Great place to meet new friends and to enjoy Barcelona during the day and for the nightlife. Probably the most sympathetic staff ever, even they prepared an special Mediterranean meal for new years eve. The hostel is quite "far" to the touristic places of Barcelona, but there is a metro station at 30 meters from the hostel and an amazing beach just 5 minutes walking.


The hostel is huge, the lockers system is really good, nobody can use more than one locker, you will always have one available for you.


All the staff were nice and helpful except for the Chilean guy who hit on every girl and was rude to guys.


Location is good if you want to go to beach, but it is far from main sightseeing. Breakfast was basic, reception is open 24hours, Showers are clean. If you stay in a room with a lot of people it might be noisy and uncomfortable to sleep (depending on the roommates).


Nice hostel, the only thing is that you need nice neightbours.We could hear (and understand) every word spoken in the next room. Nice staff, close to the metro (20 min. to Barcelona) and to the beach (10 min walk). Not always hot showers, good common areas, wifi only works in the common area. Liked staying there. Airconditioning in the room, but it only cools the room a few degrees while being quite loud (but it makes a nice change to the neightbours noise and the garbage men at night ;)). :)


Altogether, the stay was excellent!! For me, location was perfect - really close to the beach and perfect if you want to see normal neighbourhood of the city, not just same tourist faces=) Atmosphere in the hostel is very pleasant, staff super helpful, cleanliness is 150%, facilities excellent and new! Breakfast was a pleasant addition, if only it could be served a little longer, cause everybody comes at 9.45 and stands in the queue )) Shower would be better if movable, not fixed on the wall


I had a wonderful stay in the Be Dream Hostel. The staff was super nice and helped me when i lost my credid card. Especially the Rasta man on the reception, who is a super funny guy, was trying to help me in that bad situation. Go ask him what you can do in Barcelona, he can tell you the best restaurants and local places. =) I would recommend the hostel to everybody who wants to spend some nice days at the beach and discover the city.

Nice hostel in a quiet neighborhood with a good vibe, not too far from downtown and the beach. All the shops you would need are close by, overall a very good deal if you want cheap accommodation in Barcelona. Highly recommended

Please have a cereal at breakfast that's not so sugary. Had a good stay here :)


Me and my boyfriend had a wonderful experience at this hostel! The metro was only a 5 minute walk away, and same for the beach. They have a kitchen where you can store and prepare meals so this helps save money. The rooms and bathrooms were Clean and spacious, free wifi and a super chilled out common area and courtyard. And the price is right! :)


It's not a horrible hostel, but it's far from good. First off, the hostel is VERY far from Barcelona (not a huge problem because of the metro system), secondly, the staff disappears from the front desk at random times throughout the day leaving guests waiting for a long time,and finally, they allow families and seniors in,not saying that's a bad thing, but it creates a different environment. There are cheaper/cooler places in the city if your looking for value. All that said, it's not horrible.


The location was beautiful and very close from the beach. It was away from the big traffic and I enjoyed it a lot. Metro that is in front of the hostel will take you to the centre within 15 minutes. Staff was friendly and many supermarkets and cafes were nearby. However, sleeping in a dorm was pretty much impossible. Would recommend a private room.
