Arrived there in July this year with 3 of my friends. Really enjoyed the atmosphere of the place, always had something planned for the night time. Really good location if your keen on eating and drinking and partying.

The actual hostel staff were great - but whoever they have employed as their party planner/organiser is less than useless. Took us an hour and a half to get to the club they had planned because they made us walk/catch metro. I understand we paid €7 but I don't think one person had a satisfactory experience. Everyone was dripping in sweat and left a ridiculously sour taste in my mouth. When we would ask for the address after them telling us to go ahead we were told no you can't have the address.
The staff was really disengaged and it was really loud at nights with usually men yelling in the hallways for a couple of hours. In the toilets only one sink worked . In the showers the hairdryer didn't work but did like to spark and try to catch fire.
The location is awesome the bar is excellent and the air con in the rooms in suberb.the wifi is not great but who needs that when uve got plenty of people to talk 2.
We left our luggage stored as we arrived to the hostel before check-in. When we tried to open the storage, it was blocked, and we had to WAIT FOR 1,5 HOURS to get someone open it. It was half our fault as we stuffed two person's stuff inside. We still were very pissed off and asked for some compensation. At that point, the hostel manager (?) blamed us about breaking his locker, even though we didn't break anything. He didn't even say sorry for the inconvenience. Otherwise, the stay was good.
Having curtains on each bed is an excellent idea! Spacious dorm room with sofa. Large storage area underneath the bed. Breakfast is okay. Toilet and shower room is good. Remember to prepare some coins if you have to put your luaggage in the locker after check-in.
Great hostel to meet new people. On your first night there is a welcome dinner, well it's really a glass of sangria and a few small tapas. But otherwise great to meet new people. Rooms were ok, toilets and shower were quite small though and the water stopped every 20 seconds. Very annoying when wanting to wash your hair but other than than it was quite a convenient location and lockers were a pretty decent size. Don't stay here if you are wanting to sleep before 1am. No one goes out before that
It's hard to fault this hostel really. Everything is beyond immaculate, drinks at the bar are reasonably priced when you take advantage of the specials, and the food was also super awesome. The nights out organised by the hostel ranged from amazing (opium) to ordinary (Shoko), so do your research on what club they're pushing for that night. Also be aware that it is a large hostel and it really does have that large hostel vibe to it as well.
The bathrooms smelled very bad & can't have been cleaned often as there was a clump of hair on the floor for at least 3 days. No kitchen to cook your own good - trying to get people to buy food at their bar. The beds were ok, good pillows. Difficult to mingle as a solo traveller as there is only the bar environment to meet people, and it definitely feels like a bar, not a common room. Great great location right on placa de catalunya, but I wouldn't stay again.
The hostel was very well located and had a nice bar. It was clean and they organised several events, of which they especially promoted the welcome meeting at 8pm to meet new people (you get free drinks and some tapas and it's a nice way to meet people) and the going out to clubs. However, the staff in general seemed very reserved to me and distanced, i felt like they merely did their work, but weren't having so much fun. They hardly smiled and also didn't promote well their events and facilities
SUCH a great experience! I absolutely loved this place. I was travelling alone and it was so easy to meet people at this hostel, very good with the welcome meeting every night, a good way to meet people. Staff was really friendly and helpful! And the location was just perfect! Close to everything, but quete in the night! Will definetly come back!!!
Loved the curtains across the beds for a little bit of privacy. Free breakfast was nice enough and the two free coffee machines made it even better! You can't beat the location! Nice, modern, clean facilities and building
This is the most amazing hostel I have ever stayed at. The atmosphere is amazing. The adjoining cafe/bar is great. All the staff are so helpful. It really made my stay in Barcelona so much better. I have already recommend this hostel to friends who I know are going to Barcelona soon.
One of the best hostels I've stayed at, loved it here and wanted to stay longer. The only thing I can fault is the kitchen facilities, would've been good to have a cook top to make meals but can't complain. The hostel restaurant is pretty cheap and a great place to hang out.
Great location. The staff were friendly and helpful. Great atmosphere and space available. We stayed in a 12 bed dorm, the curtains around each bed gave a little privacy and the roll cages under the bunks were secure. Would stay here again.
Staff very efficient and helpful, the location is fantastic, and the beds actually very comfortable considering we only paid €15 for a night in June!! When returning to Barcelona I would definitely book this hostel If coming with friends.

It was very easy to find the hostel and once you find it you never wanna leave. The city itself is amazing and St Christopher's makes it even better. You have everything you need. A clean room, nice beds with privacy, a bar, good location, nice staff. Especially the morning team when you check in :) I will totally stay here again because 2 night weren't enough!
This hostel was great. Perfect location. Topped the St. Christopher's in Paris. The welcome meeting each night is the perfect way to meet people once you arrive in the city.
One of the best hostels I've stayed in. Everything was very clean and I loved how each bed had its own curtain. The bar downstairs was awesome as well, very easy to meet people.
