Nice and clean. Very hot inside though. Hard to sleep. Asked to turn on ac a few times and when I got back it was off.
This is the third time I've stayed at this hostel and, as usual, I'm very satisfied with my overall experience. The staff are friendly, the location is superb, and the place is comfortable, clean and affordable. I highly recommend it.
CENTRALLY LOCATED HOSTEL WITH EVER FRIENDLY STAFF. SECOND TIME AT THIS HOSTEL AND WOULD USE AGAIN. BREAKFAST COULD BE MORE SUBSTANTIAL BUT OTHERWISE IT IS A PLEASANT PLACE TO STAY!
It felt very homie and safe. Always someone at reception and the people who run the place are really helpful, it seems like they're a family. The rooms were cozy and everyone shares all the bathrooms so there's always one available. Also the kitchen is a great common space plus tonnes of movies in case you want a chill night in. Not so much a party hostel, breakfast is also included!
I really enjoyed my stay at Backpackers BCN! It was a clean hostel, and the staff was friendly and helpful. Also, the hostel is very secure, and the lockers are great.
We only spent one night night at the hostel so I can't comment on everything. The two receptionist were lovely and happy to answer any questions. The whole hostel was very clean and tidy. I would recommend and stay again.
Literally no atmosphere - not recommended for solo travellers.
absolutely loved the calm atmosphere inside. I've probably never been so comfortable in a hostel before, it's a shame I had to go to another hostel after 2 days as they had no rooms available. fantastic staff!
Terrible hostel. It was a sauna when I checked in. Everyone in the common room was sweating. There's no windows, and they don't turn on the AC. My bedsheets had lots of stains, as did my roommate. Room doors don't have locks. People have to ring a doorbell to enter, so you hear doorbells all night. Breakfast was poor. Spend your money elsewhere
Good location air conditioning in room, huge plus. A bit noisy out side but that was not the fault of the hostel
Really nice people and atmospere there:)
Gonna miss the staff there cause they're so nice and helpful. Feels like a home rather than hostel. :)
Wonderful hostel, engaged staff, great atmosphere in the common room (the included breakfast helps with that), and there was even a free guided hike up Montserrat I was able to take advantage of. The hostel had lots of offers for cheap food, suggestions for your itinerary, and staff who were available 24/7 for anything you need. This great hostel gave me a perfect starting point for my trip in Barcelona.
Its very secure and in a safe area. From the hostel its easy to go to the airport or walk to the historical center. I really liked the Staff. They were always smiling and very helpful. I didn't like the atmosphere in the hostel... but that mostly depends on the type of guests in the hostel. It was very clean. In general i don't like it when beds are not made by the hostel. Because there are always lazy people who don't make there own bed so the mattresses get messy. Good Wifi in the whole hostel

Our stay at Backpackers BNC was very nice. The staff was friendly and eager to help. You can cook own meals or find shops and cafes/restaurants within 5 min of walking distance. The centre is also easy to reach.

By far the best hostel we've stayed at. Staff was super friendly and helpful. Working air conditioning, great kitchen, clean, and close to the city and a grocery store. Couldn't ask for more.
One of the best hostels I've stayed so far. Amazing price for a clean place, kind of familiar. The rooms are big and each bed has a locker. The common facilities were always tidy and the staff was very nice. In addition to this, you are at the city center and very close to supermarkets and metro stations.
Great hostel located walking distance to the core. Staff was really friendly and helpful.
Old, very old... Should be renovated, at least new mattresses and new fans in the bathrooms would help... The doors are very thin... After 11pm it's not allowed to cook, what is fine, but the staff should also stop singing at this time... No atmosphere, stinky.
