice, and toast, they supply lunch meats, melon, and real, brewed coffee. The bar is also relatively cheap for the location.
Great location! I arrived in the middle of the night and was able to take the 6EUR airport bus almost directly to the hostel. When I arrived everyone was welcoming and helpful and this hospitality continued the rest of my stay. The location allowed me to walk to many points of interest or hop on public transportation. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the free breakfast in the morning was a major perk! I will definitely stay here again.

showers are small and not clean. breakfast is decent, WiFi did not work well. very close to placa catalyna, the metro and las ramblas.
Staff were preoccupied with other things whilst checking me in so it took ages. They didn't give much information about social events and things at the hostel. I had issues connecting to the wifi. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay and I would return
wifi never works OK in fourth floor Special thanks to JUDITH and ADRIAN
Only negative thing about this place is that it doesn't have a kitchen. Besides that this place is incredible and would highly recommend to anyone looking to have fun and meet new people. Location is also unreal.
It's missing a kitchen to cook!!!??
St. Christopher's Barcelona is one of the best hostels I have stayed at. The staff are amazing! The facility itself is also one of the cleanest hostels I have been in. Would highly recommend staying here!
I enjoyed my stay here. The location is great, in walking distance to lots of things, and buses to the airport are really close by. I checked in really late so the 24hr front desk was greatly appreciated. The rooms, common areas, and bathrooms were all clean. Breakfast was way better than I expected. All staff that I encountered were friendly and helpful. The only downside of my stay was that wifi was sometimes hit or miss. Other than that, I would totally stay here again.
A great hostel. The bar connected to the hostel was a great place for meeting new people.
Location is perfect The shared bathroom was terrible

great hostel the best hostel in town i love it great time great everything really recomendd
It was phenomenal! I loved everything from the free welcome tapas and sangria to the well maintained bathrooms and rooms. It was bright and airy and just felt clean. The 16 bed dorm felt like a 6 bed dorm by the way it was laid out. The included breakfast also had fresh fruit which was a welcome bonus. I've recommended it to everyone I've met travelling so far.
