A well chilled out place to be especially when you've been out all day exploring.It's a home from home type place and the husband and wife team are very nice and helpul. Also the new staff are pretty chilled too. Very clean hostel, they are constanly cleaning ensuring new towels and linen fresh every day, there's a huge tv in the chill out room and wide range of movies to choose from.Great hostel for meeting like minded travelers.Can't fault anything..
Good location slightly away from the city centre - 10 minutes walk to Catalunya pl. Nice and quiet at night except for the road work that is happening outside (hopefully it was just a temporary work)
Fantastic cheap, small, comfortable hostel. Supermarkets are close by and the kitchen is a fun place to be. About 10 or 15 minutes walk from the main tourist street.
Amazing staff. I love Mária and Jenni!!!! Thank you so much.
I love this place.. Only hostel I will stay in Barcelona. Wi-Fi is the best of all the hostels i've been too.
For the price, this hostel is excellent. Good location, clean, and friendly.

It was amazing!!!! Thank you so much for everything !!!
Backpackers is a really relaxed place to stay. There is a welcoming atmosphere. Well equipped kitchen. Best shower I've had in a hostel. Only improvements would be that sometimes it was a bit hot and more natural light would be nice.
Nice hostel, friendly staff, quite dark no natural light.
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
