Good for a party weekend, if you don't mind to sleep in a room without air (they open the windows just for a few hours in the daytime). You need to buy a padlock for the locker. Leaving your luggage after check-out cost you minimum 3,50. For the rate i paid, i can't complain, but there are much better places for 2-3 Euro more per night. There was a girl at the reception, that was the most unfriendly hostel worker i met in 5 years traveling with hostels. Rrrrespect!

Hey, It's great you've left us such a detailed review. We can learn a lot from you, and it's your ideas that drive the changes we make here in the hostel. Rather than discuss such matters in public we've taken a little extra time to write to you in private to hopefully try and understand why you didn't see eye to eye with a member of our team here. Our guys love their jobs and we're positive there's a simple explanation for the misunderstanding there seems to have been, Talk soon. Thanks

This hostel would've been a lot more fun in the busy season, but it was still a decent time. The drinks at the bar are decent priced, but you aren't allowed to have alcohol in your rooms or anywhere else inside the hostel so they basically force you to only drink at the bar before you go out. The bar staff was amazing though, all were a lot of fun and made our time so much more fun. Location was great, pretty centralized to walk to most of the landmarks.

Hey, Thanks for your feedback, and were pleased to read that you enjoyed your time with us - even if it wasn't the busy season, We're glad to read that you hit if off with our staff so well, and we were surprised that it seems you weren't informed about the chill-out lounge on the first floor where many of our guests go to hang out and pre-drink, as you said, Thanks again for writing, and see you in summer we hope

It´s my second experience with St Christopher's, I stayed in Paris and now in Barcelona. I enjoyed the hostel.

Fantastic location, felt very safe walking around at night. Comfortable room however the bathroom could have been a bit cleaner. Good deals at the bar for pre-drinking!

Hey, Great to read that you made the most of our 2-for-1 beer and mixed drinks in our Belushi's bar. As you said, a great place to start and even to end a night out in Barcelona. Hope you took time to chat with our staff too. We often tag along for after parties when we've finished cleaning ; ) See you next time, and make sure you swing by Belushi's in our other European destinations for more good deals and good times

Everything was ok and it was worth what I paid for. The only problem, I guess, was the stench from the female showers. It was soooo bad for one whole day, but it was ok the next day.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Thanks for taking the time to write to us. We're pleased you found our hostel good value for money, but at the same time we're a little concerned to read about your impressions of our showers. Sorry about that. We trust you reported your concerns to our staff who can send cleaners around to some extra tidying 24 hours a day. Our lively hostel hosts 420 people so naturally we have to be extra careful with shared areas. We trust you enjoyed your time with us nonetheless, Thanks again

Front desk workers didn't have the best attitude for a hospitality setting. The dorm en suite bathrooms were a little unclean to my liking and you only get 10 seconds of water in the shower until you have to push the button again. The girls in my room went to bed at like 9pm, so I felt bad trying to get ready to go out at night. I would suggest separating those who are there to go out and those not to please everyone's liking. Other than those minor details it was great. Delicious food also!

Hey, We're pleased that you had a good time with us overall and will certainly be looking into our cleaning of the ensuite facilities to see what improvements can be made. Unfortunately it's hard to tell who will sleep at what time, but our bar is open until 2.30am every day if you want to meet other travelers and locals alike. We're gonna write to you in private to find out a little bit more about your experiences with our staff too if that's ok, Bye for now, And thanks again

This a very well located hostel. Very clean and organized.The bed has a privacy curtain for those times you just want to in a cocoon. It has a bar/restaurant in the lobby which is very good. Great place to meet other travelers. They also organize nights out to clubs. Clubs are not my thing but I heard good things about it. The rooms had a large locker under the bed that was big enough for a tripod a large photo backpack and a 90 Liter backpack. The only thing is I wish they would oil the hinges

Hey, Thanks for leaving such a constructive review. We can learn a lot from your experiences with us and it's your ideas that really do drive the changes we make here in the hostel, Since clubs aren't your thing we hope you made the most out of our welcome meeting, which we do every day to introduce newcomers to the hostel with free sangria and tapas ; ) Thanks again

I am a fan of St. Christopher's Barcelona! Adriano is exceptional on the reception desk...always so helpful and patient, no matter what silliness or rudeness he has to deal with. Location and atmosphere are great at this hostel too. I highly recommend!

Owner Comment (Hide)
What a wonderful review. so nice of you to take the time to write. We'll be sure to pass on your kind words to Adriano himself. We're positively he'll be pleased. And we trust you also enjoyed the company of the rest of our team too. All the best,

Big hostel. Noisy. Bunk beds like metal cages. With your own curtain if you like that sort of thing and are anti-social. Beds are uncomfortable and sag in the middle. They lock the windows at night so there is no air and you may get a headache in the morning. Communal showers and toilets. Much like being in the army I would suspect. Staff seem like they hate their jobs. Common room (sort of) on first floor. Has fridge but no spoons. Wi-fi patchy. Having said that. Good location.

Hello, Some very detailed feedback there and a lot of hard info we can hopefully turn into some positive changes. We'll write to you in person, as generally speaking its your feedback and impressions of our hostel that guide us in improving and upgrading our facilities and services for the benefit of future guests here. Either way we're pleased you enjoyed our central location and trust you had a good experience overall, Cheers for now,

Perfect location, lots going on. Huge bar and a big hostel so lots of people about. Staff were ok.. Forgot that i gave a deposit for my key and the guy on reception conveniently did too, just waved me goodbye. And no kitchen

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey, Great to see you enjoyed the awesome deals and atmosphere in our Belushi's bar. And sorry the confusion with the key deposit. Not all bookings require you to leave one so it can be confusing as to who is owed what. We always put the extras in the charity box anyway so don't worry there ; ) Thanks again for your feedback. We've definitely found some stuff in there we can work with.

Nice localtion, near one of the main streets of the city. But the showers aren't so pratic and someone stolen my friend's balleys. Te bathrooms weren't really clean and the service in the bar are a little slow. But it worth to be there if you want to walk almost the whole city and have a good time.

Owner Comment (Hide)
It was great to see that you made the most of our central location. We know how important it is to be right in the heart of all the action in the city. Having said that we know that theft can sometimes happen here in the streets in Barcelona, and we hope that our staff did everything they could to help your friend. We always do whatever we can to help on these rare occasions when such things happen. We'll send you an email now to follow up ok, Talk soon, and thanks for writing

We only stayed there for two nights, but it was well worth the value. Centrally located, we could walk everywhere. The staff was very friendly and the place was very clean. Great deals at the bar downstairs. I would definitely stay there again!!

Hey there, A really nice review. It's great that you took the time to chat with our team too. Helping you guys out and hanging out with guests in general is by far the best part of this job. Sounds like you're our perfect guest. Good luck with the rest of your trip and come visit again,

어떤 리셉션이 좀 불친절했지만 시설도 좋고 깔끔하고 위치도 좋아서 만족스러웠다

Nice hostel! Modern, clean, comfortable. Bunks have curtains and personal reading lights, which is great! Gear lockers consist of cages under the bed - bring your own lock. Staff friendly, a bar downstairs that does pretty good food. You also get free breakfast, which is a win! Only downside - no free storage of luggage after checkout - you have to pay for a locker (3.50 E for half a day, 5 E for 12 hours) to store your stuff.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey, We're really pleased that you made the most of our additional facilities. All of our team, and our management, are all travelers at heart, so we like to think we know what you guys are looking for when you chose a hostel : ) We also completely understand your point about lockers but we hope you can appreciate the extra security and convenience that those few extra euros cost. It's hard to put a price on peace of mind ; ) All the best, and thanks for your constructive review.

We only stayed one night for a stop over, had a plane at 6.30am rhe night bus for the airport is just around the corner. Both of us had a really nice pub meal for only 12€ (together) the staff were helpful with printing, buses, they even had a security guy out the front at 2,30am. Was great!

Hey, Thanks for writing. Such a shame you couldn't stay longer, but at least you know where you'll be coming if you ever visit again. We're glad that you had a chat with our door staff too. They're super nice guys and have told us that for them the hostel job is the best job ever : ) Cheers

you cannot access terraces, they are closed permanently. both lounges has no wifi. food looks & sounds good but I was sick twice because its factory food (jars/cans) put together by school leavers, no chef. keycards fail on doors daily.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey, I seems as though we have fallen short of your expectations in a few areas and that's never nice for us to read. We want all of our guests to fully enjoy there stay with us. We're going to write to you privately to get to the bottom of these issues. But just so you know, our chefs are of course fully qualified, our products fresh and locally sourced, and our terraces temporarily closed for a refurb. Either way it's a real shame that you didn't enjoy your experience here. Thanks,

This is the perfect location if you are planning to do all the tourist attractions in Barcelona! The hostel also has a good atmosphere and my room itself was clean. However, the wifi would only work for one of my friends that travelled in our group, and the shower room was disgusting. I was there Halloween weekend though, so that may have been part of the problem. Overall it's a good value for your money if you're staying in the city for a short time and want to be close to everything!

One of the nicest, cleanest, most modern and spacious hostels I've ever experienced.

There was a ton of space which was awesome, except they closed part of the fun downstairs area at an early hour and the bathrooms got kind of gross towards the end of the weekend.
