We have been enjoying our stay in Barcelona. The location is handy. About 30 minutes walk from interesting tourist attractions. Public transportation nearby. Restaurants and bar are nice and good value. Bed is comfortable.

The location is very good, close to a lot of attractions. I felt very welcomed, there are a lot places in the hostel were you can relaxe and enjoy. I booked the breakfast which paid off very well. The bar is nice and you have the possibility to eat something there like pizza or burger.

Breakfast was really good, a hotel double room in this hostel for over 150€/night is way too expensive. Bathroom door was loud at the beginning, was fixed afterwards, door of shower was only moveable with quite some power, pressure of the shower was really low. The room could be more cleaner. Rooms are furnished poorly, therefore more space in the rooms.

I’m giving a five star review to this place because of the bar staff’s incredible recommendation of a local establishment that some of my friends and I had the pleasure of frequenting on our last evening in Barcelona. As promised, and upon arrival, the tits were simply plentiful. The Eastern European women who welcomed us were incredibly generous with the time and attention they gave us and never left my side, often helpfully reminding me how to use the cash machine. It truly was a lesson in how to spend money. The plastic bedding was a tad uncomfortable, almost as disappointing as the faces of my new acquaintances once they saw my flaccid micropenis. However, we all laughed about it over our third bottle of champagne (on my tab, naturally) and made memories that I think my newly found friends will have forgotten as quickly as they met me. A wonderful time had by all. As for the hostel, bang average. Never let the truth get in the way of a good review. Would recommend nonetheless.

We stayed as a family of 4 in one of the private 4bedded rooms which was fine for us . Clean , spacious 2 bunk bedded room with separate toilet and shower. Really nice neighbourhood, close to metro , walking distance to x2 Gaudi houses and sagrada familia to name a few close by land marks. Nice bar area in the evening. Obviously a v mixed clientele of young people travelling , young sport teams on tour and family so a bit noisy but nothing major. You have to pay for a few add ons like leaving luggage (reasonable just a few euros depending on how long you leave ) and towels €5 euro per towel. A great affordable option for a city break.

The place was very nice and had a great style and atmosphere, especially for young people. It was relatively cheap to stay there and it was very close to a metro station. The people working there were very welcoming and kind. I didn’t have any problems with my stay, neither with the facilities, nor with the roommates. 100% recommend this place for a short stay in Barcelona.
