Great location,I walked everywhere with ease. The staff was friendly and helpful and having the restaurant/bar in the building was nice. It also offered a good way to meet people. I felt like the bathrooms/showers were fairly well maintained, considering how often they were used. My only complaint would be that the room was very warm and stuffy, and you cannot open the windows, it made it hard to sleep at times. I would definitely book again, and recommend to others.

Excellent, I-ve stayed in other StChristophers and this is far the better, good facilities, really good location near Placa de Catalunya, staff is charming as hell, breakfast included with jam, cheese, bread and juice, very nice. Didnt try the welcome tapas and sangria, showers with hot water, wifi works in the whole building, a basic but OK kitchen, bar separated from guests area. Definetely would stay here again.
Great hostel walking distance to everything fantastic city i recommend the free walking city tour leaves from the hostel. Very clean well organised yummy breakfast would return in a second!
i think it would be good if there is some coin changing machine at the locker area and there is no change so need to give exact. I tried to change coin from the staff but after talking to them for a while before he willing to change for me.
+ good security + friendly staff +location - come early to breakfast, otherwise no knifes, no bread, no apples - ask twice in reception for opening the window in the night in the room, otherwise you will be dead by the hot - poor wifi internet signal
I thought keeping luggages for free for leaving customers is a MUST! I dont understand why they charge SO MUCH for lockers! Facilities are clean and nice but there is only ONE washroom for a 12 people dorm. It is very good to have curtains for every bed but not so good if you want to social.
Security was great! I liked that we needed to use our key cards at several points. Could be a hassle, but I felt safe. Location was pretty good and safe. It was nice to be right by the Rambles. If I had spent more time there it would have been a hike for anything else, but I guess anywhere in Barcelona is a bit of a hike. Quite clean - but main bathroom smelled a little. But rooms/beds didn't so that was a plus. And the breakfast was decent enough quality. Would DEFINITELY recommend to anybody!
Would be better if the cleaner cleaned the room better as she left the puddle of water to dry , but overall , this is really a nice hostel, with sumptuous breakfast~ I mean really really good breakfast~ Friendly staff, have a post box in the hostel, that's really cool! STAY HERE! right in the center of Barcelona, everything is just within reach!
This hostel was really clean, the curtains on bunks was great for privacy and the lockers were big enough to fit my entire suitcase. The location was so central and it was nice having the bar downstairs.
Secure hostel and in a good location. However it was too rowdy, loud, and full of people for my taste. This is not the type of hostel to stay in if you want to see local culture--more for partying and going out. Located in a very central area, very good for metro travel.
I have been in this hostel for few day and I didn't see the bathroom cleaned.
The location of the hostel is really great, only 50m to Placa de Catalunya. The bar, belonging to the Hostel, is a nice place to meet other people from the hostel. The rooms are clean and the staff is nice. The only downside was, that we couldn't open the windows and thus it was quite hot in our room.
Had a great time her! Dorm rooms were nice in that you had a huge locker for your stuff, and your bed had a curtain, reading lamp, and electrical outlet. Definitely a party hostel. The bar was nice with decent food that was about 7-9 euro, but you got 25% off of that. Cheap alcohol. Ping pong table, pool table, lots of places to sit and many tv's. Breakfast was just average, nothing special. Location was incredible, 2 minutes to metro and la rambla, 20 min walk to the beach. Highly recommend!

This Hostel is well located and offers everything you need. Some of the reading lights didn't work but the breakfast was really nice.
I enjoyed my stay at this hostel, but I found the staff very poor! The girl at the reception was grumpy, didn't like to help even I being very smily and so... And they didn't give me good informations :( But if you already know everything what to do and how, the hostel is very good option

Please get a Toaster and larger fridges. Two mini fridges is not sufficient for hundreds of people. The kitchen should be open 24/7 with operating lights.
A great hostel, worth the cash! Fun times ahead!
Nice communal areas (e.g outdoor terrace). Mostly friendly staff. Good location for la ramblas (and the fantastic la boqueria market). Food
The hostel has a cool design and great for partyers, but the staff was very poorly-communicated. We had reserved a room for just the four of us and were told only when we arrived around midnight that we were being put in a room of 8. The next day, they apologized and moved us to a room for the four of us, and later told us that someone else didn't know and put another guest in the room. We were given a free entree (one choice) as compensation.
