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!

Hey there, We're really pleased that you hit it off with our staff. It really makes their day when they find out that they've left a lasting impression on any of our guests and we're sure they'll be pleased to read your feedback too! Safe onward travels,


So clean cheap and in such a great location! You can take the bus straight from the airport to just around the corner for only 6€ . I loved the curtains on the bunks for added privacy, bathrooms so clean, and the common room and bar was great way to meet people. Will def stay at St Christopher's again in the future.

Hey, We're really glad that you found us conveniently located. Our helpful team have this info and more if you are worried about how to get to or from anywhere in the city and it's surroundings so make sure you swing by for a chat, or even email in advance, Thanks for your time,


This hostel may seem like a good deal on the outside, but there is a lot of hidden fees. For example, you have to pay to use the computers! The staff were not friendly and the reception is always busy. The bathrooms have a strange mixed bleach smell but they were clean. Good location. Great breakfast. Great maps.


Really large hostel, good facilities and a great atmosphere for if you want to go out. Also the bar has great food where you get 25% off.


This hostel is the best because of its location, but average in almost every other sense. The mattresses in other St. Christopher's locations I've stayed in have been much more comfortable. The one I had was so deflated it was like sleeping on the board underneath. Water pressure in the showers is horrendous as well, and the wifi doesn't work past the second floor - a huge complaint among guests. Overall, it's fine because it's so well located, but don't expect amazing things.


standard party hostel for young flashpackers. central location, has everything you need but its a cookie cutter approach.


Awesome hostel. I couldnt ask for more! Good staff, good food, nice bar, comfortable beds, clean bathrooms, lots of showers, and more


Excellent staff members, especially those working at front desk..The hostel is located closed to city center, and many places are walkable distance. Overrall excellent services, staffs, and location. Only your hostel roommates are the one bothers you most...


The epitome of hostels, a great atmosphere with a mostly young crowd but also a few older people. The facilities are great and very clean. It is definitely more of a party hostel but is still relaxed. The beds offer a personal space thanks to the curtains, and also house a reading light and plug. I had some trouble with my bank and the staff helped in every way they could, allowing me to use the phone and showing me the nearest western union. I would most certainly stay here again.


It´s a fantastic hostel with a superb location! The room is very clean and the staff is friendly. It´s one of the best that I´ve been.


if you want to socialize and meet people, this is the hostel for you. the breakfast was fantastic. great location.


my only real complaint is that the WiFi network is overloaded and difficult to connect to when everyone else is using it. Breakfast is amazing for a hostel; on top of the typical stuff like cereal, juice, and toast, they supply lunch meats, melon, and real, brewed coffee. The bar is also relatively cheap for the location.


Great location! I arrived in the middle of the night and was able to take the 6EUR airport bus almost directly to the hostel. When I arrived everyone was welcoming and helpful and this hospitality continued the rest of my stay. The location allowed me to walk to many points of interest or hop on public transportation. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the free breakfast in the morning was a major perk! I will definitely stay here again.

Hey there man, Great feedback. Thanks so much! We're really pleased that you made the most of our central location, as we know how important it is to be in the heart of all the action and walking distance from most of the major sites, Catch you next time, Cheers,


showers are small and not clean. breakfast is decent, WiFi did not work well. very close to placa catalyna, the metro and las ramblas.


Staff were preoccupied with other things whilst checking me in so it took ages. They didn't give much information about social events and things at the hostel. I had issues connecting to the wifi. Other than that, I enjoyed my stay and I would return

Hello there, Sorry about the technical issues that we were having last week as we upgraded our WiFi - it's safe to say those problems are over now and our recent improvements are already making a world of difference. We'll be sure to pass on your kind words to our staff directly as well, as it makes there day to know they've left a lasting impression on any of our guests, Thanks so much for writing, Happy travels


Only negative thing about this place is that it doesn't have a kitchen. Besides that this place is incredible and would highly recommend to anyone looking to have fun and meet new people. Location is also unreal.

Hey there, Looking at these reviews it looks as if we may not have made ourselves clear enough on our website regarding to limited kitchen facilities that we have here - sorry about that. We have a lot of the basics that you need to warm food, knock up a salad, make a tea or coffee, or heat up some noodles, but unfortunately that's the extent of our offerings in this department. As you mentioned though we have a great location, and are above a super fun bar and restaurant too, Thanks


Second time at the hostel. It's awesome.
