The location is perfect- right around the corner of Las Ramblas, but quiet enough to have a good night sleep. Rooms and bathrooms were clean during my stay, saw cleaning ladies in very different times of day/night. Yes- balcony doors are only opened when room is being cleaned, i hope it is different in the summer. Beds are comfortable and spacious, curtains give you privacy even in dorm rooms. All in all- if you like these big kind of hostels- it's your place to stay!

Great location. Nice dorms. Charging point by the bed with light and curtain. Showers sucked. Free breakfast was good. Average wifi. Helpful staff.
staff is super friendly, which i think determines your trip. i was worried a lot about this hostel after reading a few bad comments on here. i wanna answer some of those comments based on my experience. a. a shared bathroom sucks: partly agree. the shower flow is weak and temp control is not easy. b. breakfast sucks: i disagree. it is average. and you can eat all-you-want. c. security sucks. : i disagree. get good, strong locks then you are on the safe.
It was in a really central area of Barcelona. I only stayed one night but there didn't seem to be that much of a social atmosphere. The breakfast was good with bread, cheese, ham, cereal, and fresh fruit. I also ate at the restaurant which was pretty good and the discount was nice. You do have to pay to store your stuff before/after checkin/out. They also really want to keep your key deposit. I had to ask for mine explicitly. Overall a nice place but nothing special.
The security was good, facilities were also good as they have an elevator in hostel, and curtains for all beds. However the showers and toilets were terrible. A little bit smelly but I can endure it, but the shower water was really weak, it just flows over my head. It was terrible. And only one toilet for an ensuit room, we should wait for people coming out. And the staffs were not very familiar. Anyway the location is quite nice, very close to Catalunya square, la ramblas(?) and the metro.
There wasn't enough showers honestly for the amount of people on my floor. I often showered at odd times. Other than that, it was great, I loved the "pod" beds as it offers a sense of privacy. The internet didn't always work very well but that's what happens when there are a lot of people in a hostel.
The hostel was perfect in every terms, but the staff which seemed to be a bit bored about working. Only one woman and one guy were kind to me, the others answered my questions with impatience as if I was obligated to know everything. On the other requirements, they were perfect.
St Christopher's Barcelona is really excellent, I stayed there for four nights, the first two nights in a room with 16 beds and the rest two nights in a room with 12 beds. Everything, including location, atmosphere, cleanliness, staff and breakfast, is far beyond of my expectation. Next time, I will certainly stay at hostel in a city I travel to.

A good hostel but I expected more after visiting St Christopher's in Brugge
That's a very good hostel in Barcelona!! Their staffs are very good professionals, the place is really confortable and food from the bar is really good.👍👍
The showers smelt mouldy and one of the woman at the desk was always really grumpy. Dorm rooms are perfect though. Size, cleanliness, curtains on beds, individual light and power socket let bed. Really great.
Location is great. Room was clean. Toilets and showers were clean. Breakfast was amazing. Staff were friendly.
Great hostel in Barcelona! Very near to Plaça de Catalunya, the best start point to know this great city!
Great, comfortable, and safe place to stay. I only stayed to catch an early morning flight because I didn't want to stay in the airport for a 10 hour layover. It's a bit far from the airport, but it's easy to walk to from Plaça Catalunya. The staff is very friendly. The bar food is good, plus you get a discount for staying in the hostel. I would love to stay when I return to Barcelona again! ¡Muchas gracias!
Love this place. Too much fun!
This was my second stay here and it was just as wonderful as the first time. This hostel is great for location, meeting people, atmosphere, and much more. I would recommend if you want a great stay in Barcelona. It's close to La rambla and clubs within this area and not too far from the beach. I love this chain !!
This hostel was great value for money, easy to get to from the airport (one bus) and close to the metro station for easy city access. You are literally 2 minutes from las ramblas the main part of town. Clean and safe facilities, no complaints, with exception of no real kitchen but no need when food is so cheap and delicious close by! Will definitely recommend to others.
The large female dorm was filthy, and the bathroom only cleaned after 9pm each night. The shower stall was so small my arms knocked against the sides whilst I washed my hair. Not impressed! Other than that, the place was fairly standard. Staff were ordinary; location and security was excellent.
fun bar on the first level giant hostel so a little hard being a single traveler but I made friends nonetheless right in the heart of all the fun walking distance to every great place to see and have fun clean rooms and big lockers under the beds not great wifi but not terrible breakfast was eh but it's free so you can't really complain overall cool place to stay in the center of the city
We had a very pleasant stay at St. Christopher's- so much so that we extended our stay. The hostel is very clean and Eco friendly. It is good value for money with its excellent buffet breakfast. The only complaint is the lack of fresh air in the upstairs dorms... Can't imagine what it's like in the summer!!
