We absolutely loved this hostel, first hostel we had ever stayed in and it was super clean, friendly and secure. We loved the curtains for each bed, the lockers underneath, although they were a pain when two people opposite wanted theirs out as well, breakfast was good and staff at belushis were amazing especially Raki who told us where to go and what to do. Tapas and sangria were good also and the promoter always has some good deals!

Hey, Such a great list of positive remarks that it's hard to know where to begin. We've already passed on your kind words to Raki, an she and the rest of the team will be well pleased to know that you took full advantage of the hostel's daily welcome meeting, at which we offer our guests free sangia and tapas, and offer the opportunity to get to know our crew and other fellow travellers, Thanks again for such a detailed review. It really helps other guests know what we're all about ; )

Great atmosphere- a lot of expats seem to hang out at the bar at night which is cool too. The location is perfect. You can get to anywhere from it. Was recommended to it by a friend and would recommend it again. Cheers

Hello there, Very cool that you got to meet the whole range of people who hang out in our bar; from expats to locals, backpackers to sports fans. Our Belushi's bar really is a melting pot for cultures, much like our awesome hostel itself, Next one is on us!

Unlike other hostels I've stayed in, upon checking in the staff did not give me a run down of that facility. Other than the bar, there was no common area to hang out in.

Hey there, It's a real shame that you weren't made aware of our building's many common "chill-out" spaces where we have a kitchenette, laundry facilities, luggage storage and heaps of comfy couches. It's good to see you found your way to the bar at least, We'll be sure to pass on this to our front desk staff though, as we can all learn from your comments and time spent here, Thanks for writing,

Pretty average place to stay. The bar at attached was convenient.. I did not know there was a common area on the first floor until another guest told me, perhaps the staff should share these things. Defiantly a hostel. You get what ou pay for. Breakfast was ok, but there was never enough plates or cups or food and a huge line.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hola, Great to see you took advantage of our bar and common areas. It's what we like to see, Our fantastic free breakfast buffet has had a well-received ramp lately but we can certainly use your comments to continue to develop it further, as we know just how important a full stomach is when you've a busy day site-seeing ahead, or in your case just trying to kick that Barcelona hangover ; ) Thanks again for writing,

Generally i enjoyed staying at the hostel. Breakfast was great, and the bed was very comfy. But when i arrived the room was not clean at all, although it was a minute after check in started that day. In addition, the push-to-have-water button in the shower really makes taking a shower furstrating. And last thing which wasnt the best is the atmosphere... The hostel feels a bit like a big human storage... No personal relation, many many people with not a lot of communication in between. I visited

Hey there, A lot of detailed info in your review for us to get stuck into. It's your ideas that drive the changes we make, Firstly, we're extremely pleased that you enjoyed your stay overall, and we appreciate your understanding regarding the housekeepers running a few minutes behind schedule. We are sorry about that, We're going to write privately to find out more about your thoughts on the general ambiance here, as this is not something we hear complaints about often, Talk soon,

Location was 10 minute walk to La Boqueria (MUST GO TO THIS FOOD MARKET) and 1 minute walk from nearest metro stop. It's easy to find from the airport, and near a lot of shopping stores. Very friendly staff, and great place to meet awesome people

Overall, I liked this hostel. Location was great. Staff was very nice and helpful. The rooms & lockers were really nice but the bathrooms were never clean.

Tres cosas importante para destacar: 1- un olor insoportable en los cuartos, No tienen ventilación, tuve que pedir cambio de cuarto y aún así en el otro seguía habiendo un olor espantoso 2- el wifi es pésimo en todo el hostel , se cae la red contantemente y en los cuartos directamente no llega la señal 3- el desayuno deja mucho que desear, el café malo, pocas frutas, los fiambres tmb muy malos.

Amazing atmosphere down in the communal area! Nice rooms but wifi doesn't work in them! Breakfast was very nice, the nicest I've had yet! Only thing I could say about it was that the communal area shut at 11pm! After this time we had to move to the bar area where there was limited seating so was a bit crowded! Which I didn't understand! But overall very good value for money and the location was very good!

Hey there, We're really pleased to read that you made the most of our many communal "chill-out" areas, but to be honest we like to shut them down at a reasonable hour out of respect for some of our other guests who may have early starts the next day. As you said though, our restaurant and bar are open late, and is nice and lively for those of our guests who want to party a little harder, Thanks for your feedback,

Firstly I stayed 4 nights after then I extended to 1 more night. Actually I loved it, and people too. They have great environment. I mean I met a lot of people in there. Example from Usa, Austria, England and many more. Gracias

Excellent hostel! One of my favorites. Decent location, great services, wonderful staff, awesome facilities. The breakfast is great and the value is great. St Chris' can be counted on at any of their locations! I highly recommend this place!

Nice hostel. Outlets right by the beds. Wifi is quick but can be spotty in the rooms. Only concern is they give the keys away to anyone without having to show identification.

Hey there, It was good of you to take the time to write to us : ) We're glad you approved of the additional facilities in our dorms and we'll be sure to look into the wi-fi to ensure that the range is tight, We've a fairly rigid system in place for giving out new keys, but then again, a lot of our staff develop personal relationships with many of our guests and loosen up a little around familiar faces. We see it as a good thing, but we see your point. Will try not to get too lax, Thanks

Perfect location, perfect bar and lounge! Mattresses could be better. Breakfast included its a plus. Friendly atmosphere.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hello, A nice fair review you've left us here. We really appreciate the honest feedback, We're really pleased you enjoyed our bar and lounge, and hope you met plenty of other travellers in there too : ) We'll be sure to look into the mattresses in your room, as we're always looking to upgrade our facilities for the sake of our future guests, All the best,

I did not have a good stay at St. Christopher's in Barcelona. The room smelled very gross, the hair dryer did not work, the hot water did not work, and the atmosphere was really strange because there was some kind of frat party wherein men were dancing on each other half-naked in the common room (not too keen to be around that!). When I spoke to the staff about the hot water and hair dryer they did not care at all and made no effort to pretend! Will not be going back.

Hey there, It's a real shame that your holiday was seemingly overshadowed by another group. We really do our best to accommodate all types of groups, but it's no reason to tolerate bad behaviour and we trust you let our security know about the situation with the boys on your floor. Sorry about the facilities in the bathroom on your floor as well. We do have cleaners working around the clock, but it seems as though it may have been a particularly wild night. Talk to you shortly,

Hello! We're really pleased to see your comments about our awesome free breakfast. We've recently put a lot of time and money into upgrading this and we're glad it seems to show. We know just how important it is to have a full stomach before a busy day of sightseeing, or just to kick that Barcelona hangover, Thanks heaps for your kind words

Well.. Compared with other hostel in bcn based on my prior experience, this place seems to be way too modernized for me :( everything had to be paid by machines. Plus, restrooms are in the room, very near the bed. and the shower tap is really annoying so i was going to have to press it every minute to take shower...

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey there, Thanks for getting back to us, We appreciate there are many sorts of travellers and we can learn a little from each. Many of our guests appreciate our modern, eco-friendly facilities, but we also know how important the human touch is as well and always encourage our guests to come down for a chat at the front desk with us too, Thanks again, and hope to see you again somewhere down the line,
