Liked: Price and people

Disliked: That guests would use blow dryers for their hair at 1:00 am and well into the middle of the night. There maybe wasn't a strong enough emphasis on the rooms being for sleeping!

Liked: Loved the curtains at each bed - enables privacy if you need some. Also was very convenient to have each bed fitted with a power socket and a bed light - good for reading/doing other stuff if you need to when the lights to the main room is off.

Disliked: Small dislike would be that the water shower keeps running out of water after a couple of mins and you would need to press it again for more water - I guess it saves water but kinda annoying when you're showering.

Liked: The best hostel i have ever experiense! No mater from which aspect: cleaness, facility, design, prices...the stay at here is a plus to my journey value. Especially the big size of bed and locker box, curtain and bed light. I will definestly recommended to every traveller who going to visit this group.

Disliked: To be picky, i will say No hanger at shower room and the hair dryer is broken at one of the toilet. But there is another one you can use.

Liked: Belushi's bar

Disliked: We were in a 12-person mixed room, booked to full capacity. However, that was no excuse for the moist, unpleasant air that immediately engulfed you when you entered the room. We could not open the window to air it out because it was locked. Our room smelled like a body odor jungle for two days, until the cleaning staff finally opened the window while we were out.

Liked: I really loved staying at St Christopher's Barcelona! The people were amazing, the room was great value (the little curtains for each bed were really good) and everything was very clean and well-presented. Each bed also had a large horizontal locker and its own plug and light. The air conditioning also works really well. I had a bit of a problem in that there was already somebody in my assigned bed, but the staff worked it out very quickly. The bar downstairs was pretty good for drinks, overpriced for food in Barcelona though, and they had promoters for the major clubs coming around with great deals for me and all my new friends I had just met in the bar that night. The location was also very central, without there being too much noise.

Disliked: The wifi was dodgy in the rooms and the bathrooms were always quite muggy.

Liked: From the moment you walk through the Hostels doors you can tell it will be a youthful, fun and enjoyable atmosphere. The staff, most being native Spanish or South Americans with a great level of English, welcome you and help you as well as they can, and the bar staff being mostly European know how to help you have a good night and will adapt the special offers and menus so that they suit you. The rooms are spacey, and the bed gives you a sense of privacy since its one of the only hostels I've been to that has good curtains to shut of the rest of the world from you. When it comes to security, the lockers are big enough for hand luggages sized bags, and any big factured bags will have to be left outside. For this reason, and also because the lockers have no locks, I would advise bringing a lock, keeping your curtain shut at all times, and not leaving phone charges ect... plugged in while youre out. Just in two days a charger and someones belongings when missing, but dont hate the hostel, hate the players. The showers have a perferct water temperature, the smoking area is friendly and open, they have ping pong tables, large recreational area, sometime a big screen, and plenty of people from whichever country you come from!

Disliked: Just the fact of security and I am slightly upset that they do not hold any special gigs or small bands, although maybe its because of the position of the hostel or maybe I simply just missed the ones there has been!

Liked: Location was good.

Disliked: The bathrooms rival those of a well-to-do prison. There is also a mysterious vinegary stench in the hallways and in the rooms. Maybe 10 years ago this was a good place, but these days with so many good hostels at this price point this place is simply not competitive.

Liked: Great location. Everyone is young and cute. Big focus on partying. The bar/restaurant downstairs is great. Staff is really nice. Breakfast is suuuper.

Disliked: Smell. I was on the 4th floor, and the whole floor always smelled like poop honestly. They need more ventilation in the bathroom/shower rooms to control the smell. I stayed in a 12 person dorm room which mostly smelled like feet. I didn't like being on the top bunk cause there isn't anywhere to put your things when you're changing. The lockers under the beds are hugely inconvenient cause they make you buy a lock and key to use them. Then you have to roll it out from under the bed and open this big lid and it's a whole annoying process.
