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
Really enjoyed the amount of activities that the staff and facilities provide. It made it very easy to meet new friends! Very clean and comfortable.
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.
Very much known for partying, but it is a good place to get to know other travellers. Barcelona is a big city so you can't always walk everywhere, but this location was good. Nearby was the Placa Catalunya and Las Rambles. Really enjoyed this place.
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.

Really good hostel clean,friendly,good price good breakfast
Great stay in Barcelona! Marc Anthony was awesome and created an inclusive and fun environment!
Great location, although a bit noisy if you're not interested in partying. Most people in our room would arrive around 3am or 4am every day. Breakfast is included and it's a good breakfast, but they should improve the cleanliness of the plates, knives and forks: they looked super dirty, with dirt and food attached to them. It was gross.
Amazing!! Worth staying at any St. Christopher's Inns.
Wifi wont work. Never. At any place.

Loved the location, especially if you don't know Barcelona well! Bar downstairs is great for meeting people, made some good friends at this hostel!! Great if you want to party but also found it respectful if you want an early night for sightseeing
Amazing hostel! Couldn't fault anything. It's in a really great central location, the rooms and bathrooms are kept clean, the under the bed lockers make you feel safe about your stuff and the curtains on the beds for added privacy were an excellent touch. We especially liked the bar/restaurant next door, great food for great prices and a really good place for people in the hostel to hang out and meet each other. Would definitely stay again!
