Upon arrival I was greeted by "can I have ten minutes to finish my food". The lights were not working neither was the fan, this was later resolved. Clean bathroom but always engaged. The guys at reception were polite and made the stay that much better. If your looking to meet people or party I wouldn't recommend. Central location close...

The location of the hostel is not bad at all. Nearby you can find a bunch of bus stops plus 2 metro stations 5-10 min. walk. The staff is nice and helpful. I think we got stuck with the smallest room in the hostel. We were 4 people staying there and all there was in the room were 2 bunk...

Hostel is located near to the stop of public transport. Very helpful staff is able to advise what you should see, what better to avoid. Value for money is perfect. Rooms are clear. and compfortable. I think it's good place and I'm sure it wasn't my last time here.

Metro stations within walking distance of most places that were on our must-see list! For first time visitors, we were so pleased with the helpful staff and ideal location! Can't wait to utilize this space when I return!

It's location is ideal specially because it is about a 5 to 10 minute walk to two subway stations. Remind you that it's a place to sleep and explore Barcelona, and not a luxury hotel. Staff is very helpful. I recommend this place to people who are not fussy about accommodation.

It´s an ideal place to explore Barcelona. Metro stations are very close, also bars, restaurants and grocery markets are all within a block. Our room had a shared bathroom but it was spacious and clean. Staff was very friendly and always helpful. We definitely will be back!

Least effort possible to make the rooms homely. Room did not have wifi or basic things such as a towel rack or a bath mat. Despite requesting a double bed we were put in an extremely uncomfortable bunk bed. One night we were terrified to leave our room when a fight broke out in the room next door. The walls...
