No drinking allowed, which seemed odd to me. But it was nice and close to the beach. Pretty clean, good security. Good vibes, too.

This place was pretty nice. The facilities were great, location was nice. The staff weren't overly friendly or helpful. Breakfast was nice. There just seemed to be an air of trying very hard to be cool , the music was always too loud etc. still, a nice place, wouldn't recommend it if you're on your own as it wasn't that social.

The hostel was very clean and excellent facilities. The staff was very friendly and had good information about where the atractions were and how best to get there. The only downside was that our room was very hot and it seemed like we could never get the AC to work.

I loved this place!!

The hostel is very close to the beach, only five minutes walk. Also near to the metro, so it is very convenient to visit other places. The facilities are great and there is even a kitchen that you can make your own food there. But the best of all are the staff. They are very kind to talk to, help you buy various tickets, and recommend good restaurants. The price are very cheap.

I was traveling with two other female friends and we opted to stay at Amistat Beach Hostel because of its proximity to the beach. It is a newer hostel, so everything is clean and vibrant. They have several lounge areas, a community fridge and kitchen, and other amenities. Overall, it was a lively hostel and the staff planned an outing for those interested that night. We went to a local bar that had sangria on special for us. Fun and great location.

Hello and thanks for your review. We have to close the communal areas at a certain time to respect the sleep of our guests, but we offer you every day a night tour around the beatiful city of Barcelona so you don't have to go to sleep that early. Anyway, thanks again for your review and hope to see you again in Amistat!

They have cards which open the doors and also you own locker. There was only two things I did not like: 1. The air conditioner cannot be turned down and you can practically freeze to death if you sleep without clothes as they give you only sheets. 2. There were broken showers which were not fixed asap. Also the breakfast is the usual cheap carbohydrate dump.

Hola! thanks for the review! You can ask our staff members to turn on or off the AC at anytime, as you know our reception is open 24 hours. Our maintenance team works everyday to make sure that all the facilities are working at a 100%, maybe at the time that you came there was a broken shower, but we fixed in 24hours tops. Regarding the breakfast, we think that is a pretty decent one (cereals, toasts, coffee, milk, fruit...) especially considering that is FREE. Thank you again!

Pretty nice hostel perfectly located just a few meters away from the beach and a metro station. Toilets could be cleaned more often. Breakfast is included but seemed to the the cheapest possible type. Especially the coffee / juices from the machines were really disgusting. But all in all Iwould recommend the hostel.

Hola and thanks for the nice review. Ooook, we will try to improve our breakfast a little bit, but come on guys! it's free! About the cleaning, our cleaning staff cleans the toilets 3 times a day! Anyway amigo, thanks again for the review and we hope to see you in Amistat another time.

The best part of Amistat is its location close to the beach and common areas which helps you to meet with new people. Even if you don't know each other you are sharing your table, your food or drink... and become a friend. So the atmosphere in the hostel was pretty good. On the other hand they close these areas at 00.00 which is very early for me! So people who wants to spend their night at the hostel has to stay at their room. But i still have good impression about the hostel ;)

I was suprised how nice this hostel is. There´s lots of staff who are cleaning all the time. Its a very nice place.

This is a great place to go if you're travelling by yourself or in a group. The big tables in the common area are very sociable, and most nights people will be drinking and chatting down there. The kitchen is big and means guests can all cook at once, and there's free breakfast too. The location was great as it was a 5 minute walk from the beach and a 5 minute walk from the Metro station. The nightly pub crawls were so much fun and I'd definitely stay here again.

Loved the location - so nice to be close to the beach! And about an hours walk to La Rambla along the waterfront. Great facilities - so nice to have different areas to chill out / meet people and loads of toilets / showers. . Lots of people have commented on the state of the bathrooms. I've got to agree - you need to step this up. Our rooms ensuite bathroom, shower and sink wasn't cleaned the 3 days we stayed. And who knows how long before. Communal showers had black mould growing in them. Yuk
