I always stay at Alberguinn and this is my fourth year in a row!The staff are always very friendly and helpful!The rooms,common area,kitchen and bathrooms are spotless!!The hostel is only a 5 minute walk from Sants train station!For me it is the best place to stay in Barcelona!!Highly recommended!!!


Cuando llegue al hostal, la persona del turno de la tarde estaba peleando con la persona del turno de la noche, discutieron por 20-30 min muy fuertemente, después de que terminaron pude hacer mi check in, espere mas de 40 min! Después de la 1am no puedes estar en la sala de estar y si dejas cosas en el refrigerador y tienes que partir muy temprano vas a perder todo porque la cocina la abren hasta las 8, el recepcionista le grito a una chica porque ella quería sus cosas amenazó con echarla!!


Pleasant stay in a good hostel


The Wi-fi is super slow...


Towels should be provided

Nothing Special, perfect for a night stay if your using the main Barcelona train station. Extremely slow wifi, standard hostel facilities, not really any good vibes, not easy to meet people if your traveling solo. If staying longer then a few days, find an alternative


It is near Barcelona-Sants but far away from "La Ramblas". internet connection was ok.


-average wifi connection -good location near Barcelona sants -good hot showers -average breakfast


The hostel was amazing, its not a really good location if u are lookig to be in the center of barcelona but its close to sants station. The hostel it self is top quality , theres everything u need.


The air conditioning didn't work or wasn't turned on.


Good location and reasonable price. The staff was nice and helpful. My only problem was that the wifi was not working 75% of the time.

Met a ton of great people here and it was really close to the sights.


Location is pretty okay, close to the train station but far from the main attractions. The staff is friendly and helpful, but the newer ones are less knowledgeable. All in all, decent price for a decent stay!


I liked the hostel because it was a nice place to stay, even it was a bit far from metro or town center. It was really clean, safe and the staff was great. Waiting for the check in you can let you luggage in a safe storage for free. Breakfast included with unlimited bread + jam and cereals :) BUT it would be nice to have wholemeal bread and fruit as well, and maybe also soy/rice/almond milk for Vegetarian or Vegan. The internet wifi on computers do not work at all. :(

Felt like a hospital. Not welcoming at all. And it was way too hot inside. You couldn't breath.


Located about a 15 min walk from the Barcelona Sants train station. The staff is GREAT. I was looking to buy Barcelona football tickets, and she went out of her way to contact her boss who was selling some. Also, there was a constant amount of cleaning going on. 1 bathroom for girls and 1 for boys. Showers are in stalls and push knobs. Not a big fan of that but it did the job.


Nice staff.Relaxing place


Under my opinión Alberguinn hostel is pretty quiet.There was big group from Spanish teenegers at the morning that they annoyed me and I think the breakfast could be improved.It's good hostel if you're looking for some place close to the AirPort from Barcelona but it doesn't have annything special as hostel in Barcelona...


This is the second hostel we have stayed at and it does not disappoint. It is actually clean and has facility that you see clean. I recommend staying here. The only thing is trying to make friends. In order to make friends you have to open yourself up. Ciao!


The hostel is not very well marked so it's hard to find. Especially in the dark!
