Amazing place. Close to the beach and the metro line "Poblenou" (5 min walk). the only thing i didn't like, was the fact that you had to pay 2.5 Euros for each towel (the money will not be returned even if you return the towels) and also the fact that the installed hairdryers in the shower area were completely broken and they have no additional ones to lend you. But besides that, GREAT place. 4.5/5!

One of the best hostels I have ever get. And very nice location, really next to the beach and to the Metro, nexto to the Poblenou Ramblas. Very good staff, good prices, really excellent facilities....good experience, but even better if you are really wanting to party

The hostel was very dirty, especially the toilets and bathrooms. Sand everywhere, toilets unflushed. The breakfast food was really poor also, it really wasent pleasant. The rooms are tiny. Can barely move, even turning around is difficult. Beds are uncomfortable. Rooms really are not practical.

i felt like in a fridge. Always air conditioned also when the weather outside was not hot, not place open air except a small terrace, in a small room where can stay well 6 people they put 12 like chickens, it was a claustrofobic experience. The roof sometime is very low like 2 mt and little more. As i call them, it's a factory money hostel. The good thing is the position: in the nice neighborough of Poblenou

We visited Amistat Beach Hostel a year ago and enjoyed our 5 days there, so we came back this summer. Just like last year, we had a great time, met some great people and made alot of new friends. The common room is a great place to meet new people during the stay, and we've met very nice people each time we've been there. The staff is friendly, and the pub crawls each night are also a great way to meet new and exciting people. The guys arranging the pub crawls are really awesome aswell!

What made this hostel excellent was the atmosphere from the travellers. The pub crawl and general information was poor and business orientated rather than fun or social. So it is best to explore and make new friends on your own initiative .

A super great hostel! The bathrooms were extremely dirty all the time, and the rooms were very very very tiny. The kitchen was awesome, the atmosphere was cool, and the breakfast was delicious! The terrace was for sure my fav spot! So close to the beach

The hostel is in a very good location if you want to be close to the beach. If not is like a good 40 min walking or a bus ride from the center of Barcelona. The only thing I didnt like was the showers, they were very disgusting! Other than that is was good stay!!

This place is 15 min walk to the beach, there is alot of restaurants/pubs closeby, got an excellent commonroom and awesome staff that plans alot of activities such as pubcrawls and beachvolleyboll at the beach. Also AC in all the rooms

LOVED my stay here! The staff were friendly and helpful and it's super easy to meet great people, so I definitely recommend this for solo travellers. The location is ideal if you're in Barcelona for the beach - if you want to be in the city, stay somewhere else. Bathrooms and showers unfortunately were always dirty. Also they charge through the teeth for pub crawls (12 euros minimum) where other hostels in Barcelona do them for free. Overall though had a great time. I'll be back!!

I give the facilities a less than good rating because only some of the showers were working when we first arrived. Then a couple days into our stay one of the walls for the showers came down leaving only 3 working showers. The showers were not fixed during the remainder of our stay.

Not super close to downtown, but excellent beach access and great people. Would definitely go back!

Not what I was expecting in a beach hostel (in a good way!). The atmosphere was incredibly relaxed, it was easy to sleep at night (no loud parties), and it was the most family-friendly hostel I stayed at during my trip. If you want to party in Barcelona, they organize a nightly clubbing event which I recommend trying at least once. Location is absolutely unbeatable and the facilities are brand new (just celebrated their one-year anniversary).

Staffs in Amistat are extremely kind and helpful. However, It is noisy in the night, because some roommates come back late, and acoustic partition is poor. I'm satisfied with Amistat in all.
