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!

PROS: Amazing location. Friendly and very welcoming staff! Free sangria with a meet and greet (very handy when traveling alone). I met lots of people! Great atmosphere in the bar! Cheap food downstairs, very yummy and always good portions! CONS: No wifi for anyone in my room. Gross dirty bathrooms, unclean and smelly rooms. No aircon in the room, was SO hot that I got a blood nose! Horrible showers set on a timer. Too much pressure to go on the pub crawls - ended up at a club?

Overall experience was great as the hostel was in an amazing location with a bar/restaurant connected to it that was fantastic for meeting other travelers! Rooms and bathrooms were clean and the curtains over each bed were much appreciated. WiFi was terrible in the rooms but good downstairs in the lobby. Loved my stay at St. Christopher's and would definitely go back!!

The best hostel I stayed at on my RTW trip. Great atmosphere - the events man Marco is a legend. Generous staff. Great bar. The Welcome meeting is a great start to the stay - meeting everyone in the hostel. Rooms were clean and tidy, security was top notch. Couldn't fault this place - just wished i'd stayed longer.

Best hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff is AMAZING and make sure you get the most out of Barcelona. The deals with the bar next door make it a great place to hang out and meet people. THE ATMOSPHERE is the best of any hostel I've stayed in. Rooms were great, bag storage was great. Only complaint was the push button showers, but even that wasn't so bad. If I travel to another city with a St. Christopher's I will definitely stay.

Hey there, We loved your review! Make sure you use the official St Christopher's website if your are travelling onward to any of our other European destinations, as we reward you with huge savings each time you visit : ) Thanks for your amazing review!

Great hostel and great location. Super nice to have your own curtains as well, felt like you can have some privacy even though there are others in the room. Major plus. The showers though are push operated and give you 5 seconds of either hot or cold water depending on how it feels that day. Plus WiFi is super slow . Improve your WiFi and add some handles to the showers so you don't have to press 700 times to take one quick shower and this would be the best hostel in Barcelona by far.

Somebody threw up on the floor in our hallway directly outside of our room. Apparently all of the toilets were clogged. The bed bunks were extremely loud and moving all night-when the top bunk moves, it feels like an earthquake below. The below bed lockers are inconvenient and LOUD for late arriving guests. Staff had overbooked our room to another traveller, which ended up requiring rousting of the entire room to get situated. Our room smelled like a trash room. Lighting needs improvement.

Hello there, It seems as though you had a bit of bad luck during your time here, which is extremely unfortunate and by no means representative of your average hostel experience. It can happen that one of our guests has a little too much to drink and forgets that they are sharing facilities, but we're sure that our 24-hour housekeeping team took care of this during the course of the night, We hope you discussed these issues with our staff who are always ready to help, Thanks for writing

St Christopher's was my first hostel experience and certainly exceeded my expectations. The location is so central and convenient for getting around. The staff asked for our honest feedback and made changes where they could as well as gave useful help when giving directions and travel information. The welcome activities were a bit cheesy but did help to build a community in the hostel. All things considered this was a great place to stay for travel.

I absolutely love this Hostel! Private beds with a curtain, the free breakfast is solid, perfect location, the bar downstairs serves Tapas and Sangria, friendly staff that tries to make your experience in Barcelona fun and safe, and you can easily meet fellow travellers. They also have special discounts on attractions, drinks at the bar, and food. Great common areas, a bus that will take you around Europe, and they even sell converters! Just make sure you bring flip flops for the shower!
