If there's no eating in the lounge, please post a sign. I was rudely lectured by a tall guy with facial hair. I bought outside food&ate it in the lounge instead of the bar because it's deemed rude to eat your food in another establishment. I was thirsty&as I had already paid for breakfast from the bar, I went down to get a drink.That's when the guy rudely told me I can't bring my drink up. I didn't mind that he said I can't take the drink up, I didn't like that he was mean about it.
This hostel was so good. I didn't know if hostels got better in the last few years or it was just this one. But it might just be this one. Staff were great and really helpful. Place was clean and you get a full breakfast in the morning which you probably wouldn't be able to get for any less than what the hostel cost. Don't be fooled by the price, this is one of the cleanest and nicest hostels I have stayed in.

Love St Christopher's! The best location!
Very happy with the accommodations - and the location was perfect! Very nice beds and I loved the ensuite bathrooms.
Good, clean hostel. Spacious rooms. Charging point next to each bed and cosy mattresses, with curtans on each bed. The breakfast is elaborate with cornflakes, milk, fruits, bread, etc. They have a good bar, with a 25% off for in-house guests.. location is very good.. close to city square. We stayed here for one night and it was a good, pleasant stay.
We didn't know what to expect. Having stayed at the St. Christopher's in London and not liking it, we were trying to avoid going to another St. Christopher's. But the pictures looked so great! So we caved, and just booked it. And I'm so happy we did! The location is absolutely perfect! It was spotless, the breakfast was good, and the staff were helpful. It is definitely good bang for your buck! Would return in a heartbeat!
Very nice location and good breakfast and clean. Especially,I liked breakfast!!!
In general is a good place, but have to improve the attendant! The bathrooms need be clean more frequently. Everytime the trash was full and the place of showers have a bad smell. The girl about the bed above of me spilled an smelly liquid in the wall (or whatever it is, I prefer not to imagine, perhaps vomiting) and go out. I asked (kindly) to the cleaning attendant if she can clean it, she said that will do, but finished the cleaning and go out without do anything about this.
It was perfectly located for all the main sites in Barcelona and the tour buses as well for the city. The hostel was very clean and I really liked that the beds were closed off by curtains, so you felt like you has your own space in the room.
No proper kitchen or living room for the guests. Only a microwave and a tiny oven. It is impossible to cook there. Not being able to stay in the common areas after 23pm is really a shame. There are times you just want to stay inside and talk to your friends, but that there was not an option. I could not drink my drinks in the bar, nor could order to eat in the "living room" in the first floor. The staf is poorely trained and assigned me a room that was already full. That is a big security issue.
Best hostel I have ever stayed at. Was supposed to have stayed there for five nights, ended up staying there for two weeks. The nightlife is awesome!
What a great place to stay in Barcelona. Just a block from both the metro and regional, the whole city is at your fingertips; that is if you decide not to just walk down La Rambla or any of the other awesome streets that will take you to the beach or a restaurant within minutes of the hostel. The beds are comfy, showers hot and noise pretty quiet all things considered. Two recommendations: The hot wing challenge at Bulushi's and Teresa Carles restaurant just down jovellanos st both awesome.
Great location, great bar and great atmosphere. One of the best hostels I have stayed in. Period.
12 bed dorms have very uncomfortable stairs on bunks, 2 bathrooms for 12 girls can be tricky at times!
Great accommodation for a few days in Barcelona. The atmosphere is unique and services are all top notch! Hostel neat, clean and very well organized. It will be my point of reference for future trips to the city. 10 +++++++
new hostel, clean hostel, kind staff ! but they have some uncomfortable things. We can not find Wi-Fi signals in the room(not all rooms but many rooms). and sometimes no hot water !!!!!! and we can not use any tables at night. and Lack of cooking utensils !
This hostel especially nice in female dormitory rooms, that is a little bit more space, than the common dormitories which is quite crowd. The design of bed is good with curtain so have some privacy. I do not like the shower, water is little, right top above head, There is one maintaince staff Marko who is very nice to help me computer problem. otherwise staffs of front desk are ok, quite official distant feeling, Conculsion this hostel is commercial, lack of warm atmosphere.
St. Christopher's is the only hostel I have stayed in that has managed to combine great facilities with great atmosphere. The staff is amazing and helpful, the lounge areas are clean and comfortable and the bar area is has great food and cheap drinks. I would recommend these hostels to anyone.
