I simply love all the st schristophers...
Excellent hostel, new, clean, everything you usually need is there.
I love the lay out and the security cards. I felt very safe.
The only thing is that rooms are a bit small but I think it's not a big deal.

Incredibly fun hostel! Went there on my own, and easily got to know a bunch of fun people. Everyone is very welcoming, staff and guests as well. I stayed at a shared ensuite room with 11 other girls, and the room was very nice, spacious and clean, though there's only the beds in the room. A very safe hostel, and perfectly located. Overall an amazing stay there, and great value for money!
Hi, 4 of us spent 3 nights in 8 Female Dorm and we can not complain. One of the bests hostels i have stayed in. Clean room and duvets, comfy beds, ok shower room and toilets, quiet nights sleep. Really basic breakfast but you can't expect no matter what on the price you paying:) Just one tiny thing: please provide forks and teaspoons - Thank you very much:)
I really enjoyed staying at this hostel and thought it was an absolute bargain for what you get. The beds had curtains for privacy, under bed cages for luggage and a light and charge point for each bed. Bellushi's bar downstairs was really lively and good for meeting people, breakfast was good, everything was clean, staff were great (the majority at least!). The only downer was the lack of kitchen facilities and unclear rules about drinking in the common areas...some staff say yes, some say no.
The hostel was great! Just needs to fix its showers!! No pressure or heat! Everything else was good though!
Great hostel RIGHT where you want to be in Barcelona, in the heart of everything. Friendly staff, everything in walking distance, great wifi. Free breakfast - everything you expect from the St Christopher's chain. Only annoying thing was the showers kept going hot to cold ... But the rest was excellent :)
Overall a good hostel, large cage lockers and privacy in large dorm rooms. Lots of bathrooms etc however hot water on showers wasn't so flash. Staff were friendly and very helpful. Good location for the city. Best hostel breakfast I've had so far! Only negative was the poor kitchen facilities. Only a very small kitchen with only a microwave, not very suitable for such a large hostel! Great for travelling in a group, perhaps a bit too big for solo travellers wanting to meet people.
The hostel is excellently located, well designed. I like bed privacy.I appreciaed the maintainence staff Marco´ great patience help me to solve the spanish words technical instructions (which I could not possibly understand), to start my new computer, I am impressed with this experience. Thankful for St.Christopher Hostel spirit. I do not like shower, no tube, but cold or hot water right to head and face uncomfortably.
I have stayed there three times now. Everything about the place is exceptional the only thing that is one of the worst i have every had the pleasureto experiance is the showers!! They are push button, which is fine im all for water conservation, but they are a dribble and they dont even run hot. So disappointing but i have stayed there three times so i shouldnt really complain....but they are soooo bad!
Location is great. Hate the cold showers. Staff really help me
The water was cold in the showers. The staff were very unfriendly, they did not make any effort to make me feel comfortable. I did not enjoy my experience in this hostel.
I was nervous going to Barcelona on my own but was very assured when I saw the hostel and realised how secure it was. You couldn't even get to your floor without your card key. The staff are friendly, the rooms are nice and the bar is really lovely. The place was much bigger than I expected and is perfect if you're going with a big group of people. You may want something a bit smaller and more intimate if traveling on your own.
I think it's the best hostel I've stayed at. It was my second visit and I would totally chose to stay there again. Staff is amazing, rooms are cosy and clean. Great atmosphere in the bar downstairs. 100% recommend.
Really great location, clean rooms, very nice stuff ))
Best location although the hostel is too big and too difficult to meet people. Cold showers which was a bit annoying also. The free breakfast was a bonus and the staff were nice.
