Amazing place! Very close to railway station and to everywhere in Barcelona. Supermarket just on the corner-so you can buy products and cook them for yourself. Very clean dorms, bathroom and kitchen. A lot of space between beds - that is very important in hostels and safety lockers. The most friendly stuff I ever met, fluently speaking in english, spanish and french. They can give you advice about everything that you need - museums, nightlife, relaxing place, etc.


Bit far from the centre but very close to the best metro line, very friendly staff, this was my second time staying and they now have wifi in the rooms so yay improvement! Good area with lots of shops and food nearby, also so close to Sants train station which is a massive bonus.


This hostel was very clean. The facilities were nice and the staff was helpful, especially the women staff and the owners. This hostel attracts a wide variety of people since it is so close to the Sants train stop. I would not recommend this hostel if you are looking to go out a lot at night to enjoy the night life or meet a lot of students who want to party. The rules also seemed a little strict, like not being able to use the common room past 1 am.


Slightly off the city centre but very easy to get in . Good connectivity even at night through night bus service. Great hostel if you want to explore the city and not lie in bed all day . Tips from the staff , esp Laura spot on. Dont know how the service is going to be in the future as the management is going to be changed soon. Best wishes to Laura in the green fields of Kansas!


Nice kitchen, but an extra cooking plate would be very helpful.


Decent hostel, great for the price. Bit far from the city centre (I.e. You can't walk it) but the nearest train line is the best one and will take you to several of the key places without having to change. Also within walking distance of Placa Espanya, which is very handy if, like me, you need to catch the night bus to get to the airport super early in the morning. Female staff were really friendly, the neighborhood has lots of restaurants and supermarkets, would recommend!


Very helpful staff. Had to cancel on very short notice, but they were willing to let me move the booking to another night with no extra charges. Fairly quiet area, but there is some street noise when the window is open. Room was very big, lots of space, big windows and good sized lockers. Good showers and the water was always warm. My only complaint is the bunk bed. It was not sturdy, when you move the whole bed moves and makes noise (squeaking). Good breakfast. Close to metro and Sants station.

Sandeep, Thanks for your comments, the bunk bed is now FIXED! See you next time! Laura


great place


World best hostel! All the staffs are so friendly kind, and cooperative.. they always smile and keep their seat, active. Hostel is very clean, quiet and safety systems are great too. Love this hostel


Loved the possibility to check in late, the cosy living room and the beautiful bathroom! Just a small improvement would be nice: while travelling alone and wanting to take a shower, I didn't know where to leave my stuff safely (clothes, key and security badge, glasses). Solve this small inconvenience and it's really the perfect place to stay in Barcelona! :)


Great Hostel Staff very friendly. Everything clean. Security is perfect. Breakfast simple but has bread, flakes, milk, coffee, tea, nutella, jams, butter... Beads very good, nice hostel, calm, no noise outside. Location is not the best because it is not like two steps from Las Ramblas, but it's at the city centre, close to metro, stadium, university, "Diagonal" and quite close to the main train station (train to the airport). I'll stay there again. Book it! Worth the price!!


Amazing hostel! Staff is ready to help in whatever you need. The girl from reception was almost a city guide, telling us what we should visit, where to eat and so on. People there are really attentive! I am definitily returning there!


The price is really good. Location is also good, less than 10 min walk from the train stasion. The reception is really helpful and kind.


Staff was super helpful and the hostel was great!


It was the best hostel among many hostels where I stayed before. I travel quite a lot, so I stayed many hostels in Europe. Very nice staffs, good prices, clean and comfortable lobby, very safe lock system..I think the location is also good because it is close to the big station - Sants. The station has good connections with airport, other place in Barcelona city, and other cities in Spain. Definitely, I want to recommend this Alberguinn Youth Hostel to everyone.


This place is great..
