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.

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.

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

We'll be sure to pass on your kind words to our staff directly as well, as it makes there day to know they've left a lasting impression on any of our guests, Thanks so much for writing, Happy travels

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.

Hey there, Looking at these reviews it looks as if we may not have made ourselves clear enough on our website regarding to limited kitchen facilities that we have here - sorry about that. We have a lot of the basics that you need to warm food, knock up a salad, make a tea or coffee, or heat up some noodles, but unfortunately that's the extent of our offerings in this department. As you mentioned though we have a great location, and are above a super fun bar and restaurant too, Thanks

It's missing a kitchen to cook!!!??

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey there, Thanks for you feedback. It's certainly an idea we've had in the past, but with over 400 beds here it just isn't really viable to have a fully stocked kitchen. We do have microwaves, kettles, cutlery, and plenty of common spaces to eat and chill, as well as fantastic guest only discounts on our already cheap restaurant menu, Good to see you had a nice time regardless, Take care,

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.

Hey there, We know that many travelers like to see more than one hostel when they visit a new city, and we don't blame you for that. But we are super happy that you came back! Thanks for writing,

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.

Hey there, We're really pleased that you picked up on our new and improved free breakfast buffet, which we used feedback from our guest reviews to upgrade and improve for the sake of you who came along after. A perfect example from us learning from your experiences, Keep writing guys! The more you review, the better we get ; ) Cheers
