Great Place


100%

I loved this place!!


100%

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.

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.

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.

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

Such a fun atmosphere and not a hassle at all to get into the main city centre. Would recommend!!

This place is just fantastic. The staff is so helpful and the hostel itself is warm and bright and comfortable with an encouraging vibe towards community within the hostel. Perfect location next to the beach, great restaurants, mini markets at every corner, and the metro. Beautiful experience in Barcelona and this place added to that to take it to the next level. It is catered towards youth however, as in that is the age group you will find there.

We got a good stay there. We booked a 4 bed mixed dorm. it was very narrow. You hatd just enough space to stand next to the bed and this was also the only furniture in the room. As the hostel was only 1 1/2 year open by the time we stayed there, the showers were already not really good. But breakfast was included and located very close to the beach.

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!

Nice hostel and not expensive.!!! Near to beach but little far from city center. But you can reach city center within few minutes. Atmosphere in the hostel was lively. Rooms were small but it doesn't matter the most. Breakfast was good and was included in the rent. I liked it !!! will definitely stay next time. :)

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.

Hello there We are sorry that your stay at the hostel was not to your liking. From Amistat Beach Hostel we take very seriously the issue of cleanliness, both of the showers and other areas, that is why our cleaning staff cleans 4 times daily. As for breakfast, considering it is free, we think is not that bad, but we will try to improve it. We appreciate the comment and we will work to further improve the aspects that you mention.
