Central Station Hostel Barcelona
Ranked #659 of 736 Speciality Lodging in Barcelona
Reviewed 18 July 2017 via mobile

I am absolutely shocked at this hostel which would turn off a shipwrecked migrant and actually is costing me $170/day for a bunk bed in a room the size of a closet. The bathroom is filthy and the man at the front desk asked me for 5 Euros in "tax" eventhough I had already paid all taxes through expedia. This is a den of criminals and not, under any circumstances, to be used by any, but the most desperate of people. I would actually rather sleep on the streets. This place needs to be reported to the authorities for the dishonest character of the man who runs the front desk -- a fellow named "Jassim" who asked for he false "tax" payment.

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 The information up on the walls was all out of date, they only seem to care for when summer hit.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!
