Hostelworld says

St Christopher's Barcelona is a clean, modern, spacious and stylish hostel set in a beautifully renovated building. Hostelworld guests have given it high ratings for its location in central Barcelona, right across from the airport drop-off point, saying it is 'very central, yet not too noisy, and easy to get to'. We particularly like that each of their bunks has a power socket, personal light and dark curtains so you can have a comfy snooze.

Property Description

COVID 19 Policy Update.
In response to Coronavirus (COVID-19), additional safety and sanitation measures are currently in effect at this property, including social distancing and in-house disinfection.

Located at the top of Barcelona’s infamous La Rambla and directly opposite the official airport transfer drop-off point at Plaça de Catalunya, St Christopher’s Inn hostel couldn’t be easier to find. Many of the city’s best tourist attractions are only a few minute’s walk away and the main public transport station is literally a few steps from our front door.

Onsite, in our epic Belushi’s bar and restaurant you’ll receive awesome guest-only discounts like 25% off our international food menu in our late kitchen and ridiculously good value 2-for-1 drink deals during Barcelona’s Longest Happy Hour.

Our in-house entertainment team will be sure to get the party started with our free daily welcome meeting that leads into nightly events, such as; Cocktail Masterclasses, Paella cooking sessions, Wine and cheese tastings and massive Beer Pong competitions. Our live sports offerings can’t be beaten and are famous throughout the city among locals, expats and backpackers alike. Why not join our staff after hours for guest-list access to Barcelona’s biggest beachfront nightclubs?

Shake that Barcelona hangover with an enormous continental buffet breakfast (€5) on one of our sunny terraces or in our huge comfy common area before joining us on one of many free or paid tours available from the friendly team at our 24-hour reception.

Our brand new building offers up state-of-the-art, modern facilities like individual charging points and private curtains on every dorm bed, and with more than 400 guests staying with us all year round you’re bound to make new friends quickly.

For keen travellers you’ll be happy to know that there are also big lockers under your bed (bring a padlock or buy one for €4), towels for rent in the front desk, fast and free Wi-Fi throughout the entire building, communal fridges for cold storage but limited self-catering facilities. Either way, you’re bound to feel safe, secure and well looked after by our round-the-clock professional security service and dedicated housekeeping team.

St Christopher’s is THE benchmark for a new generation of hostels and staying with us is an experience in itself. Be prepared for the time of your life at your new home away from home, in Barcelona, a city obsessed with football, sun, sea sand and sangria!

*Please note that we do not allow under-18s to stay in this hostel unless sharing with a responsible adult in a private room. View House Rules

Overview

St Christopher's Barcelona hits the sweet spot of fantastic location, loads of facilities and fun-loving staff. When you're feeling sociable, get involved in our many daily – and nightly – events. Every day, there's free sangria before the team kicks off the entertainment – like paella cooking, beer pong and open mic nights. When you want a place to chill, enjoy some downtime on our sunny terrace and lounge. And because we're in a modern building, we've got elevators – so you won't have to trek up the stairs!

Location

Our brand new building's right at the top of Las Ramblas – Barcelona's most famous street. We're just off Plaça de Catalunya, where the airport bus drops you off, so you can't miss us (it's about a 20 minute bus journey). Lots of Barcelona's attractions and bars are a short wander away: we'll show you on our daily walking tour. We're less than 10 minutes from the Mercat (market) de la Boquería, where you can get souvenirs and local specialities, and 20 minutes from the winding lanes of the Gothic Quarter.

Rooms and Dorms

Our dorms have cosy pod beds – so just pull your curtain across for a bit of privacy when your roommates are all in. You'll have a power point and USB socket to keep your gadgets charged, and a reading light for staying up late with a new novel from our book exchange. There are mixed and female-only dorms, as well as private rooms for couples and small groups, and some have en-suites. You'll find a large locker under your bed, free linen, and you can rent towels.

Extras and activities

We're right upstairs from the famous Belushi's backpacker bar, and our guests get a 25% discount. (We recommend trying their legendary burgers.) After happy hour, carry on the party by joining our nightly pub crawl – our staff get exclusive guest list access to some of Barcelona's coolest beach bars! When you get back, update your profile pic with our free Wi-Fi.

    St. Christopher’s has a great atmosphere and is right in the middle of all the action. Great location steps from La Rambla and with a restaurant and vibrant bar downstairs. As a guest you get great discounts too! Rooms were very clean and bathrooms well-kept. Very secure with multiple swipe system to get into elevators, halls and rooms. The lockers under the bed are super convenient too! Would definitely recommend!

    St Christopher’s is all you expect from a hostel. Lots of social common areas (other than the actual bar downstairs) make it easier to socialize. And it’s a BIG hostel so it means a lot of different people and that’s awesome. The rooms are nice and bathrooms clean. I have One big complain that is the Kitchen. They need more fridges and more everything related to kitchen (plates, utensils, cups, glasses). Also it need more cleaning on old food to avoid food flies.

    I have to say that the stay at St Christopher’s was perfect considering it is a youth hostel. The location is nice, the room was alright. What really ruined my experience was to figure out that Hostelworld had shown me an $X price, because I was looking for accommodation for one person, and as I booked a private room (for 2 people) I was charged double ($2X). I understand how this might happen, but when looking for accommodation, you expect the search page to give you all the info upfront.

    Me and a friend stayed here and had a couple minor inconveniences but nothing major!! We you definitely recommend and go back!! It’s pretty much in the heart of the city. The bar is perfect for meeting new people from all over the globe, everyone including the staff were really friendly and welcoming. If you’re solo travelling or with others, it’s a great place to stay and see the city!

    Very Good

    22 Jul 2021
    This hostel is right in the center of everything so it’s incredibly easy to get around (right next to Catalonia Square, train, easily walkable/bike). The staff wasn’t very pleasant, not overly mean but just made me feel like an inconvenience every time I interacted with them. As far as the other people staying in the hostel, it was one of the only hostels I’ve stayed in where they weren’t super social/friendly. I’ve stayed in heaps so it was weird to me. The hostel was very clean and secure.

    Room smelled terribly. Not the hostels fault with a smelly person but they really need a window or ventilation as it hung in the air. Also toilet was dirty and lack toilet paper and you can't go to another floors bathroom as your key card doesn't allow it. Also they charge to store bags. I don't like giving these kind of recommendation to not stay here.
