Terrible customer service, rooms smell, and the wifi is garbage. If it was at a decent price it would be understandable... but for 50 euro you’re much better off at an Airbnb Do not stay here! save yourself the headache

Internet never works in the rooms. Otherwise it's a normal place. Staff are polite and friendly. You won't be able to use the towel that it's already in your locker uncles you pay more, and one of the staff will come up with you to take it from your locker.

The receptionist seemed not very interested in being a good host. You had to review the hostel high on some webpage to get the Wifi!! The place was clean and looked quite new. I wouldn´t recommend it though. There are better iptions close by.

I had a wicked experience here, it was a great hostel in a nice location for a great price. One of the main highlights of this hostel was the basement. Great place to meet people and play games/listen to music. There is a small kitchen but some great tapas bars around the corner!

Our room was like a spooky small cell in a jail. No window, no place for our luggage or anything. You cant sleep at night, cause there‘s no chance for fresh air and if you put on the air condition its to loud. Horror... and pretty expensive. But at least the location of the hostel was very nice.

This place is so F-ING noisy - I can’t believe how few have commented on this! People stomping up and down the stairs, playing music, and even the visits to the toilet can be heard from anywhere on the two upper floors. We had to get up at 5am Monday morning so we went to bed early, but after an hour or so we were awaken by loud voices and hysterical laughter coming from downstairs. I’m pretty sure that the people weren’t guests at the hostel but friends of the guy in the reception and worse is that I’m pretty sure he was the one hyping up the laughter (if he wasn’t he should at least have the sense to ask people to be respectful to the guests). This continued from midnight until around 2am! Also, we stayed in a private room at the second floor and although we had a shower just outside the door the shared toilets were located outside the dorm room at the other side of the floor. The problem was that to get to them you have to enter a door that said “room 3”, which implicates that the toilets and showers belong to the dorm room, and the people who stayed there kept closing the door and keeping their room door open so when you went to the bathroom it was as if you walked directly into their private space. Further, the toilet doors had a gap of ~15 cm by the floor so you had next to zero privacy. If I ever had anything good to say about this place it’s been wiped from my memory. Well actually, the free apples were nice!

The staff were caring and helpful. The breakfast was good cereal toast ,apples , cheese, juice and tea and coffee. The hostel was clean. Our double room comfortable with a pleasant little balcony. Although the room was slightly apart from the main hostel and on the third floor. Only complaint is the hot water or lack of it. The water heater seems to only work occasionally so we ended up with mostly cold showers in the communal bathroom. Overall good value in this very expensive city. Very close to public transport and walkable to La Rambla.

Really lovely Hostel with young and friendly people. The room was a little bit small but they offered us a gift because we booked a double private room. The gift was a bottle of champagne, we appreciated this.

Barcelona is a little expensive on hotel stays so I thought I would try and stay in a hostel. I never have before so thought it would be a different experience. I probably won't do it again. The Hostel is in a good location to get to the metro and to be able to walk to most of the interesting sites. The hostel room was ok. The bed was fine but could use fuller pillows or two pillows on the beds. You do have to watch out for late check-ins. Was 4 of us in a room and at 12:30am they let people into our room for a very late check0in and woke all of us up. The internet and technology could be much more up to date and faster. The breakfast was ok. Most mornings I just grabbed a piece of fruit to eat on the run.

I'm not glad of my stay there. The room was clean, but we were asked for a room with 2 beds, and we get one bed. One guy, who works there said us that the system automaticly choose the beds. It's stupid and superficial. The wi-fi was awful. The breakfast - poor. The other time I will choose another place.
