I enjoyed my stay at this hostel, but I found the staff very poor! The girl at the reception was grumpy, didn't like to help even I being very smily and so... And they didn't give me good informations :( But if you already know everything what to do and how, the hostel is very good option


Please get a Toaster and larger fridges. Two mini fridges is not sufficient for hundreds of people. The kitchen should be open 24/7 with operating lights.


A great hostel, worth the cash! Fun times ahead!


Nice communal areas (e.g outdoor terrace). Mostly friendly staff. Good location for la ramblas (and the fantastic la boqueria market). Food


The hostel has a cool design and great for partyers, but the staff was very poorly-communicated. We had reserved a room for just the four of us and were told only when we arrived around midnight that we were being put in a room of 8. The next day, they apologized and moved us to a room for the four of us, and later told us that someone else didn't know and put another guest in the room. We were given a free entree (one choice) as compensation.


Perfect location. Too big, too many people. Good facilities, but too much people. No commons areas beside the bar that they have next door (that close) The charge for everything. Better than other St Christopher's, but still one more of the line. I DON'T recommend it (I just booked it because all other hostels were full)


The hostel was in a perfect location in the center of the city, very close to restaurants, shopping, and sights. Most of the staff were friendly, and the rooms were pretty clean. The breakfast was nothing special, but sufficient, with coffee, juice, apples, cereal, bread and jam, etc. We never checked out the connected bar, but it had theme nights that sounded like they would be fun. I'd stay here again!


The 12 Bed rooms were to small.although it was February it was so hot in the morning because almost everyone had a shower and we coudn`t open the door to the balcony. you can`t roll out your locker when the one on the opposite of you is rolled because rooms were to small. a few bed were in second part of the room and they had no daylight. staff tried hard to keep everything clean but most of the guest are not able to clean up after themselfs so bathrooms and kitchen looked horrible.


The best hostel, wow.

Everyone was great! Staff was extremely friendly and helpful and made the experience in Barcelona that much better!


Very nice hostel!


The location is great, very easy to find and closed to everywhere. Staff are great, the rooms are big and the bar is really good.


As is the case with most St. Christopher´s Inns, this was a very good hostel with everything you need. Clean rooms, bathrooms, from top to bottom. Location is quite good as well. Would definitely stay again.


My jacket got stolen from the LOCKED drawer under the bunk beds! Staff at the reception very nice and friendly though. The mattreses need to be changed-too soft to be able to sleep properly. The rooms overlooking the street very noisy (traffic etc.)


St. Christopher's Inn is truly a top-of-the-line hostel experience. Despite being in a room for 16 girls, I felt a lot of privacy due to the curtains on the bunk beds and the reading lights. There were all sorts of great amenities as well, such as a hair dryer installed in the washrooms, a restaurant attached to the hostel with 25% off, and breakfast was better than most other places. It's very high security. You need to swipe your card everywhere - I felt very safe.

Very good hostel! Very secure and friendly atmosphere.The breakfast is not too much variable though and they dont have cooking facilities - only a microwave and fridge in the kitchen. But they have a bar and a cafe with quite normal prices and moreover you get a good discount if you are a guest of the hostel! They give you a towel for free but you need to leave your ID or passport at the reception. And very central location - the better one is difficult to imagine :) Defenetly recommend!

Thank you very much for leaving us a review, we do really care about all our guests feedback. Do you know that we have a upgraded breakfast?, maybe next time you can try it out! See you next time! have fun!!!


The beds have a curtain and their own reading light as well as cages underneath to store things in if you have a lock. Unfortunately the line at reception was always really long so checking in and out took a long time and asking any questions about the city as well. There is a bar/restaurant downstairs with alot of seating and there were 2 microwaves upstairs. Breakfast is included and was fairly good though they tend to pack it up 15 minutes before the end time so get down earlier if you can.

Thank you very much.


Great few days in Barcelona, and the hostel was everything we needed it to be, great location, bar downstairs and some really cool staff working there which made for a really sick trip.
