St Christopher's Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain

21st Aug 2016

Cool Hostel, standard St Christopher's, crowded, basic and not much culture to the place. Bar is always a good place to start, the food and drink is reasonable, but you are in Spain so get out and try some paella/tapas! Had really rude people in our room, who decided to chat most of the night, loudly, so I wasn't impressed with that - the worst night in a Hostel ever. Otherwise fine.

One of the best Hostel's I have stayed at, really enjoyed myself here. Plenty of activities, including food and tours, the staff were outstanding and I stayed longer than initially planned! Granada is very underrated, really cool place and I will be going back again at some point!!

Cool little Hostel, really enjoyed my stay here, although the toilet was blocked in my room; however staff quickly acted. Cool atmosphere, with with beers free in the communal area the night I arrived, bit odd with the no shoes policy, I guess that ensured the place remained clean. Staff were awesome, great help in finding a decent cheese steak or questions about anything Philly!

Nice Hostel, helpful staff, reasonable location - I think April was not the best time to travel by yourself, not many travelers stayed when I was there.

Not a bad place, the fact I didn't get given a room key was a bit odd, meant I was a little uneasy about leaving things in my room. Good staff, must have been quiet time as there weren't many around in hostel. Good spot, plenty to see and do in the viscinity.

Very good Hostel, very good staff, friendly and welcoming. Bar is good with some good deals! Rooms are very tidy, comfortable and the bathrooms are absolute class, best I have seen for a Hosel anywhere with awesome showers for one! Highly recommend this or one of the other branches!

Stayed in a twin with a mate, was a shame we had to almost sleep with eachother... Great start, they picked us up from bus station which was cool. Were able to answer a few questions about Kaunas, then left to own devices. Nice little apartment, had everything you need, obviously not a massive amount of atmosphere but old town isn't too far away.

Really cool place, loads to do, good atmosphere, with welcome shots! Always good. Good location, relatively close to the best sights and sounds in Riga. Loads of activities on offer and the staff were as helpful as anywhere I have ever stayed in Europe. Highly recommend.

Nice Hostel, clean, good staff, relatively close to old town but a good 5-10min walk. Was very good but lacked any atmosphere I thought. Walls were a bit thin, could hear a fair bit next door... Showers were the best I have ever had in a Hostel, oddly they are basically in the bar though...

Cool little hostel in Salzburg. Bar and food are cheap with happy hours etc. Helpful staff, bit of a hike into town but not a huge issue really. Would stay there again if in Salzburg again.

Great place, all the Wombats are but this one in particular was awesome. Massive place, breakfast is available and pretty decent, the bar is really cool, met loads of other travelers there, and the bar staff were really nice/helpful, even got a few jagerbombs off the manager which was especially nice of him... The staff at main desk were very helpful, the rooms were nice too, with very nice ensuites. Great hostel!

Cool Hostel in a cool city. Thoroughly enjoyed the beer garden and the BBQ on offer, good spot to meet new people and pre-drink before the pub crawl, which I also recommend. Helpful staff, nice rooms also. Good Hostel.

Stayed here in late 2009, and loads of in roads made, still got a bit going on with facilities still being sorted... It was annoying not have a shower on my level, the stairs are a bit of a pain but that's no a high issue... The extra curricula activities are very good, Kai (US dude) does a great tour/beet tasting session, make sure you get involved, highly entertaining and fun... The pub crawl is good craic too!!

Not a bad Hostel, helpful staff, shame they are over two sights and I had to stay across the road... The main Hostel was cool, a chilled vibe, good food, which was surprisingly free, and really nice (spaghetti the night I was there), you get breakfast too... Sofia was a pretty cool place, really like it there.
