Central Station Hostel Barcelona
Ranked #663 of 739 Speciality Lodging in Barcelona
Reviewed 31 May 2016

rented a room for 4 people last second, was only given a single and double bed in a disgusting apartment. owner took half an hour to ignore us and continued to answer phone calls while we waited to claim our room key. said we would have the place to ourselves, but then a french couple showed up and smoked weed the entire time destroying the place. i get that its in the middle of the ghetto of barcelona, but coming home to the door having been broken down even though it was deadlocked is still upsetting. highly recommend NOT renting a room here for your own health and safety (and sanity honestly).

I picked this hostel through hostelling international, who I used for a trip to canada which was super social and organised. When I got there the receptionist was polite but I felt like I was a bit of a nuisance or something which did leave me feeling very welcome. The information up on the walls was all out of date, they only seem to care for when summer hit. The kitchen is so very basic, it doesn't even have a proper cooker, but a hot plate that wasn't working. Breakfast was ok, filled a gap for start of day and it was pretty quiet as hostels go. I just felt alot more effort could have been made by putting up to date info on walls, it really lets down the HI hostels I have used before. Some pro's its in the middle/just of the ramblas and very close to the metro and airport drop off/pick up point. Not more than a 30 min walk to barcoleneta and is good for somewhere to sleep. If you want something more social thou go elsewhere!

This place is creepy & freak & i won't advise anyone to go there under any circumstances ..

It was a way expensive for what i paid .. no value for money at all .. because honestly i got nothing except for the location which is nearly in the center of the city ...

There is nothing called " room service" .. you collect your trash yourself ..

Wifi was not working ..

Bathroom & W.C could never have been worse ...

Of course there was no view whatsoever ...

TV was damaged ..

No table .. no chair .. no closet or cupboard .. nothing except for the bed ..

They can barely understand English ..

This is a family managed place and it is a hotel or hostel by any means .....

this hostel is indeed the most shabby, scruffy and dirty hostel my boyfriend and I have ever been to. And we always choose the cheapest ones ...
dirty beds, awful smell and completely run down rooms and facilities. I bet they didn´t clean there for the last 10 years, at least.
by the way, there are no windows in rooms and bathrooms.
disgusting hostel.
stuff isn´t able to speak english, during service hours receptionist sleeps and doesn´t open the doors...

Room Tip: none of the rooms ;)

Dirty, noisy, full of questionable people and doesn't come close to the pics or description.

I booked a single room with private bath. It was neither. The bathroom was used by several who never cleaned up after themselves. The shower was disgusting. No soap provided even at the sink and a single torn beach towel was handed at check-in. No blankets on bed and no heat. It's cheap but still not worth it.
