The room is so small. If you use the hostel just for sleeping, there is no problem. Location is perfect! You can walk to sagradafamilia. And the price is really cheap.

The hostel was supposed to be a 6 bed female dorm. Instead, there were two rooms that were literally as big as my closet, with a bunk bed in each, and one normal sized private room. The private room had males each night, which defeated the purpose of a female hostel/dorm. My bunk had a total of 3 people! I messed up my reservation time as well, and was reminded for at least 20 minutes about how to be a responsible guest. I couldn´t find the hostel because its not a hostel but an apartment.

If you just want a bed to sleep and a shower, it is the right place, but this is actually not a proper hostel, it is like an apartment and the guy just put some beds in the rooms. There is only one toilet and shower and botj are in the same room. No lock. The rooms are so small that 2 persons cannot be standing at the same time. Is really cheap though.

We wouldn't know what this particular hostel was like as, even though we booked 5 months in advance, we were told when we arrived that he had no knowledge of our booking and was now full. After telling us that it would be easy to find alternative lodging nearby (unlikely during a music festival!) he finally said he could put us up in another hostel (once we said we were going to complain to hostelworld), the other side of town. We were not the only ones this happened to - it seems like a scam!

2 very small rooms without window but nice place though (very clean, with friendly host). One room has a window and is quite big. I reccomend this hostel for young people who care about money.

This was our first stay at a hostel, so we don't have any background to compare it with other accommodations of such type. However we can say the following: it was easy to find, is situated near to the historical city centre and main bus station, unlimited hot water clean kitchen and bathroom clean and cosy beds welcoming atmosphere. Thank you!

The rooms are really small but overall the accomodation is very good for that money. Great place if you want to spend only few days in the city but too small for a longer trip. The host is very kind, helpful and a good conversation partner. The atmosphere was very kindly and friendly. I can recommend this place.

First of all, it is not a 'hostel', it is an apartment. It is an 'okay' place to stay, a considerable distance to Sagrada Familia and the beach. As my flight was at night, the host was kind enough to allow me to put my luggage and hang out at his place with other backpackers after checking out.

At first we were quite surprised because we were expecting a youth hostel and it's actually an appartment (well, we haven't attentively read the information on hostelworld.com because it's written). But at last, we enjoyed staying here. The place is quite well-located, 3 min walk to the metro and 15 min walk to the city centre. There is a kitchen and a nice bathroom, which offsets the very small bedrooms. The host Selli is very kind and helpful and it was nice chatting with him!

Great price for a whole apartment to yourselves but the bunk beds are in the tiniest room, almost a closet converted to a room. Plan to spend your time in the living room or out on the town. The host was very nice and even gave us the one bigger room to accommodate us. Although he was absent when it came time to check out and get out key deposit back. Very unprofessional to leave you stranded like that. Kitchen was great to cook in, and shower was nice. Location is good next to metros.

Excellent value for money, extremely friendly and helpful owner. Room may be small but you don't really need the space when you are exploring such an interesting city. Good size bathroom and use of kitchen makes for a enjoyable stay.
