Very friendly and helpful staff. Nice, quiet hostel with a good atmosphere but definitely more on the relaxed side of things. Enjoyed my stay.

Probably one of the top 5 hostels i've ever stayed at. Location is perfect (3 blocks away from Plaza Catalunya), staff is incredible and always ready for helping you, super clean, a cozy common area, ecofriendly, and for an excellent price!!! Totally recommend this place for staying in Barcelona


Really nice hostel, very quiet and not as social as other hostels perhaps, great if you don't want to party in Barcelona though. Beds are a bit old


We booked this hostel after reading all of the other great reviews online and weren't disappointed. The hostel is in a great location, the staff are really friendly and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean.

Considering the location, the staff and most things this is an extremely good hostel. It has great location and the staff is extremely helpful and it feels more like home rather than hostel.


Great place to stay at with super friendly staff. If we come back to Barcelona again we definitely know where we will be staying.


The best hostel experience of my life (and will probably always hold that distinction because it was just so great)! Truly I loved every moment.. my time in Barcelona truly just hit all the right notes, largely due to the comfort and familial atmosphere of BCG and its amazing owners and staff! When I wanted to extend my stay, they transferred me to a private room due to availability. Prime location, fun events, and a great place to come home after a crazy night. Will always return, hasta pronto!


A nice and clean hostel with a friendly staff. The rooms are nice and the common areas are good. WIFI throughout is excellent. It's nearby some restaurants and store and a short walk to the metro and Gran Via. It's worth the price and would most certainly stay here again.


Great hostel, and awesome staff! I loved the atmosphere of the place.


I loved my stay at Barcelona Central Garden. All of the staff were so friendly and welcoming. They went our of their way to make sure I had the best experience possible. Thank you so much! I will recommend BCG to all my friends.

Thank you very much! We are very happy to know that you enjoyed your stay with us. We will be honored to host your friends in our hostel!! Best wishes, ale


A fantastic place to call home for 4 days. I was so happy to be here. Thank-you!


I had an excellent experience staying at this hostel! First I stayed in a large and comfortable shared room. When I went back with a friend, they kindly managed us to an incredible double room, with a private balcon. The hostel is super clean and secure, the facilities are excellent - lockers, a nice balcon to smokers, computers for guests anytime, free coffee -, and the best of all: the staff! They are all formidable people, always willing to help everyone in a genuine way! Gracias por todo!!


Thank you Barcelona Central Garden for a great stay! I have never stayed at a hostel before where the staff make an effort to learn your name, sit down with you just for a chat, ask how you are going or invite you to their table for a meal! Thanks for everything, will definitely be recommending you!


Fantastic hostel! Cant said its a hostel more like a home stay. The atmosphere was very good, the staff was very friendly and helpful!! They have a small kitchen but its was equipped with everything! We even cooked our noodle there. I cant thanks the manager enough because he helped us to book train tickets! Really a fantastic place, and if i come to Barcelona again, i would definitely stay here again! :)


Had the best time!! Such a homely vibe. Stayed 2 weeks, met some cool people and loved my stay. xx


The staff at BCG was awesome. They started with a 15+ minute orientation of the area at check-in, had suggestions for activities, were joking with people in the common room constantly, and generally were great. Then, when someone got pickpocketed, they helped call the airline for their return trip to convince someone to let the pickpocketed person fly without their passport and were wonderfully helpful. Follow the tips to prevent pickpockets in the email that they send before your arrival!


Great, friendly, super enthusiastic staff with useful advice! Thanks a lot! Excellent location! The toilet of the shared bathroom was sometimes a bit dirty, but that depends of the guests too of course.


Amazing hostel STAY HERE!! The staff is amazing so friendly. The best hostel I stayed in during my 3 month trip. Don't stay anywhere else this the the best. The staff go out of their way to make you feel at home. The hostel is very clean and tidy with excellent facilities. I will always stay here in the future.


Super friendly staff, comfortable vibe, clean rooms and plenty of toilets. Felt right at home as soon as I arrived. Not a party hostel but still easy to socialize. It's really close to local attractions, food, drink, and public transit. My only complaint is that my room smelled kind of weird: I think there was a septic pipe right outside our window or something.


Great hostel friendly people. I loved how they sat us down and let us know all the things to see and do. It was a great hostel. I cannot wait to visit again.
