Great rooms and communal areas-staff let the place down a little but worth booking. Clean rooms with a party vibe. Short walk to la rambla

Great location, but the bathrooms were quite dirty. They smelled bad and looked dirty.

Great location staff were helpful. The curtains were a great idea and made it easier when other roommates returned at different hours. Would happily stay again only issue was the wifi which barely worked

Great hostel definitely would be back. Would be good if the cooked breakfast options were available earlier like other St Chrsitopher's

There is no kitchen or fridge, which proved to be extremely difficult. Definitely not a hostel for solo travellers, but perfect for groups of 3 or more. The location is perfect, and the facilities are great. The curtains on the beds make sleeping in a breeze, but ask for a bottom bunk if possible because the light from the room gets into the top bunks.

I expected more of a St Christopher hostel, compared to the one in Berlin. Atmosphere wasn't very good and Wifi didn't work at all in the room

Nice new hostel right off the Ramblas and close to public transport. Bellushi's food was excellent, too. My one main concern with this hostel was the room keys were a disaster, I had to go up and down from the 5th floor at least 2-3 times a day because my keys stopped working. It was very frustrating and I must have went through a dozen keys in 3 days. Luckily, the staff was very cool about it and easy to get along with.

I had heard about this hostel from friends who absolutely loved it. I found the location to be way too touristy, as La Rambla is packed with tourists and extremely expensive restaurants to appease them. Do not stay on La Rambla. Also if you care about cleanliness

Very well located, comfortable and friendly hostel. Clean enough. I would recommand it. However, I found the breakfast disappointing compared to previous experiences : lack of knives and spoons, some dirty dishes, bad tasting food. Très bon emplacement, confortable, atmosphère sympa. Propre. Je recommanderais cette auberge de jeunesse. Cependant, le petit déjeuner était décevant par rapport à d'autres expériences passées :manque de couvert, vaisselle parfois sale, et vraiment pas très bon.

Pros: breakfast with meats, cheese, bread, cereals, and juice. Very clean. Very secure (maybe too much; you need your key card to operate the lifts). Air conditioning. Perfect location. Lockers. Curtains and individual plugs for each bed. The bar/restaurant is convenient when you don't feel like going out, plus you get a discount for staying at the hostel. Cons: long lines to speak to someone at the desk. The push button showers are annoying. 10 euro towel deposit. Overall, amazing value.

Hostel was really fun, big bar and chill out area downstairs. The prices on the drinks were great. The tapas tour is a blast! You have to do it, you meet some awesome people. The staff is very slow at the front counter, I don't know why, but it takes them 10-15 minutes to process someone's new check-in. Other than that the staff were very cool and helpful. Bathrooms and showers were kinda nasty. Bathrooms reminded me of those at an airport or train station, dirty. Showers have no ventilation.

For how big this hostel is there was never a problem with cleanliness, bathroom resources, noise, or security. Everything was always very clean, the showers were never full, there were big cages to keep your items under the bed, and there was always someone to talk to if you wanted. The location couldn't have been better, it was right in the center of town connected to everything. I would recommend this hostel to any younger traveler looking for a place to rest while exploring Barcelona.

Location and price are good, but the facilities are somewhat lacking. The ladders to the top beds are difficult to climb up and down, especially in the dark. The bathrooms are quite filthy (even for hostel standards), and the the noise is a big problem with drunks coming in at all hours - an expected problem in a hostel this big.

Great hostel but be prepared for a lively atmosphere-can be hard to get a decent night sleep if you need it.
