I liked the breakfast and the barbar and the curtains. The staff was very unfriendly and the atmosphere itself was very annonym as well.

The staff is not humain people, they are just machine ( especially the day team ). You pays for a room but you can't get it before 2 PM and you have to pay superexpensive locker to wait during this time ! And they write on the web site "kitchen" but it's only 2 micro waves...

I was robbed inside my room in this hostel. Someone who had access to the room broke my locker and stole my nikon camera, 2 ray bans, money and clothes. There were only other 3 people in the room, and the staff could easily had checked the cameras, but they did nothing. I had to call the police and had no support at all from the staff. They pretty much said that this happens often and there is nothing they can do. But when you are robbed INSIDE the room, the hostel is liable. Dont stay there

Awesome hostel! Right on La Rambla, wonderful free breakfast, nice staff! It is quite a ways from the beach, but that is my only thing that I wish I could change! They have bed curtains and cages to lock up your stuff (bring your own lock) and a restaurant that is connected with discounts for guests! Overall a nice hostel!

I really enjoyed and was impressed about that place. They have bicycles and a discount for the bar next door which was great. I would just suggest few things, 1. the towels have to be at each bed upon arrival 2. they should sell at the reception post stamps. I strongly recommend this place and hope to be back again...

Hello there, We're pleased you took the time to leave us such a balanced review, and great to see you decided to explore by bike - a great idea for a city with weather like Barcelona's ; ) Our towels are of course free to borrow, but we keep them at the front desk so there's no unnecessary wastage. We do actually sell stamps tool, but that's our fault for not making that clear to you at check-in. Sorry about that, Thanks again for your valuable feedback

This place was horrible. When we arrived a bloodied girl was in the foyer being kicked out by security. The girl at reception was rude. When we got to our room our beds were unmade. We were moved rooms but this process took over 20 mins. The showers were disgusting and either freezing cold or scalding hot. The area was central but dodgy. This place was really bad and I'm usually easily pleased. Check out my other reviews. Don't stay here!!!

Having stayed at other St. Christopher's hostels around Europe my friend and I were not disappointed by the Barcelona site. We were greeted by a very friendly Xavier on reception who helped us with questions about the city and also the hostel. We were also really well looked after by Bimbi (hostel manager). Our en-suite twin room was clean, quiet and modern. Thanks to all the friendly staff who made the experience memorable. I can't wait to stay here again in the future!!!

Nice dorms, beds have curtains for privacy. Clean bathrooms. Having the bar and food right there was good, nice little discount if your staying at the hostel. Very close to the old town

Very good price for what you get. The bar that is connected to the hostel has great food and drinks, at a good discount for hostel guests. The staff were friendly but not very helpful when I asked questions, didn't give me any specifics.

We absolutely loved this hostel, first hostel we had ever stayed in and it was super clean, friendly and secure. We loved the curtains for each bed, the lockers underneath, although they were a pain when two people opposite wanted theirs out as well, breakfast was good and staff at belushis were amazing especially Raki who told us where to go and what to do. Tapas and sangria were good also and the promoter always has some good deals!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey, Such a great list of positive remarks that it's hard to know where to begin. We've already passed on your kind words to Raki, an she and the rest of the team will be well pleased to know that you took full advantage of the hostel's daily welcome meeting, at which we offer our guests free sangia and tapas, and offer the opportunity to get to know our crew and other fellow travellers, Thanks again for such a detailed review. It really helps other guests know what we're all about ; )

Great atmosphere- a lot of expats seem to hang out at the bar at night which is cool too. The location is perfect. You can get to anywhere from it. Was recommended to it by a friend and would recommend it again. Cheers

Hello there, Very cool that you got to meet the whole range of people who hang out in our bar; from expats to locals, backpackers to sports fans. Our Belushi's bar really is a melting pot for cultures, much like our awesome hostel itself, Next one is on us!

Unlike other hostels I've stayed in, upon checking in the staff did not give me a run down of that facility. Other than the bar, there was no common area to hang out in.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey there, It's a real shame that you weren't made aware of our building's many common "chill-out" spaces where we have a kitchenette, laundry facilities, luggage storage and heaps of comfy couches. It's good to see you found your way to the bar at least, We'll be sure to pass on this to our front desk staff though, as we can all learn from your comments and time spent here, Thanks for writing,

Pretty average place to stay. The bar at attached was convenient.. I did not know there was a common area on the first floor until another guest told me, perhaps the staff should share these things. Defiantly a hostel. You get what ou pay for. Breakfast was ok, but there was never enough plates or cups or food and a huge line.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hola, Great to see you took advantage of our bar and common areas. It's what we like to see, Our fantastic free breakfast buffet has had a well-received ramp lately but we can certainly use your comments to continue to develop it further, as we know just how important a full stomach is when you've a busy day site-seeing ahead, or in your case just trying to kick that Barcelona hangover ; ) Thanks again for writing,

Generally i enjoyed staying at the hostel. Breakfast was great, and the bed was very comfy. But when i arrived the room was not clean at all, although it was a minute after check in started that day. In addition, the push-to-have-water button in the shower really makes taking a shower furstrating. And last thing which wasnt the best is the atmosphere... The hostel feels a bit like a big human storage... No personal relation, many many people with not a lot of communication in between. I visited

We are sorry about that, We're going to write privately to find out more about your thoughts on the general ambiance here, as this is not something we hear complaints about often, Talk soon,

Overall, I liked this hostel. Location was great. Staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms & lockers were really nice but the bathrooms were never clean.

Tres cosas importante para destacar: 1- un olor insoportable en los cuartos, No tienen ventilación, tuve que pedir cambio de cuarto y aún así en el otro seguía habiendo un olor espantoso 2- el wifi es pésimo en todo el hostel , se cae la red contantemente y en los cuartos directamente no llega la señal 3- el desayuno deja mucho que desear, el café malo, pocas frutas, los fiambres tmb muy malos.

Amazing atmosphere down in the communal area! Nice rooms but wifi doesn't work in them! Breakfast was very nice, the nicest I've had yet! Only thing I could say about it was that the communal area shut at 11pm! After this time we had to move to the bar area where there was limited seating so was a bit crowded! Which I didn't understand! But overall very good value for money and the location was very good!

Hey there, We're really pleased to read that you made the most of our many communal "chill-out" areas, but to be honest we like to shut them down at a reasonable hour out of respect for some of our other guests who may have early starts the next day. As you said though, our restaurant and bar are open late, and is nice and lively for those of our guests who want to party a little harder, Thanks for your feedback,
