Great hostel and staff! But they close the hangout lounge super early..


The hostel is near to Barcelona Sants which made our way in and out of it very comfortable but it is not near from the main turistic spots. The wifi does not work very good. The kitchen sistem works very good.


Decent hostel. Wifi was good everywhere. All cement floors so kind of cold feel. My room was pretty cold temperature wise also. Very few people there, but I was there in December. Hard to spot from the street, and entrance area was very poorly lit. Everything was pretty clean. Outlet right next to my bed, and light at every bed.


Stayed here a short night in between travels. Was only a short walk getting off the train station. Hostel seemed nice though I didn't have much time to linger with fellow travellers as I went right to bed. Did shower and the facilities were clean. Bed was comfortable and linen smelt clean and fresh. However it was extremely noisy outside the hostel with motorbikes revving loudly, even with windows closed and ear plugs in. Had a poor sleep because of it.


We stayed here for one night for a train transfer. It was a 5min walk from the Barcelona Santa rail station. Best feature was a industrial sized washer & drier. I would spend a transition night there any night just to get cleaned up & do laundry. Sleep was challenging in the room I was in b/c the night crowd hung out right in from of the street door & the big window in the room needed to open to keep the room cool. Bunk beds were a bit squeaky but manageable. It was clean & staff were great :))


The staff were very friendly and spoke good English. Being able to use the computers for free and getting breakfast for free was great.

About 10 min walking distance from Sants train station. Hard to find, as the hostel is on the second floor of a building, but it is only one floor so that's nice. Not enough power outlets in the rooms. There is a flyer for deals at museums and such at the reception desk, but nobody siting there knew how to sell them. Not great deals anyway, so not a problem.


Place was very clean and organized. They have key cards for the entrance to the building also once you get to the dorms and bedrooms. Very secure. Large bathrooms. Wifi worked great the whole time. Great location around lots of restaurants and 5-10 min walk from Barcelona sants train station/metro. Staff was friendly. Highly recommend


Have stayed at this hostel mant times before but this time it was terrible!Asked the staff to turn on the aircon but after 30 mins had to ask again!They forgot!Then it did not work!!Now i know what it is like to be in prison!To have 12 people in one room with windows shut and the bad smell it was disgusting!The staff in the past were excellent but now they do not care!Never again!Past posts say the aircon does not work so please read these and get it fixed!!!
