Super clean and calm hostel. Staff friendly and ready to help if it's needed. Kitchen and all facilities are tidy and very organised. The only poor point is that they don't have girls/boys toilets or bathrooms so it may be a little bit uncomfortable for some people.

Hi! Thank you for staying with us. We do it that way so that everybody has the option to use any bathroom without having to wait. All the bathrooms have a lock inside so this is not a problem.

I had a pretty bad experience at this hostel: - The mattress is extremely thin and uncomfortable - No outlet anywhere near my bed, so I couldn't safely charge my phone at night - Heating seemed to only be in the common area, so at night the bedroom was freezing - Wi-fi only in the common area, and even there it was extremely unreliable and slow - One night, one of the staff invited some friends and had a loud party past 1am (even though they ask to be quiet after 11pm) - Nobody locks doors

The matresses are not thin, they are comfortable, there were 3 outlets in your room and plenty of them all over the hostel. The heating works fine, you only had to ask to turn it on or you could have asked for another blanket. You never complained about anything, I checked you in, we are all nice and polite and tried to talk to you but you were never in the mood, it seemed. But worst of all, about the party, they were all members of the staff and, for God's sake, IT WAS NEW YEAR'S EVE!!!!!

This hostel had the basics of being a clean place to shower and sleep. The people I was travelling with also enjoyed the kitchen. There was a reasonable amount of socializing, but it seemed like a lot of people had been staying there for quite some time. The location is away from the center of the city, but not too bad of a walk in. It is basically right on the edge. The wifi only works in the common area.

Can't fault it. Everything was great. Facilities including a tv, tea and several clean bathrooms. It was excellent in every way.

I really loved to stay here! A nice, kind place with good people of the reception: kind and helpful. And I love the possibility to meet people from all over the world. In the hostel there is very much the possibility to meet, in the kitchen or in the central room. Everything was real fine.

The staff is really helpful, giving advice on how to move around the city and the places worth visit. They're well organized and keep track of every person that gets into the hostel, they don't give you a key to access it, you ring a bell and they open the door. They don't have a curfew, so I think it's cool. The place is quite small but comfortable, it's not overcrowed, and it's clean. I really liked it, I'm gonna definitely recommend it.

Backpackers BCN Cassanova was a great hostel, they were very welcoming and helped with multiple things. The security was great, you get your own locker in the room and its free. There is a kitchen which is always a plus. It was very home-like. Everyone was very nice and respectful of each other in the bedroom i.e. sleeping, light, loudness. The location is good, right near two metro stations.

The room you were in is too far from the router but you move 5 metres and you get it. Sorry for that but there is wifi everywhere else.

As you see from my scores I was very happy with my stay at Backpackers BCN Casanova. The helpful Argentinians guarded the door day and night. The kitchen and utensils were always aintained clean as were the dorms, showetrs and indeed all areas. Rosa (?) all all the staff worked hard and maintained a very pleasanmt and comfortable hostel. I hope I wil be able to return next year as there is plenty left for me to see by way of museums and to photograph toom when outside

Excellent facilities for the price! Clean rooms and bathrooms. Large lockers in the room. Clean and fully equipped kitchen. TV room and free wifi. Lovely staff that help with anything and everything. Laundry service for €8. Close to metro stations but also within walking distance of a lot of sights; ie 20 minutes to cathedral. Had a lovely time here!

Very good location: 10 mins walk to La Rambla, 3 mins walk to metro Line1 station. This is not a crowded hostel, it's quite cozy and makes you feel home, a place that you'd be happy to go back at night (or even during the day when you're tired and need some rest). Many toilets and showers you can use without waiting others, all very clean. A fully equipped kitchen. Free coffee and tea all the time. Very nice staff, helpful and smiling all the time. Comfy beds, cozy decorated rooms.
