A few things to point out: -The staff barely speaks english. -It happened more than once that the staff entered the room in the evening (10.30 p.m.) or the night (1 a.m.), turned on the lights, while people were sleeping to show the room for newcomers. They did not even bother to say sorry or to turn of the light when they left. -The trashbin in our room has not been emptied for amlost a week, with trash piling up in the corner of the room.

This hostel needs to employ someone who can speak English better, the communication was tough.. also they need to inform you that they take the first nights stay out of your account before you arrive even after having paid a deposit, I had to get my card cancelled over this because it was an unknown transaction! Very unprofessional..

인도인이 하는 호스텔인데, 정말 친절하고,편하고 막 도와줍니다^^ 호스텔도 깨끗한 편이고, 위치는 저는 딱 좋았어요. 관광지에서 너무멀지 않고, 밤에 조용한! 도보 3분거리에(두 블럭) 슈퍼마켓이 있어서 물같은거 사다먹기도 편하고...가격대비 만족성높아요.

Nice hostel! The rooms had airconditioning and the stuff were really friendly. They cleaned up the common areas and bathrooms everyday which was great! Thanks for the stay :)

A little bit expensive considering the location, but a nice hostel overall.

So many things wrong with this place. The staff were very unprofessional and a bit creepy. They napped in the common room during the day and used the kitchen in the morning without washing their dishes. There are hardly any pans or cutlery to begin with so this was extra annoying. Our food was also mysteriously eaten and they didn't seem to care. When we complained about people turning on the lights at 5am they just laughed. Bathrooms were manky and never cleaned. Don't stay here.

The place is dirty. Bathrooms and all floors had not been cleaned recently. Garbages needed to be emptied. The staff wouldn't let us hang laundry to dry on the patio, for some reason. Kitchen is decent though. Located quite far from the water if that's your interest. No atmosphere to speak of. Super loud radio hits were played in the kitchen by staff starting at 10am, and the front door buzzer was located just outside our dorm and went off all night. Cheap dorms are the only possible reason togo

Small but comfortable hostel with friendly and helpful staff, security lockers in the room, I stayed one night and was happy with the place.

I stayed at Barcelo with 13 friends. This place didn't really look like a hostel - more like a house shared by 5 men that has its rooms for rent. The kitchen was always messy and dirty - and we realised that the mess was made by the staff. Even though the toilets were shared there was no way to lock the doors!!! The atmosphere of the place was mod killer, with a weird staff that made noise up to 1am and kept offering drinks to all the girls. It was a very unconfortable experience overall.

There is a sense as if we were at someone else's house, in this case the would be the staff's.

Good: linen and towel were clean and big enough. Not good: one of the staffs was not perfect English speaker and he did not know well about his job (he said he was new there, so it could be ok.). A bit difficult to find the place, without any sign outside.

Only stayed for one night so it worked well for me- only complaint is that it was a little loud and I found it difficult to sleep for my early morning departure but that's pretty typical for a hostel crowd. Would definitely consider booking again.

We stayed in 4 bed room for 4 nights. Our room was considerably clean, but the bathrooms and toilets were not very clean. But still it's good value for money. The staff was very nice and helpful. Hostel is about 10min away from the center with bike. My overall rating is good and i'll be staying in that hostel if i visit Barcelona again.

The place is boring and dirty. Toilets and showers are completely disgusting. There is absolutely nothing to do. Staff speaks barely English and don't have any touristic info., even flyers. If you are lucky you have a map. Litten is included. Those are totally awful and dirty. Mine has been burned at several places. I don't even want to know when is the last time they got clean. Overall it is a really bad experience. There's a LOT of places where you will pay similar prices for better.
