This hostel was really good to stay at. They had a communal kitchen, a big common room with huge tables so at a night everyone could sit and drink together and you could easily make friends. There were plenty of showers and toilets even though they were communal so you never had to wait around to use them. It was also just off the Main Street so it was quite yet close enough to walk there. The staff were friendly and had a good knowledge of Barcelona. Would definitely stay again.
The hostel was such a great choice! There was lockers in the rooms to keep your things safe. Plenty of young people to go out with, as well as tours with the hostel. The small breakfast was perfect, just so we didn't have to spend anymore money. And the staff was so helpful with any quesions or accommodations we needed. I would definitely suggest this to friends.
Showers weren't good - no hot water, and many of the shower heads broken. Kitchen wasn't fully equipped. And wasn't very impressed that male walking tour guides were somehow allowed to walk into the female shower room to try persuade everyone to go on a bar crawl tour - made things very uncomfortable while you were showering as no locks on doors!
Location was ok. Prostitutes if that is your thing 45sec away. Getting to hostel no problem it take train. Walking distance to everything and beach. Not much food/dining close but 8min walk to get to main street. In room bathrooms were terrible. Shower flooded whole room. In room locker were great size and room key activated. Breakfast was ok, nothing worth mentioning. Common room gets dirty real quick at night with all the empty liquor bottles. In room showers need makeover.
Every bed had a lamp and a plug. They keycard was also the key for the locker (don't have to bring or rent a lock). Kitchen was tiny but had everything you need
